To encourage the next generation of privacy and data security researchers to explore economic questions in privacy and data security, the Federal Trade Commission today issued a call for presentations from students to coincide with the agency’s third PrivacyCon conference on February 28, 2018.
The PrivacyCon Student Poster Session will coincide with PrivacyCon 2018, which will focus on the economics of privacy.
The Student Poster Session call for submissions seeks research and input on issues and topics that will be covered by PrivacyCon 2018. This includes research examining how to assess the greatest threats to privacy, ways for companies to weigh the costs and benefits of security by design techniques, and potential market solutions and failures related to privacy and security.
The Student Poster session is also aimed at encouraging interaction and discussion between experienced researchers and students. The session will provide students an opportunity to present and discuss their research and its relation to privacy and data security policy and law.
The deadline for the Student Poster submissions is December 15, 2017. More information about how to submit presentations and about PrivacyCon 2018 can be found on the event page.
