Subject: Call for Panels – Computers, Privacy and Data Protection (CPDP) 2018

Dear all,

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

Call for Panels CPDP2018 – The Internet of Bodies

This call for panels is aimed at academic consortia, research projects, think
tanks and other research organisations. (Another call, to individuals for
academic research papers, will go out towards the end of May 2017)

The overarching theme of the 2018 edition is the “Internet of Bodies”.
Data collection increasingly focuses on the physical body. Bodies are
increasingly connected, digitized and informatized. In turn, the data
extracted is reassembled in ways that give rise to significant questions –
challenging fundamental assumptions about where the corporeal ends and the
informational begins. Biometrics, genetic data processing and the quantified
self are only some of the trends and technologies reaching into the depths of
our bodies. Emerging technologies such as human enhancement, neural implants
and brain wave technology look likely to soon become a daily reality. We
welcome cutting edge panels in all areas related to technology, privacy and
data protection, but particularly invite proposals that fit the general
conference theme.

We encourage panels that are well-balanced, multidisciplinary and
geographically and gender diverse. More information about rules for panel
composition and submission can be found
<> here.

Please note: chosen institutions, organisations or EU research projects will
become CPDP 2018 event partners. This implies that the event partner is able
to finance all costs of the panel speakers (travel and lodging) in addition to
paying a conference contribution of €1200. In return, the event partner’s
logo will be visibly displayed on the CPDP website and the programme brochure.
The partner will also have the option of putting a flyer or advertisement in
the conference bag. All panelists will get free registration for the three
conference days.

Panel proposals should be submitted through the online form at:
<> Please fill in the form as
completely as possible.
