Of possible interest from Omer Tene:  Established in 2013, the IAPP Westin Research Center was created to encourage and enable research and scholarship in the field of privacy. Each year, the IAPP welcomes two or more recent graduates to spend 12 months on site with our team, reporting to the VP of Research and Education, and working on a broad array of privacy research projects. The fellowship program, which bears the name of Dr. Alan Westin, serves as a pathway for future leaders who aspire to join the privacy community. The IAPP provides the fellows with ample opportunity to engage with the privacy community, participate and present in major conferences and events, and communicate on a daily basis with leaders of the profession from around the world.  The application process opens on January 1, 2014, and closes on February 28, 2014. Interviews will occur for some applicants in March, with final decisions expected at the end of March. Fellowship terms generally run from September through August of each year.  For additional details about the fellowship and application process see the fellowship website.
