We invite you to join us at Seventh Annual Public Policy Symposium on the Law & Economics of Privacy and Data Security on May 10, 2019, presented by the Program on Economics & Privacy of the Law & Economics Center at George Mason University’s Antonin Scalia Law School in Arlington, Virginia.
The revelation of the Cambridge Analytica scandal marked a tipping point in policy debates around Big Data, but while new regulations seem inevitable, the path of American privacy and data security law is still uncertain. How should lawmakers respond to the mounting public distrust of the digital economy? This year’s annual public policy symposium will harvest the insights from empirical research in order to better understand the nature of modern privacy risks as well as the risks of potential government interventions. Our distinguished speakers will comment on the likely impact of proposed omnibus privacy bills that have been circulating in Congress as well as the practical challenges of protecting personal data in specific contexts such as health, policing, and the U.S. Census.
The symposium will include a luncheon address by Harvard Law professor, Yochai Benkler, and a fireside chat with Neil Chilson, former FTC staff attorney. The four panels include “The Empirical Economics of Privacy and Data Security: What Do We Know, and What Do We Wish We Knew?”, “Case Studies: Privacy in the Context of Health, Elections, Policing, Environmental Innovation, and Smart Cities”, “Dueling Federal Privacy Bills”, and “Privacy and Access to Public Research Datasets.”

FPF’s monthly Privacy Landscape call is scheduled for NEXT TUESDAY, May 21, 2019 from 4pm-5pm ET.
FPF staff and Tanya Forsheit (Chair of Frankfurt Kurnit’s Privacy & Data Security Group) will provide an update and opportunity to discuss the status of proposed amendments to the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA).
We are also fortunate to be joined by Ashwin Machanavajjhala, (Associate Professor, Director of Graduate Studies, Department of Computer Science, Duke University). Prof. Machanavajjhala will describe and discuss his work regarding Ektelo: an open source framework for defining differentially private computation.
Please note: the presentation will be useful to privacy and compliance experts, but will be of particular interest to technical members of your organization’s team. Please invite interested technologists from your organization to join the call!

Combining their privacy expertise, FPF and WSGR will conduct an Ad Tech Master Class about how ad tech works and continue with a discussion about the latest legal developments applicable to these technologies. Here you will gain a clear understanding of the technologies ranging from cookies and mobile apps to ad networks and real-time bidding. We will also discuss the business models as well as data flows in analytics and ad tech so that you can make informed compliance decisions. Our panelists then will address the latest legal developments that may impact market practices in ad tech, including:
• How the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) affected market practices
• The recent Court of Justice Advocate General Opinions in Planet49 and FashionID
• An update on the e-Privacy Regulation
• The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)
• An overview of ongoing discussions about comprehensive federal privacy legislation in the U.S.
We hope to see you there.
PLSC assembles privacy law scholars and practitioners from around the world to discuss current issues and foster greater connections between academia and practice. It brings together privacy law scholars, privacy scholars from other disciplines (economics, philosophy, political science, computer science), and practitioners (industry, legal, advocacy, and government). For more information, see our FAQ.
PLSC is a paper workshop. There are no published proceedings, and after the event, papers are not available. Because authors’ drafts are works in progress, we do not publicly release these writings, nor do we publicize them (no Tweeting, blogging, etc.), as authors’ ideas are often inchoate and need incubation for full development.
At PLSC, papers workshops are led by a “commenter” who facilitates a discussion among participants on an author’s paper. Authors are encouraged to participate in “listening” mode. There are no panels or talking head events at PLSC.
All participants are expected to read and be prepared to discuss one paper per session (usually a total of 8 papers), and thus PLSC requires significant preparation. We recommended that participants devote 1.5 to 2 days of reading to prepare prior to the conference. One does not need to submit a paper to participate in PLSC–indeed most participants do not.
PLSC is an annual event, alternating between Berkeley Law and The George Washington University School of Law.
