Apple CEO Tim Cook is scheduled to make an appearance at the University of Glasgow next week to receive an honorary degree and participate in a a “Fireside Chat” Q&A session afterward. The event, which is only open to students and staff of the university, sold out within an hour of being announced; the university appears to have originally planned to include university alumni as well, but announced a half-hour after opening registration that it could no long offer tickets to a alumni due to a high volume of demand.

While a specific agenda has not been published, 9to5Mac notes that the rector of the University of Glasgow is currently Edward Snowden, suggesting that the conversation may touch on privacy, encryption and government policy issues.
