> Aim of the award
> It has been recognized that in order to achieve consistent and meaningful progress in data protection, diverse stakeholders – regulators, lawyers, privacy professionals, tech- nologists, service operators, and others – have to work together in order to understand and incorporate the requirements and technical/process limitations of each constitu- ency. However, research in the area of privacy and data protection continues to be segmented, with each constituency focusing on its own set of issues. The goal of this award, the CPDP multi-disciplinary privacy research award is to promote the need for and reward the results of multidisciplinary research.
> 
> Eligible papers need to be co-authored by representatives of at least two different (scientific) disciplines, one technical, one non-technical (e.g., a lawyer and a computer scientist, a cryptographer and a policy researcher, an economist and a technologist). Preference is given to papers where authors combine their expertise to address both technical and societal issues. The topics of the eligible papers are broad and include the subjects below, but are not limited to these subjects:

> what is CPDP?
> Every year in brussels, CPDP gathers policy makers, academics, computer scientists, consultants, practitioners and activists from all over the world to exchange ideas and discuss emerging issues in information technology, privacy, data protection and law.
> 
> CPDP is a non profit platform originally founded in 2007 by research groups from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, the Université de Namur and Tilburg University. From the start CPDP wanted to be more than just an academic platform. The mission is to gather all relevant stakeholders in an atmosphere of indepence and mutual respect. The platform was joined by the Institut National de Recherche en Informatique et en Automatique and the Fraunhofer Institut für System und Innovationsforschung. Today, under the CPDP umbrella, panels are organised by a multitude of institutes and research groups: the Zentrum Technik und Gesellschaft der TU Berlin, the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, the Fundamental Rights Agency, and others. Sponsor money is used to organize the platform, to support some speakers and PhD students and to set up the Multidiscipli- nary Privacy Paper Award.
