Description:

CPDP offers the cutting edge in legal, regulatory, academic and technological development in privacy and data protection. Striving for diversity and balance, CPDP gathers academics, lawyers, practitioners, policy-makers, computer scientists and civil society from all over the world to exchange ideas and discuss the latest emerging issues and trends. This unique multidisciplinary formula has served to make CPDP one of the leading data protection and privacy conferences in Europe and around the world. As data collection increasingly focuses on the physical body and bodies are increasingly connected, digitised and informatised; CPDP2018 adopts the “Internet of Bodies” as its overarching theme to pave the way for a timely and thorough discussion over a broad range of ethical, legal and policy issues related to new technologies.

CPDP2018 will stage more than 70 panels addressing current debates in the area of information technology, privacy and data protection. Already lined-up for the programme are panels on the implementation of the GDPR, wearables, IoT, blockchain, border control, data breaches, privacy and security by design, health data, neural prosthetics, algorithmic accountability and much more. CPDP is also an extraordinary networking opportunity to mix and mingle with the privacy and data protection community.
