The workshop will be open to the public and there is no fee for attendance. As discussed above, pre-registration is strongly encouraged, as seating will be limited. To pre-register, please email your name and affiliation to email@example.com by April 29, 2002.

Requests to Participate as a Panelist in the Workshop
Those parties who wish to participate as panelists in the workshop must notify the FTC in writing of their interest in participating on or before April 1, 2002, either by mail to the Secretary of the FTC or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Requests to participate as a panelist should be captioned "Consumer Information Security Workshop – Request to Participate, P024512." Parties are asked to include in their requests a statement setting forth their expertise in or knowledge of the issues on which the workshop will focus and their contact information, including a telephone number, facsimile number, and email address (if available), to enable the FTC to notify them if they are selected. An original and two copies of each document should be submitted. Panelists will be notified on or before April 22, 2002 whether they have been selected.
Using the following criteria, FTC staff will select a limited number of panelists to participate in the workshop. The number of parties selected will not be so large as to inhibit effective discussion among them.
The party has expertise in or knowledge of the issues that are the focus of the workshop.
The party’s participation would promote a balance of interests being represented at the workshop.
The party has been designated by one or more interested parties (who timely file requests to participate) as a party who shares group interests with the designator(s).
In addition, there will be time during the workshop for those not serving as panelists to ask questions.
