Bureau of Labor Statistics Conference Center


Call for Abstracts for a Session Presentation

Abstract Submission Deadline: August 4, 2017


Disclosure Limitation is at a crossroads! With the ready availability of commercial data and new advances in computer science, many techniques that traditionally protected the confidentiality of record-level data are being called into question.


Come share your experience! What disclosure limitation problems are your organization facing? How are you working to close the gap between science and practice? Where do current techniques fall short? Which problems are real, and which are media creations?
