How to organize a privacy advocacy event: Real cases histories, do's and don't
"Progetto Winston Smith" organize the" e-privacy" congress (http://e-privacy.winstonsmith.org/) since 2002, for a total of eighteen editions. The event is focused on privacy, transparency and digital civil rights advocacy, from both technical and legal POV. During fourteen years the e-privacy organizers accumulate experience on what, where and who make a certain event a success or a failure; sharing it with others should be valuable ad is the target of this session. Sharing a deep knowledge (as participants) of other events of the Italian scene, like "Hackmeeting" (http://www.hackmeeting.org/) and the "International Journalism Festival" (http://www.journalismfestival.com/), with lectures and panels about the same themes can be valuable. During the session the same info ad experiences from other countries event organizers and advocates should be shared . An ideal track should include 2-3 experiences (best in different counties) of about 10-15 minutes, with a 15 minutes Q&A at the end.
