Privacy Symposium

We are pleased to announce the Industry & Academia Privacy Symposium on Monday, June 10th at Bentley University (greater Boston area) that will feature presentations and panels by leading privacy scholars, as well as practitioner perspectives on key online privacy challenges. The presenters are authors from a book to be released by Springer next year, “Modern Perspectives on Privacy”, edited by several in our networked privacy community!

The event is open to the public and part of a larger joint effort to translate between academic research and practice in industry, and to make digital privacy research accessible. Thanks to sponsorship by BostonCHI, Bentley’s Data Innovation Network, Advanced Distributed Learning, and to our partnership with UXPA, registration is subsidized and extremely low-cost (students and those with financial limitations are encouraged to contact us at for a complimentary registration).

Topics will include Privacy in Healthcare IT, Internet of Things, Privacy-Enhancing Technologies, Personalization, Cross-Cultural perspective, Vulnerable Populations, Ethics and Policy, and more. See our website for full details and list of authors.

Register by June 3!

Update: We had a successful one-day symposium! Thanks to the symposium co-organizers:
