REMINDER:  Please register today, so that we can plan the breakouts accordingly.

Dear colleagues,

As you may be aware, we have been laying the groundwork to launch OpenDP.  It is a community effort to build a suite of trustworthy tools for privacy-protective analysis of sensitive personal data, focused on an open-source library of algorithms for generating statistical releases with the strong protections of differential privacy.  

On May 13th - 15th from 11 AM - 3 PM EDT each day, we will hold an online workshop to share detailed plans for OpenDP and obtain community feedback on them.  We will cover topics such as the programming framework, governance, system integrations, use cases, statistical functionality, and collaborations. 

A detailed agenda and a registration form for the workshop, breakout sessions, and the OpenDP mailing list are available at OpenDP registration.  Please register by May 4.

We hope you will be able to participate in the workshop, and we look forward to your input on and future engagement with OpenDP!  Please feel free to forward this announcement to others who might be interested.

Best wishes for your health and safety during these challenging times,

The OpenDP Executive Committee
(Merce Crosas, James Honaker, Gary King, Mike Phelan, Salil Vadhan, and Annie Wu)
