The event needs a host, an identified set of institutional co-conveners, and a targeted set of attendees.
We want someone who can contribute an appropriate physical space, including network infrastructure and reconfigurable seating.
We (the ID-Legal group) are the conveners, but we need co-conveners.
An important question is: what do we want out of a co-convener, and what do we think they can get out of it?
A convener will probably be someone who has an interest in the topic area (so for example, a Law school which wants to expose its students to this kind of material, or a commercial enterprise which wants to participate for purposes of strategic planning, or a foundation which has this as part of its charter).
Judi notes that USACM is interested in this topic and might be willing to be a convener.
User groups or large technology vendors are also potential sponsors
Consumer advocacy groups (ACLU, Consumers Union) are also potential sponsors.
