The Computers, Privacy and Data Protection (CPDP) conference is proud to announce its 6th edition to be held on 23-25 January 2013 in Brussels, Belgium.

Every year in Brussels, the CPDP gathers academics, lawyers, practitioners, policy-makers, computer scientists, consultants and civil society from all over the world and with various backgrounds to exchange ideas and discuss the latest emerging issues in information technology, privacy, data protection, law and social sciences. CPDP has been growing progressively since its inception in terms of speakers, participants and panels, attracting more than 650 participants to its many panels held over three consecutive days.

The ambitions for CPDP 2013 are higher than ever. CPDP will stage more than 40 panels and workshops as well as multiple side events (public debates, a Pecha Kucha night and an art exhibition about privacy and surveillance). CPDP will enjoy numerous valuable contributions, among which Francoise LE BAIL (European Commission, Director General DG Justice), Peter HUSTINX (European Data Protection Supervisor), Sophie KWASNY (Council of Europe), Guy STESSENS (Council of the European Union), Melina VIOLARI (Facebook), Jean-Christophe LE TOQUIN (Microsoft), as well as several Members of the European Parliament, representatives of the European Commission, ENISA, FRONTEX, Data Protection Authorities, academia and private sector and several leading advocates from both EU and US.

CPDP panels will focus on key issues such as cloud computing, law enforcement use of data, privacy by design, binding corporate rules, surveillance and cyberwar. Furthermore, as the year of 2012 was marked by the review of the European data protection framework, several sessions as well as a privacy-camp will be devoted to this theme. In addition, there will be a philosophers’ reading panel on ‘internet freedom, copyright and privacy’, and several workshops. CPDP also pays particular attention to high-level and innovative research of PhD Students and outstanding junior researchers by organizing specific sessions completely devoted to their presentations.

Whether you will participate in the Conference as a supporter, partner or attendee, CPDP2013 welcomes you to join the event while contributing to emerging privacy and data protection issues.
