The 32nd Annual Conference of Data Protection and Privacy Commissioners will take place on 27-29 October 2010 in Jerusalem. The title of the conference is “Privacy: Generations”. It refers to a new generation of technologies (like mobile devices, biometrics, RFID and cloud computing) and to a new generation of users posting personal information and communicating with friends and colleagues on social networks. This may in turn require a new generation of governance relating to privacy issues.
The programme reflects this focus on new issues and includes many of the subjects that are currently being widely discussed, such as privacy by design, accountability, behavioural targeting and the right to oblivion. The list of distinguished speakers includes three representatives of the EDPS: Peter Hustinx, Giovanni Buttarelli and Rosa Barcelo.
The activities in Jerusalem will start on 26 October with an event organised by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) marking the 30th anniversary of the OECD Privacy Guidelines.
