Here is a description of the event, from the event’s Website:
Open Notice is hosting a Data Control Convergence Event in Berlin, mixing different communities and efforts engaged in taking control of personal data. […]
We aim to bring up some of the ‘elephants in the room ‘ when it comes to data control, notice and consent, and data sharing. To discuss what is emerging next in Big Data, data control and privacy.
And to think big in terms of global data control and enforcement. […]
Here is a description of the legal hacking activities at the event, from the Hacker League page for the event:
Using the law for control over and access to my data, opening laws (e.g. crowdsourcing), international data transfers and Safe Harbour. Policy education around big data and data mining systems, or helping people apprehend the meaning of policies or legal systems in their understanding of how a system or data revealed might affect them.
This event is part of a series of events called Data Control and Privacy: Convergence Series.
