Computers, Privacy & Data Protection: Reloading Data Protection

Wednesday, 23 January, 2013 - 08:00 to Friday, 25 January, 2013 - 18:00
Les Halles
International Conference

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 has been growing progressively since its inception in terms of speakers, participants and panels. Ambitions for CPDP 2013 are higher than ever, as it will stage more than 40 panels and workshops (with a stimulating mix of academics, practitioners, regulators and advocates), as well as multiple side events (such as open debates, Pecha-Kucha performances and artistic interventions). CPDP will pay particular attention to high-level and innovative research, and four panels will be completely devoted to the presentations of outstanding junior and senior academics. 

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 independence 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 academic centres such as the Zentrum Technik und Gesellschaft der TU Berlin, the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam,  the Max Planck Institute for Foreign and International Criminal Law, as well as other institutes such as the Joint Research Centre and the Fundamental Rights Agency, etc. Sponsor money is used to organize the platform, to support some speakers and PhD students and to set up the Multidisciplinary Privacy Paper Award.
