Compliance by Data Privacy Controls and Vocabularies

The primary goal of the workshop is to explore interoperability in privacy and compliance expressions using Linked Data. But based on transportable linked data, many privacy concepts can be created. Those are also welcome and give the workshop an additional exploratory aspect.

While we hope to identify opportunities and possible timelines for standardization, we do not anticipate that W3C will form a Working Group as a direct result of this workshop. Instead, if we do identify areas that need Web standardization, our aim would be to incubate and refine these ideas, to make sure that the right steps are taken at the right time for the key stakeholders involved.

For more details on the conference, see the Data Privacy Controls and Vocabularies Workshop page.

Sponsoring W3C's Data Privacy Controls and Vocabularies Workshop shows leadership and helps move the dialog forward.

Why Sponsor This Workshop?

The cost to hold a workshop is about €5K. This includes costs for venue (including setup and custodial costs), AV requirements (optionally including recording), catering (lunch and breaks), materials, travel and staffing, and other considerations.

Most of the planning, coordination, agenda building, and writing outcome reports are done for no cost by W3C staff or volunteers. But without sponsorships, W3C cannot hold workshops.

If you see value in discussing possible linked data privacy, GDPR and privacy, and believe it will help your business, sponsoring is the best way to ensure that this conversation happens, and that you are seen as a leader and a forward-looking enabler of the Privacy debate.

The more sponsorships we get, the better the amenities will be, including options like recording and transcription for spreading and preserving what was discussed, T-shirts for attendees, and better meals.

Becoming a Sponsor

W3C Workshops, meetups, and other events bring you into direct contact with leading Web technology experts: representatives from industry, research, government, and the developer community.

Whether your interests are focused on a particular topic being discussed by a Working Group, or you wish to reach a diverse international audience setting W3C's strategic direction, sponsorship helps your organization reach W3C's engaged participants.

Sponsorships offset a portion of our meeting costs, so W3C welcomes multiple sponsors for each event. All proposals for sponsorship are subject to W3C approval.
