goal of the Symposium is to bring leading researchers in advanced
technology together with leading thinkers from the law and policy
arenas to consider the promise and perils that recent and upcoming
technological innovations hold for privacy. The Symposium will be
co-hosted by the
Center for Intellectual Property Law and Information Technology (CIPLIT)
DePaul University College of Law and the
Information and Network Security (CINS) Center
School of Computer Science, Telecommunications and Information
Systems (CTI) at
The Symposium will be sponsored by McGuire Woods LLP.
9th Annual Niro Distinguished Intellectual Property Lecture and
Luncheon on October 14, sponsored by Niro, Scavone, Haller &
Niro, will be held in conjunction with the Symposium. This year
the lecture will be given by Professor Pamela Samuelson of the
University of California, Berkeley Boalt Hall School of Law.
The Symposium will feature two keynote presentations, three panels of invited speakers, and parallel sessions of contributed papers and works-in-progress on privacy-related technical, legal, and policy-related topics. Each panel will include technical researchers and experts on law and policy related to a particular technology. Technical speakers will seek to educate a diverse audience on the “basics” of the technology and to point out the promise or peril that the technology holds for privacy. Speakers with expertise in law and policy will then respond with analysis of the legal and societal ramifications of the technology. Speakers will then engage with one another and with conference attendees about how to forge solutions to privacy concerns.
