IT Law Institute Sponsors 11th Annual CPDP Conference

The 11th international Conference for Computers, Privacy & Data Protection (CPDP) will be held in Brussels from the 24th to the 26th of January 2018. The IT Law institute is proud to be a sponsor of this year’s CPDP Conference.

Head of the IT Law Institute, Professor Leyla Keser, will chair the Wednesday panel discussion on Blockchain in Intellectual Property and Data Protection: Promises and Challenges. The panel will cover topics like how to preserve trust in “smart contracts” and how Blockchain can be an effective solution in data protection law.

This year’s conference theme is The Internet of Bodies as more and more data collection focuses on the physical body by being increasingly connected and digitized. This raises a number of privacy and data protection questions that the 1000 attendees from 47 countries are eager to discuss. For more information on the conference you can visit their main page here.
