12:30 - 18:30
Hochschulstrasse 4 / room 105, 3012 Bern


Please note that we were forced to cancel and reschedule this event.

We have worked hard to deliver a terrific event with an interesting program, and great opportunities for networking. Whereas we accomplished a great program, we were unable to raise sufficient funds to cover the related expenses. Thanks to all volunteers and speakers, as well as everyone else who contributed to the organization of this event.


The agenda is divided into two main blocks: “Different Aspects of Privacy” and “Revision of Swiss Lawful Interception Act”. You may attend the whole event, or either of the two blocks.
