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 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.
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.
