Submit your paper! Annual Privacy Forum 2019: Call for papers

The ENISA Annual Privacy Forum (APF) is a conference, organised yearly, on the conjuncture of information security and privacy that brings together contributions from policy, research and the industry.

Published on September 20, 2018

The APF 2019 will be held on 13-14 June 2019 in Rome, Italy, in co-operation with the University of Rome Tor Vergata and LUISS University.

Already in its seventh edition, the APF seeks to contribute to the implementation of information security in the area of privacy and personal data protection. The APF is set against the EU legislative background that mainly, but not exclusively, comprises the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the draft ePrivacy Regulation (ePR). The APF sets the stage for discussions of research proposals, solutions, models, applications and policies. In the last few years, the APF has also developed a deeper industry footprint, to complement its original research and policy orientation.

Papers presenting original work on the themes of data protection and privacy and their repercussions on information security technology, business, government, law, research, society and policy are hereby invited. A multi-disciplinary approach is expected and encouraged to contribute to bridging the gap across disciplines and propose new models and interpretations. The APF seeks contributions from policy makers and implementers, Data Protection Authorities, industry, research, consultants, NGOs and the civil society, as it aims at broad stakeholders’ participation that stimulate interaction and exchange of opinion.

To promote participation of young researchers, the submission of papers by students is particularly welcome. These papers will be treated as thoroughly as full papers, but can be shorter and reflect novel thinking that might not have been fully elaborated just yet.

In addition to student papers, short papers are equally invited, as this call is open to sketchy ideas, opinion or a call for collaboration.

Papers that pass reviewers’ scrutiny are likely to be included in the published proceedings, kindly supported by Springer (Lecture Notes in Computer Science series).

The deadline for submission is set to 11 January 2019.
