Dear all,

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

Call for Papers CPDP2019 – Data Protection and Democracy

CPDP is an annual three-day conference devoted to privacy and data protection. The 12th edition of CPDP will be held on 30th January to 1st February 2019 in Brussels. Whilst a number of speakers are specifically invited by the conference, several slots remain open to application through an annual call for papers. The CPDP2019 Call for Papers is addressed to all researchers who wish to present their papers at the next Computers, Privacy and Data Protection conference. 

The call is split into two different tracks. The first is dedicated to experienced researchers (i.e. from postdoctoral researchers on), while the second welcomes PhD students and other junior researchers. Contributions are welcome from all disciplines with perspectives on the themes of the conference. The dual-track structure of the CPDP2019 Call for Papers aims to meet the increasing interest of researchers – from all levels and from multiple disciplines – in CPDP and their expectations in terms of academic feedback and exchange. Please submit your contribution through the EasyChair conference system through https://easychair.org/account/signin.cgi?key=77866042.wQZqp2m5CMpczXz9 <https://easychair.org/account/signin.cgi?key=77866042.wQZqp2m5CMpczXz9> 

The overarching theme of the 2019 edition is “Data Protection and Democracy”. The entwinement between data analytics and democratic processes has been on the spotlight for the better part of the past two years. 

From political microtargeting through advertising platforms to voting systems’ security, from external influence over elections to ‘fake news’ and populism, both privacy and data protection have been shown to be fundamental for a healthy democracy. The GDPR has applied since May 25 and is expected to change how companies and governments handle personal information. 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 papers in all areas related to technology, privacy, and data protection, but particularly invite submissions that fit the general conference theme. 
The CPDP Scientific Committee invites papers in the fields of law, social sciences, philosophy and computer sciences (as well as other relevant fields). Multidisciplinary papers are particularly welcome. In particular, this call aims to reach researchers whose works relate to new technologies, privacy and data protection. Selected researchers will have the valuable opportunity to present their papers in the conference academic sessions. The main theme highlighted this year is “Data Protection and Democracy”, but we welcome any original topics related to the general themes of the conference and especially encourage interdisciplinary submissions.
