Privacy Workshops at the Internet Governance Forum

The programme for the two privacy workshops I am co-organizing at the first IGF meeting is finally finished. They will take place on Tuesday, 31st October, and we are looking forward to fruitful workshops with a diverse range of perspectives. Speakers include representatives from the Data Protection Commissioners, Microsoft, the OSCE, Privacy International, the Internet Service Providers' Assiciation of South Africa, the Public Interest Registry, or the Association for Progressive Communication - to name a few. But we don't really see them as speakers and much more as participants, as the whole idea is to get something done and collaborate on the two themes, identity management and development. I'll post more about the outcomes when the event is over.

More news on the IGF in general will be here and here. It seems to become a really huge event - more than 1500 people have registered. I only hope we still get something constructive done there.
