CPDP Latam 2021

Data Protection at a Time of Social Emergency: COVID-19, Democracy, Innovation and Regulation in Latin America

Call for rapid response papers

The CPDP committee has decided to reshape the CPDP LatAm Call for Papers around the pressing need to explore Data Protection at a Time of Social Emergency Times: Covid-19, Democracy, Innovation and Regulation in Latin America.

IMPORTANT NOTICE

Covid19 and CPDP LatAm

Due to the current Covid19 outbreak, the CPDP LatAm team has unanimously agreed to postpone CPDP LatAm until 2021.

The current scenario, resulting from the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic, is increasingly serious and unpredictable. We have been monitoring closely the evolution of the pandemic over the past weeks and our assessment is that the moment calls for the most responsible attitude.

In view of the scenario we face, we made the difficult decision to postpone CPDP Latam to next year, as we must prioritise the health and safety of CPDP Latam participants, staff, partners, our families and communities above everything else.

It is becoming increasingly obvious that, due to the pandemic, no event will be possible for at least six months. We are extremely sorry to postpone CPDP LatAm but we are glad we will only have to postpone it and it will still be possible to have a fantastic event in July 2021.

Over the first months of preparation of CPDP LatAm, we have built an incredible team and received truly great support by an ample range of stakeholders, and we want to make sure that all the efforts we are lavishing into this project will lead to the best possible outcome: an event and a platform for great debate and collaboration.

The moment calls for hard choices in the public interest and we are sure everyone will understand we must ALL cooperate and make every effort to reduce the speed at which the virus is currently spreading.

Should you have any queries, please contact us.

CPDP Latam is the Latin American platform to discuss privacy, data protection and technology. It includes the Latin American editions of the Computers, Privacy and Data Protection (CPDP) conference, the MyData conference, and Privacy Law Scholars Conference (PLSC).

The 1st Latin American edition of the CPDP conference will be held in July, 2021 in Rio de Janeiro, at Fundação Getulio Vargas. CPDP LatAm will be dedicated to Data Protection in Latin America: Democracy, Innovation and Regulation. The conference will be composed of panels exploring themes suggested by the participants and discussing papers previously submitted and selected by the Scientific Committee. The goal of CPDP is to serve as a platform to stimulate discussion, raise awareness and elaborate solutions regarding the most pressing data protection issues for Latin America.

The event will have a tripartite structure. The first day will be dedicated to multistakeholder debates. The second day will include the first MyData Latin American Meeting and will be dedicated to analyzing innovative approaches and technologies that facilitate data protection. The third day will be dedicated to the first Latin American Privacy Law Scholars Conference.

CPDP LatAm is a unique opportunity to bring together varied and complementary perspectives on data protection, understand its evolution and the explore the impact that data processing has on democracy, innovation and regulation in Latin America.

Article and panel submissions are closed due to event postponement (see notice above).

As a world-leading multidisciplinary conference CPDP offers the cutting edge in legal, regulatory, academic and technological development in privacy and data protection.
