Dear all,

The usual apology for cross-posting but this may be of interest to some on the list.

Call for Panels CPDP2019 – Data Protection and Democracy

This call for panels is aimed at academic consortia, research projects, think tanks and other research organisations. (Another call, to individuals for academic research papers, will go out towards mid June 2018)

The overarching theme of the 2019 edition is "Data Protection and Democracy". The Cambridge Analytica exposé reminded the world once again that data protection is vitally important for the health of our democracies. It thus protects not only the individual but also the core values and the common good. The GDPR has gone into effect on May 25 and is expected to change how companies and governments handle personal information. With growing user backlash after the recent privacy debacle, will the GDPR serve as a model for a new standard of data privacy around the world? Will the new data protection and privacy frameworks in Europe and elsewhere make a difference? Could they be effectively enforced? What is data protection beyond legislation? CPDP2019 will highlight data protection as a core element of a democratic society. We welcome cutting edge panels in all areas related to technology, privacy and data protection, but particularly invite proposals that fit the general conference theme.

We encourage panels that are well-balanced, multidisciplinary and geographically and gender diverse. More information about rules for panel composition and submission can be found here: http://www.cpdpconferences.org/callforpanels.html

Please note: chosen institutions, organisations or EU research projects will become CPDP2019 event partners. This implies that the event partner is able to finance all costs of the panel speakers (travel and lodging) in addition to paying a conference contribution of €1200. In return, the event partner’s logo will be visibly displayed on the CPDP website and the programme brochure. The partner will also have the option of putting a flyer or advertisement in the conference bag. All panelists will get free registration for the three conference days. Organizations such as nonprofits for whom the panel fee would cause financial hardship can get in touch after submitting their panel proposal.

Panel proposals should be submitted through the online form at: http://www.cpdpconferences.org/callforpanels.html#form Please fill in the form as completely as possible.
