invite you to attend the 7th Annual

Privacy Papers for Policymakers

An annual event to explore the year’s leading privacy research and scholarship that has been judged most useful for policymakers in the United States Congress, in federal and state agencies, and around the world.

We look forward to an exciting program of thought leadership, including academic guest speakers and the authors of this year’s PPPM scholarship (announced & awarded in November), who will engage with policymakers in a discussion of academic ideas with practical real-world impact.

Featuring the official launch of the Privacy Research and Data Responsibility Research Coordination Network (RCN), an effort supported by the National Science Foundation to produce a community of academic researchers and industry practitioners to address research priorities in the National Privacy Research Strategy.
