"Harmonizing Technology with Society"

is the topic of the "International Workshop on Information Systems for Social 
Innovation (ISSI) 2009". The National Institute of Informatics (Japan), the 
University of Freiburg (Germany) and the Vienna University of Technology 
(Austria) will hold this work on September 30, 2009 from 10am to 6pm at the 
National Center of Sciences in Tokyo, Japan. 

ISSI 2009 has two objectives:
a) Understanding the side effects of centralized and long-term archiving of 
personal data and their cross-state disclosure to third parties across different 
domains of regulations and thereby identification of research challenges for IT 
security and privacy
b) Fostering the collaboration between Europe and Japan

Austrian, Japanese and German researchers and companies will present their 
approaches for ensuring privacy and IT security in Internet services across 
countries. The German Ambassador for Japan will open this workshop. The 
European Commission will present the European Data Protection Directive and 
the regulations for disclosing personal data in non member states of the 
European Union.  The exhibition of ISSI 2009 will show results of on-going 
research activities and opportunities for a research exchange between Europe 
and Japan. The Austrian and Japanese government will attend to this venue.
