Calling all Privacy Engineers!

Experts in the privacy engineering field are being asked to step up and share their expertise. We’re looking for speakers to address topics such as user interface design, data ethics in artificial intelligence, privacy by design, de-identification, implementation of privacy technologies and much more. This Call for Proposals is open all year long and we accept sessions on a rolling basis.

Are you looking to share your privacy engineering research with the privacy world? Submit your case studies! If you’re selected, we will offer you an opportunity to present your case study in one of our publications, our live conferences, or virtually on one of web conferences.
