Kiel, February 2009

After the successful finish of the first year of the EU-funded project Privacy Open Space (PrivacyOS) the project starts into the New Year with the announcement of the Second PrivacyOS Conference.

As the first PrivacyOS Conference in October 2008 in the European Parliament in Strasbourg was co-located with the International Conference of Privacy and Data Protection Commissioners, also the second PrivacyOS Conference will be held alongside with a conference to establish collective interfaces with other EU projects as well as national and international networks: the "re:publica".

After the positive feedback on the first conference, the second PrivacyOS Conference will also follow the Open Space approach and therefore invites all participants to bring topics to the agenda. “It leaves room for spontaneous creation of new workshops during the conference which reflects the dynamics of the discussion among participants” says Jan Schallaböck, the project Manager of PrivacyOS. “Only a set of timeslots is predefined. The topics for each of the slots are introduced and moderated by the participants themselves.” This approach ensures that all topics relevant to the participants are included and that fields of common interest can be detected and worked on, while at the same time taking into account different perspectives across Europe and beyond. By choosing this innovate conferencing format, dynamic development and interaction between the participants is encouraged.

The second PrivacyOS Conference will focus on “Enabling Privacy on the Web”. Visitors of the “re:publica” are invited to partly join the Open Space slots and to discuss with the PrivacyOS Project Partners about privacy issues or their experiences on this field. Thereby an opportunity to articulate and exchange best practices, challenges and solutions is given.

The conference primarily addresses legal and technical IT experts, interested manufacturers of IT products or services as well as data protection authorities. All persons interested in privacy or data protection aspects are welcome to register for the event. Please find further information on the conference on the project website .

About PrivacyOS

PrivacyOS is a European project aimed at bringing together industry, SMEs, government, academia and civil society to foster development of privacy infrastructures for Europe and is coordinated by the Unabhängiges Landeszentrum für Datenschutz Schleswig-Holstein (ULD), which is also the office of the Privacy Commissioner of the German State of Schleswig Holstein. The general objectives of PrivacyOS are to create a long-term collaboration in the thematic network and establish collective interfaces with other EU projects. Participants exchange research and best practices, as well as develop strategies and joint projects following four core policy goals: Awareness-rising, enabling privacy on the Web, fostering privacy-friendly Identity Management, and stipulating research.

About re:publica

"re:publica" is the leading German conference on Blogs, Social Media and Digital Society. It was hosted in 2007 with 700 participants and in 2008 with 950 participants. In general, “re:publica” affords a wide spectrum within digital society: art, media, culture up to politics and technologies. This is consistent with one of the main objectives of PrivacyOS to bring together activities, initiatives and projects active in privacy protection across Europe.
