Annual Privacy Forum 2019: Call for papers

The ENISA Annual Privacy Forum (APF) 2019 will be held on 13-14 June 2019 in Rome (Italy) in co-operation with the University of Rome Tor Vergata and LUISS University.

The APF, already in its seventh edition, seeks to contribute to the implementation of information security in the area of privacy and personal data protection. The APF is set against the EU legislative background that mainly, but not exclusively, comprises the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the draft ePrivacy Regulation (ePR). The APF sets the stage for discussions of research proposals, solutions, models, applications and policies. In the last few years, the APF has also developed a deeper industry footprint, to complement its original research and policy orientation.

The APF is inviting papers presenting original work on the themes of data protection and privacy and their repercussions on technology, business, government, law, society, policy and law enforcement. A multi-disciplinary approach is expected and encouraged to contribute to bridging the gap across disciplines and propose new models and interpretations. The APF seeks contributions from policy makers and implementers, Data Protection Authorities, industry, research, consultants, NGOs and the civil society, as it aims at broad stakeholders’ participation that stimulate interaction and exchange of opinion.

To promote participation of young researchers, the submission of papers by students is particularly welcome. These papers will be treated as thoroughly as full papers, but can be shorter and reflect novel thinking that might not have been fully elaborated just yet.

In addition to student papers, short papers are equally invited, as this call is open to sketchy ideas, opinion or a call for collaboration.

The deadline for submissions is 11 January 2019.
