What is ist about?

This workshop purposes to bring together the members of the GI&SDI community whose activities are intended to progress the research, policy and practice. The focus is on the legal aspects of geographic data, either as a lawyer or as a researcher or professional in other fields closely related with law or policy. The objective of the workshop is to have an annual meeting where we can get an overview of existing research and discuss newly emerging legal issues.

  • Morning session: licensing policies and the possibilities for harmonization
  • 1st session of the afternoon: location privacy
  • 2nd afternoon session: the new calls for a “right to data”

For each theme, there will be two or three short presentations followed by a discussion, to which you are all invited to participate.

  • Paul Uhlir (The National Academies)
  • Melanie Dulong-Rosnay (CNRS)
  • Helen Darbishire (Access Info)
  • Ed Parsons (Google)
