Workshop Announcement

This workshop will bring together computer scientists, legal scholars, social scientists, and consumers of data to understand the extent to which privacy currently limits the sharing of data. Discussions will include but not be limited to research data and will seek to develop standards and best practices that enable new information flows in domains ranging from healthcare to energy. The workshop will also address issues of fairness of data-driven systems and processes, and their connections to privacy. These topics present central challenges for the flow of data within and between government, commercial, and academic institutions, data that are crucial to address science, engineering, and policy challenges.

The workshop will address five major themes:

Related to each theme, there will be at least one tutorial aimed at the entire workshop audience. These tutorials will summarize the state of the art-in both research and practice-related to that theme. There will also be one or more sessions on recent research related to each theme. The presentations in these sessions will explain the main ideas in a language accessible to a broad audience, but will include discussion aimed at specialists.
