We're hosting a full day conference on the Future of user data in India, on the 6th of September 2017, which is particularly significant given the recent Supreme Court ruling on the fundamental right to privacy, and two government consultations: one at the TRAI, and another at MEITY. This discussion is supported by Facebook, Google and Microsoft. We've got around 130 confirmations for the discussion across civil society, industry, government, think tanks, media and tech, so we're hoping for a fairly vibrant discussion, from multiple perspectives. We've moved registrations to wait-list, so in case you'd like to apply, please do, and we'll confirm, pending cancellations. We'll be announcing speakers shortly, but our primary focus will be on a participant interaction, given that there are likely to be a diversity of views. As always, we're hoping for disagreements to lead us towards clarity. Please apply for the wait-list here. We're looking for speaker suggestions on differential privacy and de-anonymisation. Please mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any recommendations (from Delhi, preferably). The conference agenda is below. Please leave comments in case you have suggestions for changes. Our intention is for this to be a discussion that looks into the future, not the past. #NAMAprivacy: THE FUTURE OF USER DATA IN INDIA VENUE, DATE & TIME Gulmohar, India Habitat Center, Delhi 6th September 2017, 10:00 am onwards SESSION PLAN (V 3.5) Approach: Maximum of 3 people on a panel. 25 minutes of a sharp panel discussion 35-45 minutes of audience open discussion…
