PLSC-Europe 2018 Call for Papers

PLSC-Europe 2018 will be held in Brussels on Saturday 27 January 2018,
right after CPDP2018 (http://www.cpdpconferences.org). CPDP – Computers,
Privacy & Data Protection conference – is an annual gathering of academics,
lawyers, practitioners, policy-makers, industry, and civil society from all
over the world. Its 11th edition, “The Internet of Bodies”, will take place
from Wednesday 24 January to Friday 26 January 2018. PLSC-Europe will
follow on Saturday 27 January 2018.

Based on the popular Privacy Law Scholars Conference (PLSC) event in the
United States, PLSC-Europe is dedicated to bringing together privacy law
scholars, practitioners, and privacy scholars from other disciplines from
across Europe and beyond to discuss current issues. PLSC-Europe aims at
fostering greater connections between academia and practice (industry,
legal, advocacy, and government), and at bringing together law scholars
with academics and professionals from other disciplines (e.g. economics,
philosophy, political science, computer science). The first PLSC-Europe was
held in October 2015 in conjunction with the Amsterdam Privacy Conference,
and the second one in May 2017, in conjunction with TILTing Perspectives
2017. From 2017 onwards, PLSC-Europe became a regular event co-organized by
the University of Amsterdam (IvIR), Tilburg University (TILT), and the Free
University Brussels (LSTS/Privacy Salon), alternating between Amsterdam,
Tilburg, and Brussels. The third edition of PLSC-Europe will be held on 27
January 2018 in Brussels.

PLSC is a paper workshop. Papers are not available, and proceedings will
not be released. The papers discussed are works in progress, and so will
not be publicly released, nor publicized: the ideas presented by the
authors are often still developing, and need further incubation before
being finalised. In a PLSC paper workshop, a “commenter” leads a discussion
among participants on an author's paper. Authors are encouraged to listen
to the discussion, rather than steer it or participate actively to it.
There are no panels or keynotes at PLSC: the idea is to help the author by
giving feedback and advice on the paper. Workshops are informal and
friendly in nature.

*Call for abstracts – PLSC-Europe 2018*

We welcome the submission of abstracts on both pure and multidisciplinary
legal scholarship on privacy and data protection. Please submit your
abstract through the following link:

If your abstract gets accepted for the paper workshop, you will be required
to deliver a full draft before the conference, to allow participants to
read the paper in advance.

In writing your abstract, please indicate the literature in which your
paper will be situated. If your topic is entirely novel or
interdisciplinary, please indicate that as well. The abstract should
explain the contribution your work makes to the existing literature.

Furthermore, we will not accept papers that are subject to pre-publication
review, veto, or embargo, nor those where the sponsor controls the content
of the paper. We will therefore require a conflicts of interest statement.

Abstracts do not have strict formal requirements: they should contain a
synthetic exposition of your idea, its placement within the existing
literature, and a statement confirming the lack of conflict of interest.

For any inquiry or clarification, please contact Lorenzo at
Lorenzo.dallacorte at cpdpconferences.org
