CPDP2018 Call for Papers
Call for Papers CPDP2018 – The Internet of Bodies. This call is
addressed to all researchers who wish to present their papers at the
next Computers, Privacy and Data Protection conference.	

 CPDP Conferences 10th anniversary

 *CALL FOR PAPERS 2018 – The Internet of Bodies*

CPDP is an annual three-day conference devoted to privacy and data
protection. The 11th edition of CPDP will be held on 24-26 January 2018
in Brussels. Whilst a number of speakers are specifically invited by the
conference, several slots remain open to application through an annual
call for papers. The CPDP2018 Call for Papers is addressed to all
researchers who wish to present their papers at the next Computers,
Privacy and Data Protection conference.

The call is split into two different tracks. The first is dedicated to
experienced researchers (i.e. from postdoctoral researchers on), while
the second welcomes PhD students and other junior researchers.
Contributions are welcome from all disciplines with perspectives on the
themes of the conference. The dual-track structure of the CPDP2018 Call
for Papers aims to meet the increasing interest of researchers – from
all levels and from multiple disciplines – in CPDP and their
expectations in terms of academic feedback and exchange. Please submit
your contribution through the EasyChair conference system through the
following link:

The overarching theme of the 2018 edition is the “Internet of Bodies”.
Data collection increasingly focuses on the physical body. Bodies are
increasingly connected, digitized and informatized. In turn, the data
extracted is reassembled in ways that give rise to significant questions
– challenging fundamental assumptions about where the corporeal ends and
the informational begins. Biometrics, genetic data processing and the
quantified self are only some of the trends and technologies reaching
into the depths of our bodies. Emerging technologies such as human
enhancement, neural implants and brain wave technology look likely to
soon become a daily reality.

The CPDP Scientific Committee invites papers in the fields of law,
social sciences, philosophy and computer sciences (as well as other
relevant fields). Multidisciplinary papers are particularly welcome. In
particular, this call aims to reach researchers whose works relate to
new technologies, privacy and data protection. Selected researchers will
have the valuable opportunity to present their papers in the conference
academic sessions. The main theme highlighted this year is “The Internet
of Bodies”, but we welcome any original topics related to the general
themes of the conference and especially encourage technology-focused and
interdisciplinary submissions.

In case of doubt regarding the suitability of a contribution for the
conference, please contact Lorenzo Dalla Corte
<mailto:lorenzo.dallacorte at>.

 *Deadline for submissions: Friday 29 September 2017 (23:59 CET).
Notification to authors: Friday 1 December 2017.*
 Papers accepted for presentation at the conference will go through a
second round of reviews for inclusion in the conference book (see below).
 * *

Authors responding to this Call for Papers are asked to submit a full
paper via a dedicated webpage on the EasyChair system, together with a
short abstract and up to 5 keywords. Authors should select the track for
which they are applying in EasyChair: either CPDP2018 Experienced
Researchers or CPDP2018 Junior Researchers.

Papers should be between 6000 and 8000 words in length, excluding
footnotes and bibliography. Authors must make use of the OSCOLA (4th
ed.) referencing style. The text of the paper should not include the
name of the author(s) and all self-references should be deleted.
Submissions not meeting these criteria risk rejection without
consideration of quality.

Contributions and identifying information should be submitted through
the EasyChair conference system.

Papers will be selected on the basis of their quality. All submitted
papers will be peer reviewed by members of the CPDP2018 Scientific
Committee (and other independent reviewers where necessary) and will be
commented upon by distinguished scholars. Authors of accepted papers
must guarantee that their papers will be presented at the conference: at
least one author of each accepted paper is required to register for the
conference and to present the paper. Accepted papers will be considered
for publication in the conference book published by Springer.

Selected authors will receive free entrance for the duration of the
conference. Funding for travel expenses may be available for PhD
Candidates who cannot cover their own costs. If you require funding,
please get in touch.

areas, interested researchers are invited to visit the
