The 12th edition of the international conference Computers, Privacy and Data Protection - CPDP2019 will take place from 30th January to the 1st February 2019 in Brussels, Belgium. The overarching theme of the 2019 edition is "Data Protection and Democracy".
The Cambridge Analytica scandal and the coming into force of the GDPR on May 25 put once again data protection at the centre of the scene and stressed its vital importance for the health of democracies, not only for the protection of individuals, but also of the core values and the common good.
CPDP2019 will highlight data protection as a core element of a democratic society and will address the following questions:
- 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?
Meet the e-SIDES experts
At CPDP 2019 you will have the chance to learn more about the e-SIDES project and our work in the field of Privacy-Preserving Technologies (PPTs).
Karolina La Fors (postdoc researcher within the e-SIDES project at the Centre for Law and Digital technologies (eLaw), Leiden University) and Michael Friedewald (senior researcher within the e-SIDES project and head of the ICT research unit at Fraunhofer ISI) will present the main outcomes of the project and invite researchers examining PPTs and Big Data analytics, and worrying about privacy and ethical issues, to share their opinions and contribute to the Responsible Research and Innovation Guidelines for Big Data.
