Privacy and Information Security Congress 2011
The Future of the Internet: Opportunities & Challenges of Web 3.0

November 28 - 29th, 2011

The Westin Ottawa Hotel
Ottawa, Ontario, Canada


Many computer, business and information experts argue that the internet is no longer just a huge repository of digital information, but that new programs, services and uses are transforming it into an intelligent and intuitive tool where “personalization” or “contextualization” of information is the primary product and goal. This new context-driven nature of the web is frequently referred to as “Web 3.0”.

In Web 3.0, developers and providers configure online technology, applications and services to automatically determine the content that is most relevant and to organize and deliver it as personalized packets. But is this privacy-invasive? Are there information security issues? Or is personalization what the public wants and needs to effectively manage the overwhelming flow of data that is now an integral part of their daily lives? What are the opportunities with Web 3.0? What are the challenges? And is this the future we all want?

These are the general issues that will be explored in Privacy and Information Security Congress 2011. The committee invites the submission of papers or studies that directly address the specific types or kinds of opportunities and challenges raised by Web 3.0 digital technologies or applications. The committee has provided below a list of specific subject matter as a general guide, but the list is neither exhaustive nor exclusive.
