CCC to Hold a Series of Workshops on Privacy by Design

The Computing Community Consortium (CCC) will sponsor a series of workshops on Privacy by Design to frame a broader research vision that frames and explores the problem at the conceptual, engineering, design, operational, and organizational levels. A broader vision will allow researchers from various disciplines to interact and collaborate to develop solutions that address practical privacy needs.  The first workshop will focus on the State of Research and Practice in the field.

The workshop organizing committee includes Deirdre Mulligan, Chair (UC Berkeley), Annie Anton (Georgia Tech), Ken Bamberger (UC Berkeley), Travis Breaux (Carnegie Mellon), Nathan Good (Good Research), Susan Graham (UC Berkeley), Susan Landau (Worcester Polytechnic Institute), Helen Nissenbaum (NYU), Fred Schneider (Cornell), Peter Swire (Georgia Tech), Ira Rubinstein (NYU), and Ann Drobnis, (CCC).

The first workshop will be held February 5-6 in Berkeley, CA. Additional information about the workshop can be found on the website. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Ann Drobnis at
