pii2010: Privacy, Identity, Innovation

Information and registration here.

Taking place August 17-19 in Seattle, pii2010 will explore the future of digital privacy, identity and innovation, and how to strike a balance between protecting sensitive information and enabling new technologies and business models.

It’s an all-hands-on-deck conference where industry executives, technologists, consumer advocates, policy experts and other stakeholders will come together as a group to examine critical issues like:

—How emerging technologies & business models are impacting the way data is created, shared and aggregated
—Effective approaches for building online trust with users
—Ways in which user preferences and social norms are shifting
—Changes in the regulatory landscape, in the U.S. and internationally
—The role of anonymity and the future of reputation management on the Web
—The latest developments in user-centric identity management

In addition, pii2010 will serve as the official launch pad for pii Labs, an open forum for brainstorming and collaborating where you will have an opportunity to share your ideas and projects with other participants.

The inaugural pii Labs workshop will be held August 19th at Seattle’s Space Needle building and, when you register for pii2010, you will automatically receive a charter membership that will allow you to participate in our upcoming pii Labs workshops in other cities for free. We’ll be announcing dates and locations after the conference in Seattle, but we’re planning pii Labs workshops in San Francisco and Washington, D.C. following pii2010.
