The purpose of the 2012 Episteme conference is to take some first steps towards establishing the epistemology of privacy as an important new area of epistemological investigation. In particular, this conference aims to elucidate the role knowledge plays in the privacy debate. Furthermore, given the relation between privacy and secrecy, this conference also aims to investigate the notion of secrecy as an epistemological notion. The theme of the conference thus is Epistemological Issues of Privacy and Secrecy.
