CPDP 2011 Conference

The annual Conference
Computers, Privacy & Data Protection CPDP 2011
aims to create a bridge between
policy makers, academics, practitioners and activists

CPDP 2011 – Computers, Privacy and Data Protection is a three-day conference organised by academics from all over Europe, which has the ambition of becoming Europe’s most important forum for academics, practitioners, policymakers and activists.

CPDP 2011 is a place where these people can meet, exchange ideas and discuss emerging issues of information technology, privacy, data protection and law.

CPDP 2011 will be continuing the tradition of strict timekeeping by our roving bell-ringer bringing each session to a close, no matter which distinguished person is speaking.

CPDP has grown steadily over the last 4 years. It has the most ambitious agenda so far with 12 panels, a pre-conference, a philosophical reading panel and a PhD-evening. In addition the 2011 edition includes 2 one-day events on ‘eHealth’ and surveillance and law enforcement, and a round table on body scanners. In total more than 150 speakers will contribute.

The conference takes place the same week as the 4th annual European Privacy Day (Friday 28th January 2011), which will see the organisation of a series of events around Brussels with the participation of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel. Furthermore CPDP is organising a range of side-events, which involve members of the CPDP Scientific Committee.

Pecha Kucha Evening, Privacy Party, Political debates will be the social events around CPDP 2011.

CPDP is organised by the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, the Université de Namur, the Universiteit van Tilburg, the Institut National de Recherche en Informatique et en Automatique and the Fraunhofer Institut für System und Innovationsforschung.
