This workshop will bring together scholars from several areas to discuss and advance the state of the art and help bridge the communication barriers between the many disciplines from which expertise is necessary for practical progress. Specifically, the workshop will address the needs of government agencies, the challenges of industry implementations, the tools (programming languages, query systems, evaluation platforms and so on) that ease (and drive) the design of working, scalable systems, legal and policy constraints, ethical issues associated with privacy, and potential standards and best practices for release of statistical information.

Further details about this workshop will be posted in due course. Enquiries may be sent to the organizers workshop-privacy1 [at] lists [dot] simons [dot] berkeley [dot] edu (at this address).

All events take place in the Calvin Lab auditorium.
