[Call for papers] European Privacy Law Scholars Conference (24-25 October 2024)

The Institute for Information Law of the University of Amsterdam is accepting abstracts for the European Privacy Law Scholars Conference, which will be hosted at the University of Amsterdam, 24-25 October 2024.  The deadline to submit the abstracts is 3 May 2024.

Following the format of PLSC in the United States, PLSC Europe is a conference for discussing work in progress. In the PLSC format, discussants, rather than authors, present and kick off a discussion on an assigned paper. There are no panels or presentations by the authors and everyone is a “participant”, offering their best questions and insights to stimulate discussion on fresh scholarship. There is no opportunity or obligation to publish connected to the conference.

The goal of the conference is to improve and provide support for in-progress scholarship on a wide variety of issues and topics that touch upon privacy in its broadest interpretation. Submissions from different (sub)disciplines, taking alternative angles to privacy and data governance more broadly, are welcomed.

This year’s edition of PLSC Europe is organised alongside the DTDM-Conference “City Data Governance”, which focuses on the impact of the new EU Data Act and the Data Governance Act at the municipality level (more information to be announced soon). As such, paper abstracts relating to the growing field of data law, including city data governance, are particularly welcomed.
