Every year in Brussels, CPDP gathers policy makers, academics, computer scientists, consultants, practitioners and activists from all over the world to exchange ideas and discuss emerging issues in information technology, privacy, data protection and law. CPDP has been growing progressively since its inception in terms of speakers, participants and panels. Ambitions for CPDP 2014 are higher than ever, and we aim to stage more than 40 panels and workshops (with a stimulating mix of academics, practitioners, regulators and advocates), as well as multiple side events (such as open debates, Pecha-Kucha performances and artistic interventions). CPDP is a non profit platform originally founded in 2007 by research groups from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, the University of Namur and Tilburg University. The platform was joined by the Institut National de Recherche en Informatique et en Automatique and the Fraunhofer Institut für System und Innovationsforschung. For CPDP 2013, these conference partners have been joined by yet more outstanding institutions, including: TU Berlin, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, Max Planck Institute for Foreign and International Criminal Law, the University of Leiden, the University of Passau and the University of Amsterdam. In addition, CPDP2014 welcomes the KU Leuven as a new European partner and is also proud to welcome a number of prestigious American partners, including: Capital University, Berkeley, University of Main and Fordham University.
