We have lined up two amazing panels for the Industry & Academia Privacy Symposium, a couple notable panelists being the president of IAPP and the UX lead for Facebook privacy. You won't want to miss the discussion on key online privacy challenges. Please register at by Wednesday at the latest to help us plan.


I'm pleased to announce the Industry & Academia Privacy Symposium on Monday, June 10th at Bentley University (greater Boston area) that will feature presentations and panels by leading privacy scholars, as well as practitioner perspectives on key online privacy challenges. The presenters are authors from a book to be released by Springer next year, "Modern Perspectives on Privacy", edited by Bart Knijnenburg (Clemson U), Heather Lipford (UNC Charlotte), Xinru Page (Bentley U), Nicholas Proferes (U Kentucky), Jen Romano-Berstrom (Bridgewater Associates, UXPA President - User Experience Professionals Assoc.), and Pamela Wisniewski (U Central Florida). The event is open to the public and part of a larger joint effort to translate between academic research and practice in industry, and to make digital privacy research accessible. Thanks to sponsorship by BostonCHI, Bentley's Data Innovation Network, Advanced Distributed Learning, registration costs are subsidized (also, students and those with financial limitations are encouraged to contact us at [log in to unmask] for a complimentary registration). We also want to acknowledge our partnerships with Future of Privacy Forum and UXPA for their role in supporting the event.

Topics will include Privacy in Healthcare IT, Internet of Things, Privacy-Enhancing Technologies, Personalization, Cross-Cultural perspective, Vulnerable Populations, Ethics and Policy, and more. See our website for full details and list of authors.
