The Public Voice Conference will take place this year in Jerusalem on 25 October 2010. (Information: http://thepublicvoice.org/events/israel10/) This event is held every year during the annual Conference of Privacy and Data Protection Commissioners' in Jerusalem, Israel (more information here: http://bit.ly/ac9z6z).



There is an opportunity to become part of the "online visibility team" by blogging or tweeting about some or all of the panels in your native language. All tweets will be featured live during the event and blog articles will be made available on the conference web page (http://thepublicvoice.org/events/israel10/).

If you are interested in participating, send me an e-mail to cedric [at] laurant [dot] org with information about your input (tweets or blog articles, or both); the panels you are interested in covering, the language of your contribution and your e-mail. Technical information will then be sent to you a few days before the event.
The conference will be retransmitted remotely by online webcast.

Your contributions will be featured on the conference web page (http://thepublicvoice.org/events/israel10/) and disseminated to all Data Protection Commissioners conference attendees (about 1000 people attended last year's conference in Madrid).


The goals of this year's conference are:
- to examine emerging privacy issues, including smart grid technology, airport body scanners, and biometric identifiers;
- to assess progress on the Madrid Privacy Declaration, a Civil Society's Declaration that aims at refocusing the attention to fundamental human rights, especially the right to privacy and data protection, in the context of recent technological changes that put at risk how those rights are protected (http://thepublicvoice.org/madrid-declaration/).
- to promote civil society participation in decisions concerning the protection of privacy as both a fundamental human right and an essential facilitator for a global economy.
- to review and coordinate civil society involvement in privacy discussions in regional and other global arenas: CoE, EU, APEC, IGF, OECD, ITU, ICANN.

The panels will discuss:
- The Civil Society's "Madrid Declaration" of Nov. 2009
