OVERVIEW OF THE BARBARA WELLBERY MEMORIAL AWARD APPLICATION INFORMATION Thank you for interest in the Barbara Wellbery Memorial Award. Here is the information you will need to understand the purpose of the Award, who is eligible and how to apply. The Selection Committee welcomes your interest and participation in our program. ____________________________________________________________________________________ RULES AND PROCEDURES Who was Barbara Wellbery (1948-2003)? Barbara Wellbery, a partner at Morrison & Foerster LLP, was one of the leading experts on international privacy issues. In the privacy community, Barbara was well respected for her professional excellence, in-depth knowledge of privacy issues, and strong commitment to fostering international understanding of differing privacy approaches around the world. Barbara was the chief architect and principal negotiator of the safe harbor privacy accord with the European Union. This accord is emblematic of how Barbara worked to promote greater international understanding of privacy issues and resolve seemingly intractable differences of opinions. Her success was due in large measure to her commitment to finding ways to integrate elements from different approaches to create viable and practical solutions. What is the Barbara Wellbery Award? The award is granted annually by the Morrison & Foerster Foundation (“MoFo Foundation”). This year, the author of the winning paper will receive a $3,000 cash award. In addition, the individual will receive an invitation to present theses of his or her paper at the 26th International Conference on Privacy and Personal Data Protection which will be held in Wroclaw, Poland, on September 14-16, 2004.
