PrivacyCampDC09 is an “unconference” barcamp about Privacy and Government Issues using about Privacy with a particular focus on electronic privacy and Government Policy. The goal is to connect researchers, developers, practitioners, citizens and other enthusiasts for a day of intense collaboration and knowledge sharing around privacy, government 2.0, and the intersection of the two. Because this is an unconference, we will schedule sessions the morning of the conference, around the topics that people want to lead sessions on or want to hear about- I’m already planning on a couple Privacy Act related sessions.
