    Events of Interest: Mobile and Location Privacy Event at NYU (April 13)

    The New York University Information Law Institute and the Princeton Center for Information Technology Policy will hold a day-long event, “Mobile and Location Privacy: A Technology and Policy Dialog.” The groups say, “The age of ubiquitous computing is here. People routinely carry smartphones and other devices capable of recording and transmitting immense quantities of personal information and tracking their every move. Privacy has suffered in this new environment, with new reports every week of vulnerabilities and unintended disclosures of private information. On Friday, April 13, 2012, New York University’s Information Law Institute and Princeton’s Center for Information Technology Policy will host a technology and policy dialogue about the new world of mobile and location privacy. The gathering aims to bring together the policy and technology communities to discuss the substantial privacy issues arising from the growth of mobile and location technologies. The conference will combine a variety of formats, including roundtable discussions on specific topics, a keynote address, and a technology demonstration.”

    There will be three roundtable discussions and the featured speakers are: “Edward Felten (Federal Trade Commission, Princeton University, Center for Information Technology Policy) will deliver a keynote address to spark the cross-disciplinary dialog, and Ashkan Soltanti (Independent Researcher) will demonstrate key technological elements of mobile and location privacy.” Registration is necessary.
