With your support, the Data Privacy Vocabularies and Controls Community Group has been launched:

This group was originally proposed on 2018-05-23
by Axel Polleres. The following people supported its
      Axel Polleres

      Jose Emilio Labra Gayo
      Joss Langford
      Uros Milosevic

Please note that supporting a group is different from joining
a group. Supporters must also enroll if they wish to participate.

 The mission of the W3C Data Privacy Vocabularies and Controls CG
(DPVCG) is to develop a taxonomy of privacy terms, which include in
particular terms from the new European General Data Protection
Regulation (GDPR), such as a taxonomy of personal data as well as a
classification of purposes (i.e., purposes for data collection), and
events of disclosures, consent, and processing such personal data. 

 The Community Group shall officially start on 25th of May 2018, the
official data of the GDPR coming into force, as a result of the W3C 
Workshop on Data Privacy Controls and Vocabularies  in Vienna earlier
this year. 

 It is the goal of the CG to harmonize related efforts and bring
together stakeholders that already have brought forward proposals to
develop respective vocabularies to enable semantic interoperability and
interchange of transparency logs about personal data processing,  enable
data portability for data subjects, etc. The exact scope of use cases
related to making personal data processing interoperable by respective
standards in order to ease proof of compliance with the GDPR and related
privacy protection regulations will be the first deliverable of the CG.
More concretely, the following steps and deliverables are planned so


    Use cases and requirements:  in a first step we will collect and
align common requirements from industry and also from other stakeholders
to identify areas where interoperability is most needed in the handling
of personal data. The outcome shall be a prioritized list of
requirements for what needs to be covered by shared vocabularies to
enable interoperability in the identified use cases. 
    Alignment of vocabularies and identification of overlaps:  in a
second document, we will collect existing vocabularies and
standardization efforts to identify their overlaps and suitability as
starting points to minimally and extensibly cover the requirements
prioritized in step one.  
    Glossary of GDPR terms:  a third deliverable will be an
understandable glossary of common terms from the GDPR and how they shall
be covered by the agreed vocabularies.  
    Vocabularies  based on the heterogeneity or homogeneity of the
agreed upon use cases and requirements, we will define a single or a
modular set of vocabularies for exchanging and representing
interoperably: personal data, purposes/processing, disclosure/consent,
anonymisation, and transparency logs. 


 For the moment, we plan the following milestones: 

   24 May 2018: Presentation of this initial charter draft to initial
   25 May 2018: Launch of the CG by registration as a proposed  W3C
Community Group  
   26-30 May 2018 until 30 June 2018: dissemination of invitations to
participate in the CG &amp; feedback collection on the present charter
   29-31 August 2018: 1st Face-2-face meeting co-located at  MyData2018
in Helsinki, Finland, agreement on first steps and regular telephone
conference slots and commencement of biweekly telephone conferences. 
   12-14 November 2018: 2nd Face-2-face meeting co-located with the 
European Big Data Value Forum 2018  in Vienna, Austria. The goal of this
meeting is have set up a common environment to jointly work on
deliverables, and have identified editors for first drafts. 

 Milestones beyond the second meeting shall be defined as outcome of
these first two F2F meetings. The current goal is to agree on first
public drafts of minimal sets of vocabularies to be finished by December
2018, with first stable working drafts being reached latest on 25 May

 The CG shall work in an agile manner to iteratively propose and refine
its scope, starting from (i) collecting and prioritizing  requirements
and existing input vocabularies, (ii) extracting minimal
overlaps/coverage, (iii) agreement on minimal representations, (iv)

 In this sense the deliverables structure above shall be understood as
current snapshot of the planned focus which directly reflects the
prioritized outcomes of the Vienna workshop. If more is needed in terms
of standardization, e.g., a discussion of protocols/architectures then
we shall be open to extend the scope later on, as soon as first results
have been achieved on those primary, initial goals. 

   The CG invites  all  interested stakeholders to contribute,
particularly those  people  who expressed interest at the Vienna
workshop, but as all W3C CGs considers itself an Open Community with the
intention to grow to a critical mass to finally bring its results into a
W3C working group for standardization. 

 Chairs (tentative) 

    Bert Bos ,  ERCIM  W3C  (chair) 
    Axel Polleres ,  WU (Wirschaftsuniversitat Wien) - Vienna University
of Economics and Business  (chair)   


 In order to reach our goal to launch this CG on 25 May 2018 please
support the launch of this group. You will need a W3C account to do so;
request an account  if necessary. 

Thank you,
