Pictures from the meeting are available. Meeting minutes (by Richard Barnes and by Roger Marshall) are available here and here.
Last October I attended the W3C privacy workshop and contributed a paper and gave an overview presentation of the IETF GEOPRIV architecture. The document might be helpful for people working on location-based services (where privacy plays a role). Note that some details might not be correct anymore since we updated the Geolocation
