The Future of Privacy Forum (FPF) invites privacy scholars and authors with an interest in privacy issues to submit papers to be considered for FPF’s second edition of “Privacy Papers for Policy Makers.”

Special thanks to our Policy Papers for Policy Makers Sponsors:

•      To highlight important research and analytical work on a variety of privacy topics for policy makers
•      Specifically, to showcase papers that analyze current and emerging privacy issues and either propose achievable short-term solutions, or propose new means of analysis that could lead to solutions.

•      Academics, privacy advocates and Chief Privacy Officers on FPF’s Advisory Board will review the submitted papers to determine which papers are best suited and most useful for policy makers in Congress, at federal agencies and for distribution to data protection authorities internationally.
•      Two papers selected by the chairs of the Privacy Law Scholars Conference will be included in the publication and will receive a cash award from the International Association of Privacy Professionals.
•      The Future of Privacy Forum will announce the selected papers at an event with privacy leaders in September and will provide a printed digest to policy makers in the United States and abroad.

This compilation is not intended to be a publication of original work.  Rather we seek to make policymakers aware of papers presented at workshops or published in journals and we provide this compilation of descriptions of these papers in order to call attention to those deemed most significant.
