Privacy and Power: Acknowledging the Importance of Privacy Research and Design for Vulnerable Populations
Lightning talks: Presentation of privacy and power position papers accepted to the workshop.
Panel Discussion: Privacy scholars and Social Justice Scholars will engage the audience in a discussion of themes around vulnerable privacy and power. For panel participants see below.
Break-out activity: Participants will breakout into small groups to discuss challenges, processes, etc. based on the themes: either issues and challenges around “privacy and power” for vulnerable populations OR how the addition of other methods and theories (e.g., intersectionality, queer-Marxism) helps to further tackle issues of power for vulnerable populations
Reporting Outcomes: Each small group will report back their ideas. As a large group, everyone will work together to synthesize ideas and strengthen the proposed guiding principles.
Next Steps/Wrap up: The workshop will end with a large group discussion on opportunities for further collaboration between participants. We will discuss concrete ways to engage the HCI community in research that addresses power.
