• Computers, Privacy & Data Protection 2018: THE INTERNET OF BODIES

    Event date: 
    Wednesday, 24 January, 2018 to Friday, 26 January, 2018

    CPDP offers the cutting edge in legal, regulatory, academic and technological development in privacy and data protection. Striving for diversity and balance, CPDP gathers academics, lawyers, practitioners, policy-makers, computer scientists and civil society from all over the world to exchange ideas and discuss the latest emerging issues and trends. This unique multidisciplinary formula has served to make CPDP one of the leading data protection and privacy conferences in Europe and around the world.

    As data collection increasingly focuses on the physical body and bodies are increasingly connected, digitised and informatised; CPDP2018 adopts the “Internet of Bodies” as its overarching theme to pave the way for a timely and thorough discussion over a broad range of ethical, legal and policy issues related to new technologies. CPDP2018 will stage more than 80 panels addressing current debates in the area of information technology, privacy and data protection. The preliminary programme for CPDP2018 has been released and the line-up contains excellent panels. Session topics range from the implementation of the GDPR, wearables, IoT, blockchain, border control to data breaches, privacy and security by design, health data, algorithmic accountability and much more.

    CPDP is also an extraordinary networking opportunity to mix and mingle with the privacy and data protection community.

  • Joint Conference on Data Science 2018

    Event date: 
    Tuesday, 22 May, 2018 to Wednesday, 23 May, 2018

    The Joint Conference on Data Science 2018 (JCDS18) is organised on the 22nd -23rd May 2018 in Edinburgh.
    The aim of the event is to bring together academics, policy-makers, and business people passionate about the emergent field of data science as a force for strategic transformation in an academic and professional context. 

    Essentially, the conference will focus on two tightly connected but distinct subject areas: 
    • Establishing the profession of a Data Scientist is the consequent conclusion from the present situation and JCDS18 will have a focus on the acquisition of skills and competences that individuals need in the new data science era, and how best to address the growing demand from organisations for individuals at all levels to be suitably equipped to thrive in the digitised economy. The challenge is that both work and the research environment are transforming into interdisciplinary environments, so data-related skillsets have to be harmonised in order to foster collaboration.  
    • Data Science is an interdisciplinary scientific and technical research and development field that amalgamates techniques and approaches for efficient and effective data management, integration, analysis, visualisation, and interaction with vast amounts of data, all as a critical prerequisite for a successful digitised economy. JCDS18 will therefore have a focus on the demonstration, presentation and discussion of innovative research and development results from related topics around machine learning, information visualisation, big data management, analysis, reproducibility, and ethics. 

    The Event Committee invites professionals in submitting workshop, tutorial and demo proposals and scientific papers. Find further information here
