> The CPDP (Computers, Privacy and Data Protection) conference is neither a purely academic conference nor a business or activist conference. It is a privacy stakeholder conference set up by five academic institutes with the aim to bring together academics, practitioners, policy-makers and civil society so they can meet, exchange ideas and discuss emerging issues of information technology, privacy, data protection and law.
> CPDP is organised by the following institutions: Vrije Universiteit Brussel, the Université de Namur, the Universiteit van Tilburg, the Institut National de Recherche en Informatique et en Automatique and the Fraunhofer Institut für System und Innovationsforschung.
> CPDP has progressively been growing since its inception both in terms of speakers, participants and panels and the ambition for its upcoming fifth consecutive edition is higher than ever. Last year’s conference welcomed more than 400 participants, including 180 speakers from all over the world. Its artistic and public side events such as the privacy party, two public debates, film screening and Pecha Kucha evening attracted an additional 800 people.  Determined to exceed the positive feedbacks received from speakers and participants from the last years, which range from “excellent” to “brilliant agenda keeping”, this year’s conference offers twelve panels, a pre-conference, several academic and cultural side events and a PhD-evening.
> The regular panels include both the presentation of stakeholders’ agenda and intense debates around key issues in the field of privacy, data protection, technology and society. In addition, specific sessions will be dedicated to the issues of ICT and aging, surveillance and law-enforcement and eDiscovery.

> The next CPDP conference will be from 25-27 January 2012. The conference is called “European Data Protection: Coming of Age.” To celebrate the EU Active Aging year, a one-day event will be devoted to “Aging, Technology and Paternalism.” CPDP is by no means devoted to one theme. As usual it covers the broadest possible range of data protection issues. With the conference theme “Coming of Age” CPDP underlines the growing maturity of data protection legislation and practices and winks loosely to the EU Active Aging year. The CPDP Scientific Committee invites papers in the fields of law, political sciences, social sciences and computer sciences for the main conference and the PhD evening session.

> CPDP would like to create a platform where all people passionate about data-protection can meet. If you are a social, political or computer scientist, activist, policy maker, hacker and/or lawyer interested in being a speaker or getting involved in next year’s conference please let the conference secretariat know on following address: rocco.bellanova at cpdpconferences.org
> All presented papers will be considered (peer-review) for publication in the conference book published by Springer.
> At present, already three books based on papers presented at previous CPDP conferences have been published, and a third one is currently undergoing the editing process:
> Gutwirth, S., Y. Poullet, P. De Hert, C. de Terwangne, and S. Nouwt, eds. Reinventing Data Protection? Dordrecht: Springer, 2009. (http://www.springer.com/law/international/book/978-1-4020-9497-2)
> Gutwirth, S., Y. Poullet, and P. De Hert, eds. Data Protection in a Profiled World. Dordrecht: Springer, 2010. (http://www.springer.com/law/international/book/978-90-481-8864-2?changeHeader)
> Gutwirth, S., Y. Poullet, P. De Hert and R. Leenes eds. Computers, Privacy and Data Protection: an Element of Choice. Dordrecht: Springer, 2011. http://www.springer.com/law/international/book/978-94-007-0640-8
> It has been recognized that in order to achieve consistent and meaningful progress in data protection, diverse stakeholders – regulators, lawyers, privacy professionals, technologists, service operators, and others – have to work together in order to understand and incorporate the requirements and technical/process limitations of each constituency. However, research in the area of data protection continues to be segmented, with each constituency focusing on its own set of issues. The goal of this award that we tentatively call “CPDP multi-disciplinary privacy research award” is to promote the need for and reward the results of multidisciplinary research, with the participation of the representative of diverse constituencies engaged in the investigation of the new ideas in data protection. A call for papers will go out soon.
