Some URLs for Boston

Message-ID: <CD37F21C.6D379%peter@peterswire.net>
Here are some URLs that should be helpful for Boston:

1.  Agenda:  http://www.w3.org/2011/tracking-protection/agenda-2013-02-11-MIT-Boston.html.  This will be updated.

2.  List of participants: http://www.w3.org/2011/tracking-protection/mit/attendees.txt.  If you are not on this list, please contact Nick Doty at npdoty@w3.org.

3. "Bare-bones compliance spec": http://www.w3.org/2011/tracking-protection/drafts/CambridgeBareBones.html.

I have asked the editors to produce a version of the compliance spec that has the normative language, but not the other text that was in the last version.  You can send suggestions/proposed edits to Justin Brookman or Heather West in advance of Boston.  This text is the base for our discussions.  As previously discussed, we will definitely cover the uses and the de-identification issues.  We also will likely have time for the new Chair to hear an initial discussion on quite a few of the other provisions in the bare-bones spec, with the goal of finding ways to clean up as much of the text as possible in the period after the Boston meeting.

Wednesday call February 6, 2013


Chair:  Peter Swire

1.  Confirmation of scribe – glad to accept volunteer in advance

2.  Offline-caller-identification:
If you intend to join the phone call, you must either associate your phone number with your IRC username once you've joined the call (command: "Zakim, [ID] is [name]" e.g., "Zakim, ??P19 is schunter" in my case), or let Nick know your phone number ahead of  time. If you are not comfortable with the Zakim IRC syntax for associating your phone number, please email your name and phone number to npdoty@w3.org<mailto:npdoty@w3.org>. We want to reduce (in fact, eliminate) the time spent on the call identifying phone numbers. Note that if your number is not identified and you do not respond to off-the-phone reminders via IRC, you will be dropped from the call.

Preview of Boston Face-to-Face

3.   Registration officially closed for face-to-face in Boston on February 11 to 13.  Ifinquiries about registration, contact Nick at npdoty@w3.org<mailto:npdoty@w3.org>.   Agenda for Boston will be updated as the time nears, at http://www.w3.org/2011/tracking-protection/agenda-2013-02-11-MIT-Boston.html.  Reception now planned for Monday evening.

4.  Invitation to send to Swire topics you wish to raise on uses, de-identification, or other related topics for compliance spec discussion.  A specific invitation to consider “safe harbor” approaches to what would count as unlinkability/de-identification.

Media Rating Council

5.  Presentation by George Ivie, Executive Director and CEO of the Media Rating Council, followed by Q&A.   MRC web site: http://www.mediaratingcouncil.org/.

The MRC’s activities include audits of how audience measurements are conducted, and this discussion is relevant to permitted uses that we will discuss in Boston.  Materials should be distributed by Wednesday morning eastern time.

Discussion of homomorphic encryption
6.  Presentation by Khaled el Emam of homomorphic encryption applied to an advertising use case, followed by Q&A.

At the discussion on de-identification last month, several industry people expressed interest in a briefing on homomorphic encryption.  That approach provides certain advantages compared with hashing approaches.  Materials should be distributed by Wednesday morning eastern time.

7.  Announce next meeting & adjourn
