This call for papers concerns the scientific track of the symposium.

The European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) had its 5th anniversary in full force in May 2023. Undebatable, it triggered a chain reaction with many other jurisdictions adapting their own regulations, which is often told as a success story. However, is it though? The original proposition was to improve compliance with data protection law in the EU by harmonization. In particular with other emerging regulations in mind (regulating data flows, artificial intelligence, and cybersecurity), was this overall goal achieved? Did other jurisdictions improve compliance to their privacy legislation? How did technology support or inhibit the uptake of good privacy practices?

The conference at large, but also the scientific track, therefore studies the following questions: what can we learn from more than 5 years of living the GDPR, what have other jurisdictions learned from the EU, and what can the EU learn from them? What can technology contribute?

We solicit papers that present original research addressing challenges related to data protection compliance with innovative technologies. In particular, we welcome multidisciplinary work that combines legal, technical, and societal expertise. We accept research and academic papers, as well as industry and practitioner papers with a solid scientific foundation.

Submitted papers will undergo a thorough peer review. All submissions will receive at least 3 reviews by our multidisciplinary programme committee. Top quality papers will be invited for presentation. Accepted papers will be published in the Springer conference proceedings and the Springer-Link Digital Library. They will also be indexed by leading Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases like Scopus, DBLP, ISI, Google Scholar, etc. Papers of particular merit will be recommended for a potential special issue in an international journal. There will also be a best paper award.

Authors presenting their accepted papers will receive a reduction on their registration fee. Moreover, participating as an academic offers a unique opportunity to engage with leading experts and high-ranked representatives from policy and business from all over the world that also attend the symposium.
