Event description: 

The Location Tracking and Biometrics Conference will take place on Sunday, March 3 at Yale Law School. Judges, policymakers, practitioners, academics, and other experts will gather to consider what comes next after last year’s Supreme Court decision in U.S. v. Jones, about the constitutionality of GPS-tracking vehicles without a warrant. They will discuss various forms of location tracking and the implications of biometric identification.

This conference is jointly sponsored by the Information Society Project and NYU’s Engelberg Center, and is supported by the Thomson Reuters Initiative on Law and Technology. For more information, contact heather.branch@yale.edu.
