CPDP is a non-profit platform originally founded in 2007 by research groups from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, the Université de Namur and Tilburg University, which has now grown significantly and incorporates a consortium of 21 conference partners.

CPDP offers the cutting edge in legal, regulatory, academic and technological development in privacy and data protection. In an atmosphere of independence and mutual respect, CPDP gathers academics, lawyers, practitioners, policy-makers, computer scientists and civil society from all over the world to exchange ideas and discuss the latest emerging issues and trends. This unique multidisciplinary formula has served to make CPDP one of the leading data protection and privacy conferences in Europe and around the world.

CPDP2014 has become truly global: it is co-organized by conference partners from Europe and the United States, and devotes panels to Latin-America and India. Moreover, CPDP is reaching out to the Asia-Pacific with speakers coming from all over the region.

The progressive growth of CPDP will culminate in an unprecedented 7th edition. A terrific programme will include more than 60 panels held over three consecutive days. The panels will focus on key issues that cover all current debates: The data protection reform in the European Union, PRISM, big data, cybercrime, data retention, cloud computing, enforcement by Data Protection Authorities, biometrics, e-health, privacy by design, and much, much more. In addition, there will be a day event on the ethical issues of data collection on minorities, and the use of technology to advance the status of Roma.

CPDP will offer valuable contributions from the leading names in the field, including key representatives from all the major European institutions - the European Commission, the European Parliament, the European Data Protection Supervisor, and the Council of Europe.

In addition to the well-known classic Pecha Kucha side event, there will be several public debates held in the evenings – both in Dutch and English.

CDP2014 will continue to pay particular attention to high-level and innovative research from PhD Students and outstanding junior researchers by organizing sessions completely devoted to their work. CPDP2014 will also remain home to several award ceremonies, such as the award for the best Multidisciplinary Privacy Paper and the EPIC International Champion of Freedom Award.

Whether you are involved in the Conference as a sponsor, supporter, partner or participant or not, CPDP2014 welcomes you to join the event and contribute to the debate on emerging privacy and data protection issues.
