CPDP LatAm 2023

Call for panels

Data Protection, Cooperation, and Innovation in Latin America

This call focuses on debates organized by academic groups, research projects, think-tanks, civil society organizations, public authorities, intergovernmental organizations, corporations and other research organizations.

The CPDP LatAm 2023 edition focuses on Data Protection, Cooperation, and Innovation in Latin America. The event will serve as a platform to foster the discussion and elaboration of solutions regarding the issues raised by legislative productions, business and government practices, new concepts, recent events and much more. CPDP LatAm will include a track dedicated to the Latin American meeting of MyData, in which innovative approaches and data protection concepts will be explored.


It is important to note that the institutions, organizations or research projects that are chosen will be considered as partners of the CPDP LatAm 2023 event. This means that the partner of the event will be available to finance all costs of the panel’s speakers, in addition to paying a contribution fee for the organization of the conference in the amount of USD 150. In return, the partner will receive a series of benefits such as: brand recognition on the website; insertion of material in the conference package; and the complete registration of the panel participants at the conference (so the speakers of the session organized by the partner will receive a link for free registration for the three days). Non-profit organizations that are unable to afford the event fee may get in touch after submitting the panel’s proposal to request an exemption of the registration fee.
Speakers whose session proposals have already been accepted and who need funding should contact us until June 20, 2023.
