CONFERENCE ANNOUNCEMENT

 

REPUTATION ECONOMIES IN CYBERSPACE

 

December 8, 2007

Yale Law School

 

 

The Information Society Project at Yale Law School is proud

to present Reputation Economies in Cyberspace. The

symposium will be held on December 8, 2007 at Yale Law

School in New Haven, CT.

 

This event will bring together representatives from

industry, government, and academia to explore themes in

online reputation, community-mediated information

production, and their implications for democracy and

innovation. The symposium is made possible by the generous

support of the Microsoft Corporation.

 

A distinguished group of experts will map out the terrain

of reputation economies in four panels: (1) Making Your

Name Online; (2) Privacy and Reputation Protection; (3)

Reputation and Information Quality; and (4) Ownership of

Cyber-Reputation. See below for more detail on each panel;

a current list of confirmed speakers is available at the

conference website.

 

 

REGISTRATION:

 

Online registration is available now at:

 

wems.worldtek.com/RepEcon

 

There is a $95 registration fee ($45 for non-Yale

students), which includes lunch. Yale students and faculty

and members of the press may attend for free. For more

information, see:

 

isp.law.yale.edu/reputation

 

 

PROGRAM:

 

SYMPOSIUM ON REPUTATION ECONOMIES IN CYBERSPACE

 

Panel I: Making Your Name Online

 

Moderator: Jack Balkin - Director, Information Society

Project and Knight Professor of Constitutional Law and the

First Amendment, Yale Law School

 

Panelists:

Michel Bauwens - Founder, The Foundation for P2P

Alternatives

Rishab A. Ghosh - Senior Researcher, United Nations

University-MERIT

Auren Hofman - CEO, Rapleaf

Hassan Masum - Senior Research Co-ordinator, McLaughlin-

Rotman Centre for Global Health

Beth Noveck - Professor of Law and Director, Institute for

Information Law and Policy, New York Law School

 

This panel will discuss the shifts in the reputation

economy that we are witnessing, largely the transition from

accreditation to participatory, community-based modes of

reputation management.

 

Some of the questions the panel will address include:

 

What are the new norms for cyber-reputation?

How do these depart from offline models?

How can reputation in one online system be transported to

another?

How do SNS and reputation connect?

How do you bootstrap and cash out?

 

 

Panel II: Privacy and Reputational Protection

 

Moderator: Michael Zimmer - Microsoft Resident Fellow,

Information Society Project and Post-Doctoral Associate,

Yale Law School

 

Panelists:

Alessandro Acquisti - Assistant Professor of Information

Technology and Public Policy, H. John Heinz III School of

Public Policy and Management, Carnegie Mellon University

Danielle Citron - Assistant Professor of Law, University of

Maryland School of Law

William McGeveran - Associate Professor, University of

Minnesota Law School

Dan Solove - Associate Professor, George Washington

University Law School

Jonathan Zittrain - Professor of Internet Governance and

Regulation, Oxford University; Visiting Professor for

Entrepreneurial Legal Studies, Harvard Law School

 

Cyber-reputation management is based on transactions in

information that is often sensitive and is always

contextual. This brings up many questions about the need

to protect one's privacy and reputation within and outside

this system.

 

Some of the questions the panel will address:

 

How is participation in cyber-reputation systems related to

defamation and free speech?

What happens when cyber-reputation spills over into offline

activities and relationships like the political process,

job applications, or school admissions?

What happens when your second life meets your first?

Requiring divulgence of real name or other personal data.

Is opting out possible?

Pending legislation on S495 - data security and privacy.

 

 

Panel III: Reputational Quality and Information Quality

 

Moderator: Laura Forlano - Visiting Fellow, Information

Society Project

 

Panelists:

Urs Gasser - Associate Professor of Law, University of St.

Gallen

Ashish Goel - Associate Professor, Management Science and

Engineering and Computer Science, Stanford University

Darko Kirovski - Senior Researcher, Microsoft Corporation

Mari Kuraishi - President, Global Giving Foundation

Vipul Ved Prakash - Founder, Cloudmark

 

Evidently, unlike traditional reputation mechanisms that

relied on small group acquaintances and formal

accreditation mechanisms, the cyber-reputation economy is

heavily mediated by technology. This raises the risk of

breaking the delicate checks and balances that are

necessary for the system to ensure quality of both the

informational outcomes and the participants' reputation.

This panel will try to highlight the connections between

the way the new systems are built, and the outcome they

produce.

 

Some of the questions the panel will address:

 

How can we assure quality in online reputation economies?

What is the connections between the system design and the

quality information?

How good are the alternative accreditation mechanisms and

how easy are they to hijack?

How can employment discrimination law adapt to the

realities of online reputation?

 

 

Panel IV: Ownership of Cyber-Reputation

 

Moderator: Eddan Katz - Executive Director, Information

Society Project and Lecturer-in-Law and Associate Research

Scholar, Yale Law School

 

Panelists:

John Clippinger - Senior Fellow, Berkman Center for

Internet & Society, Harvard Law School

Eric Goldman - Assistant Professor and Director, High Tech

Law Institute, Santa Clara University School of Law faculty

Bob Sutor - Vice President Open Source and Standards, IBM

Corporation

Mozelle Thompson - Thompson Strategic Consulting; (former

FTC Commissioner)

Rebecca Tushnet - Professor, Georgetown University Law

Center

 

The data and information that are collected in online

reputation systems are both valuable and powerful. The

ability to control this information, store it, process it,

access it, and transport it are crucial to the maintenance

of the reputation economy. This panel will address the

important set of questions that concern the ownership of

this information.

 

Some questions the panel will address:

 

Who owns one's online reputation? Who owns the metadata?

How portable is online reputation? Should it be

transportable from one system to another?

How is reputation connected to the interoperability

question? Should we have international standards governing

reputation?

CALL FOR PAPERS

 

for an International Conference on

 

THE INDUSTRIAL ORGANISATION OF SECURITIES MARKETS:

COMPETITION, LIQUIDITY AND NETWORK EXTERNALITIES

 

to be held in

Frankfurt, Germany, June 13-14, 2008

 

Organized by Center for Financial Studies,

E-Finance Lab and Deutsche Borse AG

 

Deadline for submissions: January 15, 2008

 

 

We are inviting submissions of papers for an international

conference on "The Industrial Organisation of Securities

Markets: Competition, Liquidity and Network Externalities".

The objective of the conference is to bring together

academics and members of the industry to focus on state-of-

the-art academic research in an environment that stimulates

discussions and an exchange of ideas.

 

 

TOPICS:

 

The securities markets landscape has been changing quite

significantly over the last years, through the increase of

competition, the advancement of technology and the

restructuring of the industry. This process depends heavily

on the characteristics of the industry within the

individual layers of the entire value chain (trading,

clearing and settlement), be it e.g. liquidity effects and

network externalities. The industrial organisation of

securities markets will keep on evolving, as the value

chain will be impacted by regulatory changes. In the

European Union initiatives such as the Markets in Financial

Instruments Directive (MiFID) or the clearing and

settlement industry's Code of Conduct, and in the USA the

Regulation NMS are already challenging the industry of

securities markets. Therefore, the aim of the conference is

to shed light on all aspects of the industrial organization

of securities markets. This not only includes trading but

also clearing and settlement services, and both cash and

derivative markets. The submission of both theoretical and

empirical papers in the following fields is especially

encouraged:

 

- Competition for order, clearing and settlement flows

- Consolidation vs. fragmentation effects at the various

levels along the value chain

- Importance of liquidity effects

- Existence and impact of network externalities

- Implications of new regulations

 

 

CONFERENCE CHAIRS:

 

Peter Gomber, Frankfurt University and E-Finance Lab

Erik Theissen, University of Bonn and Center for Financial

Studies

 

 

SUBMISSION PROCEDURE:

 

Research papers should be sent electronically (MS Word or

pdf) together with full contact information to:

 

CONTACT: Erik Theissen at

Email: MAILTO:theissen@uni-bonn.de

 

by January 15, 2008.

15, 2008. Accommodation and reasonable travel expenses of

presenters will be covered.

CONFERENCE INFORMATION:

 

The SOEGW conference is a biennial international meeting
