The 18th annual conference of the Canadian Information Technology Law Association is coming up in Montreal, October 20-21, 2014.
I have not missed an IT-Can conference since I started practicing law and have been honoured to be a regular speaker. (In fact, I liked the association so much, I was the president of the Association for a while. :) I'm moderating a panel on privacy, big data and data governance. There are other excellent plenary sessions and round-tables for anyone with an interest in tech or privacy law. A veritable buffet:
