Annual Privacy Forum (APF) - 13 - 14 June 2018 - Barcelona, Spain (http://privacyforum.eu)

The recalibrated legal framework in the EU as manifested by the promulgation of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), is key in an effort to better control the processing of personal data. Additionally, the forthcoming Regulation on Privacy and Electronic Communications is expected to give new impetus to the way privacy is protected in electronic communications. Even the best legislative efforts cannot keep up to speed with the pace of innovative technology and business models that challenge the way personal data is processed and privacy is protected across the EU and beyond; therefore, examining what is at stake and where threats thereto originate from becomes of paramount importance.

In the light of those regulations, DG CONNECT, ENISA, the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC) and Telefonica are organizing Annual Privacy Forum (APF) 2018 in Barcelona, Spain.

Important dates

Submission of full papers:             30 March 2018

APF 2018 taking place on:             13 - 14 June 2018

In APF 2018, we invite papers presenting original work on the themes of data protection and privacy and their repercussions on technology business, government, law, society, policy and on law enforcement. An inter-disciplinary approach is high in demand to contribute to bridging the gap between research, business models and policy, much like proposing new models and interpretations are.

Submission can be made through Easychair at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=apf20180

APF 2018 seeks contributions from policy makers and implementers, Data Protection Authorities, industry, consultants, researchers, NGOs and as well as civil society. Opinion and interpretation papers are expected to reflect the views of the author(s). Submissions can be up to 8000 words long, excluding bibliography and appendices. Both research and opinion papers should deal with at least one of the following aspects:
    Implementation aspects:

    o Privacy "by design" and "by default" paradigms

    o Adoption of PETs in contemporary digital services

    o Technical solutions for data portability and procedural issues

    o Technical solutions for preventing online and mobile tracking

    o Technical solutions for the enforcement and the implications of the subject's right, e.g. right to erasure, access and correction

    o Information and consent in online environments: practical solutions and implementations

    Modelling of data protection and privacy requirements, such as:

    o Machine readable representations and automatic evaluation of policies

    o Enabling transparency: technological and organizational challenges
