CPDP LatAm 2023

Welcome to CPDP LatAm

Welcome to CPDP LatAm! On July 17 and 18 of 2024, our conference will be dedicated to the theme “Data Governance: From Latin America to the G20“. Stay tuned as we will soon be announcing the calls for papers and panels. Join us to contribute and engage in discussions about crucial issues surrounding data governance in Latin America and its connection to the G20.

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 event has a tripartite structure. The first day is dedicated to multistakeholder debates. The second day includes the second MyData Latin American Meeting and is dedicated to analyzing innovative approaches and technologies that facilitate data protection. The third day is 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.

The CPDP LatAm community expresses its deep regret for the death of Professor Danilo Doneda this Sunday, Dec. 04, 2022.

Danilo was one of the founders of CPDP LatAm and leaves many colleagues, friends, students and companions, all saddened and honoured for having shared his immense generosity of spirit.

Danilo marked the trajectory of privacy and data protection in Brazil and Latin America, but also the lives of all the people who had the pleasure of working alongside him, learning under his guidance, laughing, and enjoying life with him.

He leaves a rich legacy for the field of data protection and will remain a fundamental pillar of CPDP LatAm. Danilo’s spirit will continue to be alive and carried forward by all of us.

Thank you, Danilo
