The symposium -- hosted by the School of Information -- will also include a panel discussion led by U-M multidisciplinary experts titled "It Takes a Village: Multidisciplinary Voices on Privacy and Ethics in a Hyper-Connected Age.”
Privacy@Michigan also includes a privacy fair where students will be on hand to answer questions about privacy and technical settings in a pop-up clinic. Posters with privacy-related data from U-M research will also be on view.
As part of the U-M Privacy Card Project, attendees are invited to share their thoughts on privacy in six words.
“This is a great opportunity for faculty, students and the U-M community as a whole to be part of the discussion around privacy and contribute their own experience and expertise,” Florian Schaub, assistant professor in the U-M School of Information and College of Engineering said in a statement.
“It is important for us to discuss, learn about and reflect on this ever increasingly important topic, and U-M’s depth and breadth of experts lets us do so in a multidisciplinary way,” Sol Bermann, U-M chief information security officer said in a statement.
