Vitaly Feldman (IBM Research), Katrina Ligett (Hebrew University and Caltech), Kobbi Nissim (Georgetown University), Adam Smith (Pennsylvania State University)

In Spring 2019, a semester-long program on "Foundations and Applications of Data Privacy" will be held at the Simons Institute.  This planning workshop will aid in refining the scope of the semester-long program, and in planning activities that will foster productive collaboration between researchers who work on theoretical aspects of data privacy and those working in areas of potential applications. Toward these goals, the planning workshop will bring together experts from across disciplines related to privacy—theoretical computer science, statistics, game theory, machine learning, databases, social science, and law—to explore and challenge the current frontiers of privacy-related research and to discuss ways to maximize the impact of the program. Specific areas of focus include:

  • barriers to implementing and using the products of theoretical research in privacy;
  • bridging the gaps between mathematical approaches to privacy and approaches rooted in the law, social norms, and ethics.

Participation in this workshop is by invitation only.

Note: The workshop will be immediately followed, on Thursday May 25, by a one-day "Logistics Planning Group" meeting involving a small subset of the participants.
