Call for Papers CPDP2019 – Data Protection and Democracy

Dear all,

The usual apology for cross-posting but this may be of interest to

some on the list.

Call for Papers CPDP2019 – Data Protection and Democracy

CPDP is an annual three-day conference devoted to privacy and data

protection. The 12th edition of CPDP will be held on 30th January to

1st February 2019 in Brussels. Whilst a number of speakers are

specifically invited by the conference, several slots remain open to

application through an annual call for papers. The CPDP2019 Call for

Papers ( is

addressed to all researchers who wish to present their papers at the

next Computers, Privacy and Data Protection conference.

The call is split into two different tracks. The first is dedicated to

experienced researchers (i.e. from postdoctoral researchers on), while

the second welcomes PhD students and other junior researchers.

Contributions are welcome from all disciplines with perspectives on

the themes of the conference. The dual-track structure of the CPDP2019

Call for Papers aims to meet the increasing interest of researchers –

from all levels and from multiple disciplines – in CPDP and their

expectations in terms of academic feedback and exchange. Please submit

your contribution through the EasyChair conference system through the

following link


The overarching theme of the 2019 edition is “Data Protection and

Democracy”. The entwinement between data analytics and democratic

processes has been on the spotlight for the better part of the past

two years.

From political microtargeting through advertising platforms to voting

systems’ security, from external influence over elections to ‘fake

news’ and populism, both privacy and data protection have been shown

to be fundamental for a healthy democracy. The GDPR has applied since

May 25 and is expected to change how companies and governments handle

personal information. Will the GDPR serve as a model for a new

standard of data privacy around the world? Will the new data

protection and privacy frameworks in Europe and elsewhere make a

difference? Could they be effectively enforced? What is data

protection beyond legislation? CPDP2019 will highlight data protection

as a core element of a democratic society.
We welcome cutting edge papers in all areas related to technology,

privacy, and data protection, but particularly invite submissions that

fit the general conference theme.


The CPDP Scientific Committee invites papers in the fields of law,

social sciences, philosophy and computer sciences (as well as other

relevant fields). Multidisciplinary papers are particularly welcome.

In particular, this call aims to reach researchers whose works relate

to new technologies, privacy and data protection. Selected researchers

will have the valuable opportunity to present their papers in the

conference academic sessions. The main theme highlighted this year is

“Data Protection and Democracy”, but we welcome any original topics

related to the general themes of the conference and especially

encourage interdisciplinary submissions.

Papers accepted for presentation at the conference will go through a

second round of reviews for inclusion in the conference book.
