The Berkeley Center for Law and Technology and the Team for Research in Ubiquitous Secure Technology (TRUST) hosted a day-long workshop for academics and advocates to discuss technology and privacy issues on Friday, June 22nd at the University of California, Berkeley, Boalt Hall School of Law Goldberg Room.

The main goals of this workshop were:

  1. to help academics identify research opportunities in privacy law
  2. to help academics engage the policy process, and
  3. to help advocates identify existing research for use in their work.
It was an excellent opportunity to develop strategy, identify empirical data for more research, and to think about theoretical frameworks of privacy. The format was a directed discussion, with panels of civil liberties advocates, technologists, and consumer privacy experts.
