Privacy Camp 2017: Call for submissions

Join us for the 5th annual Privacy Camp! Held every January just before the start of the CPDP conference, the camp brings together civil society, policy-makers and academia to discuss existing and looming problems for human rights in the digital environment. As every year, the event is co-organised by EDRi, Privacy Salon, USL-B and VUB-LSTS.

When: 24 January 2017, 9am – 5.30pm
Where: Université Saint-Louis, 119 rue du Marais, 1000 Brussels, Rooms 2200 and 2300


Who controls (your) data, who controls the machines? These questions are at the very center of the debates surrounding the pending adoption of important EU-wide legislation, such as the review of the ePrivacy Directive, the smart borders package, the draft Regulation on dual-use goods and the latest filtering proposals in the draft copyright Directive.

We invite you to propose a panel for one of these two tracks:

Track 01 controlling data
Topics: #metadata #onlinetracking #export #surveillance #accountability #UploadFilters

Track 02 controlling machines
Topics: #IoT #InternetOfThings #algorithms #wearables #sharingeconomy #AI

Some things to keep in mind when submitting your proposal:

  • indicate a clear objective for your session: what would be a good outcome for you?
  • indicate other speakers that could participate in your panel (and invite them)
  • make it as participative as possible, think about how to include the audience as much as possible
  • send us a max 500 word description of your session.

How to submit:
1. Send your proposal to Imge: imge.ozcan (at) before 23 November 2016.
2. After the deadline, we will review your submission and let you know by 6 December 2016.
3. The draft programme is scheduled to be announced in the first week of January 2017.

Please note that it is possible that we suggest to merge proposals if they are very similar.
