In 2012, the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation (ITIF) published a paper calling for the development of an R&D roadmap for privacy. This paper added to the flood of national studies and reports, authored by the National Academies, the Federal Trade Commission, the Department of Commerce, and the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology, and one of the fourteen National Academy of Engineering’s 2008 Grand Challenges on Secure Cyberspace, all of which call for the science and engineering community and policy experts to work together on privacy, especially in light of new and disruptive information and communications technology.
The workshop was structured in two parts. The first part had four “domain” panels with government, industry, and academic representatives on each panel. The purpose of these panels was to elucidate the “domain” needs of a sector and in that context, the technical capabilities and opportunities for the research community. The second part of the workshop focused on developing a consensus statement on the need for a concerted effort to address privacy R&D and developing a strategy for communicating this consensus statement to relevant stakeholders. The workshop concluded with a reception.

The Computing Community Consortium (CCC) covers travel expenses for all participants who desire it. Participants make their own travel arrangements in advance, including purchasing airline tickets and making hotel reservations at the workshop hotel. Following the symposium, CCC circulates a reimbursement form that participants complete and submit, along with copies of receipts for amounts exceeding $75.
In general, standard Federal travel policies apply: CCC reimburses for non-refundable economy airfare on U.S. Flag carriers; and no alcohol will be covered.
Additional questions about the reimbursement policy should be directed to Kenneth Hines, Program Associate, CCC (khines [at] cra.org).
