In 2017 the European Union Agency for Network and Information Security (ENISA) and the Law Faculty of the University of Vienna, Arbeitsgruppe Rechtsinformatik, organise this year’s edition of the Annual Privacy Forum (hereinafter APF2017) to be held in Vienna, Austria on June 7-8, 2017. The organisers 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. Multidisciplinary papers are particularly welcome, making explicit how the presented work can contribute to bridging the gap between research and policy.
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. 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.
Submissions must be written in English and, need to comply with the Springer LNCS style guide. Authors must submit their papers by the deadline and follow the requirements stated on the conference web site. Papers will be published in the proceedings of the conference with a publishing house soon to be selected and announced.
The deadline for paper submissions is on March 31, 2017.
