Computers, Privacy & Data Protection 2019: Data Protection and Democracy

The annual Computers, Privacy and Data Protection (CPDP) conference will take place between 30 January - 1 February at Les Halles de Schaerbeek and Area42 in Brussels. The CPDP conference offers the cutting edge in legal, regulatory, academic and technological development in privacy and data protection. The four day event gathers together 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. As in previous years, CPDP2019 offers a compelling and diverse line-up on speakers and panels, helping to make it one of the leading data protection conferences in Europe and around the world.

CDPD2019 adopts “Data Protection & Democracy” as its overarching theme, paving the way for a timely and thorough discussion over a broad range of ethical, legal and policy issues related to new technologies and data analytics. The conference will offer more than 80 panels addressing current debates in the area of information technology, privacy, and data protection.

The preliminary programme for CPDP2019 has been released and the line-up contains excellent panels. Session topics range from blockchain and cross-border access to e-evidence, from big data in healthcare to data protection impact assessments, collective redress, privacy by design, data and elections, predictive policing and much more. CPDP is also an extraordinary networking opportunity to mix and mingle with the privacy and data protection community.
