Even as we all adjust to day-to-day changes, your work – and the work of the FTC – continues. If you’re a technologist or academic interested in presenting your latest research at the FTC’s PrivacyCon 2020, please let us know by April 10, 2020. Check out the Call for Presentations and respond by the deadline.
The FTC’s fifth annual PrivacyCon is currently set for July 21, 2020. We’ll be announcing more about logistics as the date draws near, but we’re in the process of selecting the research to showcase on the global PrivacyCon stage. Although we welcome work on the broad range of privacy and data security issues, one particular focus of PrivacyCon 2020 will be the privacy of health information – how it’s collected, stored, and transmitted by apps.
Why should you consider throwing your hat into the virtual ring? Because thought-provoking research deserves the widest possible audience of your peers and policymakers.
