Call for Participation

We are pleased to announce the 3rd annual Symposium on Applications of Contextual Integrity, taking place September 21-22, 2020 at University of Chicago. The aim of the symposium is to foster interaction among diverse communities of research and practice, from academia, policy, and industry, interested in using contextual integrity as a way to reason about privacy, and to design and evaluate, craft regulation, and generate formal logics for privacy.  More info >

Venue Cornell Tech | Roosevelt Island

 

Algorithmic oversight is one of the defining policy problems of our age. Two dimensions of the problem are well appreciated: scale and complexity. But there is a third and equally important dimension, one that has gone comparatively unnoticed: speed. The characteristic time-scales of human decision-making range from years (for democratic deliberations) to a few hundred milliseconds (for instinctual reactions). But software is capable of making decisions far faster: in a matter of microseconds. This mismatch poses serious technical challenges and even deeper ones for managing and responding to algorithmic actions.
 
Six topical panels will cover warfare, financial markets, labor and manufacturing, autonomous vehicles, information security, and content moderation. Participants will discuss current, forthcoming, and potential changes in algorithmic speed in their respective domains and techniques for avoiding, detecting, mitigating, and responding to speed-abetted algorithmic mistakes and abuses.

About

Following a successful inaugural Contextual Integrity Symposium in Fall 2018 at Princeton University, a second 2-day event was hosted at UC Berkeley to encourage interdisciplinary discussions to explore the applications and implications of CI. More info >

 

Date September 13-14 | 2018

Venue Princeton University

Co-sponsors Center for Information Technology Policy, Princeton University and the Digital Life Initiative, Cornell Tech

About

The aim of the first Contextual Integrity Symposium was to foster communication among diverse communities of research and practice that have used the theory of contextual integrity as a framework to reason about, design and evaluate, craft regulation for, and generate formal logics for privacy. After the success of a half-day meeting in Fall 2017, Symposium organizers were excited to follow up with a more comprehensive event to foster discussion across a broader spectrum of disciplines. More info >
