Call For Papers

In APF 2017 we invite papers presenting original work on the themes of data protection and privacy and their repercussions on technology business, government, law, society, policy and on law enforcement. An inter-disciplinary approach is high in demand to contribute to bridging the gap between research, business models and policy much like proposing new models and interpretations are.

APF2017 seeks contributions from policy makers and implementers, Data Protection Authorities, industry, consultants, NGOs and civil society as well as law enforcement representatives. Opinion and interpretation papers are expected to reflect the views of the author(s). Both research and opinion papers should deal with at least one of the following aspects:
◾Implementation aspects of "by design" and "by default" paradigms
◾Implementation and adoption of PETs in contemporary digital services
◾Modelling of data protection and privacy requirements, such as:

◾Machine readable representations and automatic evaluation of policies

◾Enabling transparency: technological and organizational challenges
◾Technical solutions for the enforcement and the implications of the subject’s right, e.g. right to erasure, access and correction.
◾Aspects of privacy impact and risk assessment
◾ Technical solutions for data portability
◾ Sustainable business models for privacy friendly online services
◾ Information and consent in online environments: practical solutions and implementations
◾ Privacy education, reliability and usability of PETs
◾ Trust services for the protection of personal data - privacy aware trust services (i.e. electronic certificates, signatures, etc.)
◾ Security measures for the protection of personal data
◾ Economics of privacy and personal data
◾ Legal, technical and organisational aspects of privacy and law enforcement
◾Ethical conditions to the applicable framework
◾Procedural issues
◾Issues of transatlantic interest

Student Papers

In order to encourage participation of young researchers, the submission of papers by students is encouraged. These papers will be treated as thoroughly as full papers, but can be shorter (up to 4000 words) and reflect novel thinking that might not have been fully elaborated just yet.

Short Papers

In addition to student papers, short papers are invited as this call is open to anyone who has a sketch of an idea, opinion or a call for collaboration. Short papers should be up to 4000 words and should not overlap with work published elsewhere.

Review and Publication

Papers submitted will be thoroughly reviewed by the designated Programme Committee at a rate of 3 reviews or more per paper. Furthermore, papers will be published in the proceedings of the conference with a professional publisher.

Submissions of original work are invited; papers must not overlap substantially with work already published or simultaneously submitted to a journal or a proceedings bearing venue. Submissions can be up to 8000 words long, excluding bibliography and appendices. Shorter submissions are encouraged, as described elsewhere. Submissions must be drafted in English and they currently need to comply with the Springer LNCS style guide, which can be found at:

Authors must submit their papers according to conditions and within the deadline communicated on the conference web site. Conference Chairs and Springer Publishers are currently negotiating the conditions for acceptance in Lecture Notes in Computer Science.

Submission can be made through Easychair at
