The First Interdisciplinary Web Privacy Seminar @ Southampton: Thursday 1st November 2012

Thursday, November 1st, 10:00 – 15:00, Building 32 Coffee Room

Many of us within the Web Science DTC at Southampton, and beyond, have research interests related to privacy. To foster collaboration and to help develop some common understanding and direction, we’re arranging a day-long seminar on web privacy on Thursday, November 1st 2012. Refreshments will be provided by the Web Science Doctoral Training Centre.

We’d like to invite anybody who’s working on privacy to take part and we hope that all attendees will give a short presentation (5-20 minutes) about their research or interest in privacy, focusing (if possible) on some or all of the following questions:

  1. What IS privacy?
  2. Why is privacy important?
  3. What changes, if any, do you think could improve our privacy? Technical, social, legal or otherwise.

After the presentations, we’ll discuss the questions that have arisen and examine possibilities for future research.

To register for the seminar, please use the form below and do get in touch, R.Gomer (at) soton.ac.uk, if you have any questions.
