If you have a question about this talk, please contact Matthijs Melissen.

I am organising a workshop at the Royal Society, London, on 9 June 2014, about the tension between surveillance and privacy. In this talk, I’ll explain the motivation and the unusual format, and a bit about the views of the speakers. It will be good to have suggestions about some of the arrangements.

A number of high-profile people have accepted to come, including Sir David Omand and Sir Francis Richards, both former directors of GCHQ , James Arbuthnot MP (Chairman of the Defence Select Committee), Julian Huppert MP, and Helen Goodman MP, and the privacy proponents Caspar Bowden, Charles Raab, and Bart Preneel. Yet others include Jean Jaques Quisquater, the journalists Ewen MacAskill (Guardian) and Gordon Corera (BBC). There will also be some senior current people from GCHQ , including Ian Levy. I think it is a unique combination of people from both the surveillance community and the privacy community.

This talk is part of the Computer Security Seminars series.
