CPDP 2009: Data Protection in A Profiled World?

Data protection and privacy increasingly face new challenges posed by technologies and policies as well as society and individual expectations. Identifying and addressing such issues is the main goal of the annual Computer, Privacy, Data Protection (CPDP) conference.

The CPDP Conference aims at bridging policymakers, academics, practitioners and activists to create the most appropriate forum of discussion on key challenges.

It combines informative panels with the latest agenda news from data protection stakeholders and panels with current topics of interests.

The main topic of interest on this year's CDPD Conference Data Protection in A Profiled World is 'profiling and automatic computing'. Other topics are: e-voting and data breaches, e-privacy regulations and surveillance, privacy by design and social networks as well as developments in the JHA area.
More than 60 speakers coming from national and international organisations and institutions will intervene on these topics or present annual sessions on the agendas of European and national institutions, US and Canada governments and law firms.

The CPDP has been conceptualised as follow:
_ 12 Panel sessions on Friday and Saturday (six recurrent panels and six thematic panels)
_ 1 Parallel reading panel for a pre-registered audience
_ 1 Pecha Kucha Night: Friday evening event

INEX Kick-Off Meeting 2008 PDF Print E-mail

On September 18, 2008 the FP7 project INEX held its official kick-off meeting. The kick-off was well attended, with researchers from most workpackages and representatives from Ericsson, Frontex and the European Commission. As the first project meeting, the discussion included both the technical aspects, such as the legal and financial side, as well as the more substantive issue of the research to be undertaken.

This meeting was important in giving the partners a chance to present their research aims, offering comments and insights on the work of others. This research encompasses theoretical as well as more technical aspects, dealing with: the political and ethical implications of security technologies, the ethical value assumptions implicit in the transnational legal dilemmas of European security practices; the current challenges with European policing practices; and classical/external issues in the traditional security field. The aim of the above research is to highlight specific areas of concern that will then be explored in relation to the Mediterranean and Eastern European areas. Along with academic institutions, Ericsson will be a partner in this project, providing technical expertise and acting as consultant to all workpackages. Finally, this meeting forged an important link with Frontex, with its representative adding much to the discussion on European border security. 

As an interdisciplinary project, INEX brings together experts in many different fields. This meeting was therefore essential for establishing dialogue and cross-fertilisation between the diverse areas of research and work. The kick-off set the tone for a project that will create important links between the public and private spheres, between academics and practitioners working on European security practices.

is an interdisciplinary project on the ethical implications of the logic of security in Europe. It is a research project funded by the European Union and gathers a team of 18 researchers from 10 academic and non-academic institutions in Europe. The project is organized around two axes: A thematic axis and a geopolitical axis.

Thematically, four questions will be covered: The ethical consequences of the proliferation of security technologies, the legal dilemmas that arise from transnational security arrangements, the ethical and value questions that stem from the shifting role of security professionals and the consequences of the changing role of foreign security policy in an era when the distinction between the external and internal borders grows less distinct.

On the geopolitical axis it will study and produce recommendations relative to two geographical theatres of high relevance for ethical issues of internal/external security: the Eastern European ‘neighbourhood’ including Belarus, Ukraine, Moldova and the Mediterranean ‘neighbourhood’ including Morocco, Algeria and Egypt.
