CPDP LatAm 2023 is hosted by the Center for Technology and Society at FGV Law School, in Rio de Janeiro, on 19 and 20 July 2023. CPDP LatAm is the Latin American edition of Computers, Privacy and Data Protection (CPDP) Conference – an international distinguished event that has been happening for over 15 years in Brussels, Belgium. The third edition of CPDP LatAm will be dedicated to “Data Protection, Cooperation, and Innovation in Latin America”. The CPDP LatAm programme will have a whole track dedicated to MyData Latin America, in which innovative data protection approaches and concepts will be explored.
This year, CPDP LatAm combines the Latin American edition of the Computers, Privacy and Data Protection (CPDP) conference, the MyData LatAm conference, and the Privacy Law Scholars Conference LatAm (PLSC LatAm).
The CPDP LatAm Call for Papers 2023 focus on Data Protection, Cooperation, and Innovation in Latin America. Contributions from all disciplines related to the conference theme are welcome, and interdisciplinar papers are highly encouraged.
Submissions are welcomed in English, Portuguese and Spanish. This call for papers welcome authors willing to produce complete articles to be published in the official publications of CPDP LatAm. Their articles must be original and exclusively submited to this process – thus, without having been submitted to any other publications in advance. Non-accepted articles are free to be submited to other publications.
The CPDP LatAm Call for Papers 2023 will prioritise works related to Data Protection, Cooperation, and Innovation in Latin America, with a particular focus on:
Interdisciplinary analyses are highly encouraged. In case of doubt about the compatibility of a prospective submission with the theme of this call, please contact us.
Authors of the selected paper proposals will be invited to present their working papers for closed peer-feedback feedback during the the Latin American meeting of Privacy Law Scholars Conference (PLSC). PLSC LatAm will take place in August 2023. More details are upcoming.
After the peer-feedback, submissions in English that pass the peer-review process successfully will be published at the CPDP LatAm special issue of the International Review of Law, Computers & Technology journal, edited by Prof Luca Belli and Prof Nicolo Zingales. Submissions in Portuguese and Spanish that successfully complete the peer review process will be published in a CPDP LatAm special issue of Revista Brasileira de Direitos Fundamentais e Justiça [Brazilian Journal of Fundamental Rights and Justice] (Qualis A1), edited by Prof Laura Schertel Mendes, Prof Ingo Sarlet and Prof Ivar Hartmann.
Artciles selected for inclusion in the CPDP LatAm special issues will receive a total research award of 2500 Brazilian Reais per article. Authors of article propsals selected to enter the peer review process – independent of their number – will receive a free pass for CPDP LatAm 2023. Authors may choose to refuse to receive an award and devolve it to a charity.
The CPDP LatAm Scientific Committee will also assign the “Danilo Doneda Award” for the best interdisciplinary paper, consisting in a 2500 Brazilian Reais prize, and a 1250 Brazilian Reais prize to the two runners-up (in addition to the above-mentioned research awards).
Important: In compliance with anti-corruption rules, research awards cannot be paid to authors who are public servants.
