On June 3, 2006 Harvard University’s Center for Research on Computation and Society will hold a day-long workshop on Data Surveillance and Privacy Protection.
Although there has been significant public attention to the civil liberties issues of data surveillance over the past few years, there has been little discussion of the actual techniques that could be employed in any but the most restricted settings. Likewise, there has been little discussion of methods and technologies for conducting data surveillance while respecting privacy and preserving civil liberties.
The program looks fascinating. (Via Simson Garfinkel.)
