Privacy Camp will take place on 29 January 2019 in Brussels, Belgium, just before the start of the CPDP conference. Privacy Camp brings together civil society, policy-makers and academia to discuss existing and looming problems for human rights in the digital environment.
We welcome panel proposals relating to the broad theme of platforms. Besides classic panel proposals we are also seeking short contributions for our workshop “Situating Platforms: User Narratives”.
1. Panel proposals
We are particularly interested in panel proposals on the following topics: platform economy and labour; algorithmic bias; democratic participation and social networks.
Indicate a clear objective for your session, i.e. what would be a good outcome for you?
Indicate other speakers that could participate in your panel (and let us know which speaker has already confirmed, at least in principle, to participate).
Make it as participative as possible, think about how to include the audience and diverse actors. Note that the average panel length is 75 minutes.
Send us a description of no more than 400 words.
2. “Situating Platforms: User Narratives” submissions
In an effort to discuss situated contexts with regard to platforms, we will have a session on lived practices and user narratives. Individuals, civil society groups or community associations are welcome to contribute in the format of a short talk or show & tell demonstration. Details and the online submission form are here: [[link to submission form coming soon!]]
The deadline for all submissions is 18 November. After the deadline, we will review your submission and let you know by the end of November whether your proposal can be included in the programme. It is possible that we suggest merging panel proposals if they are very similar.
Please send your proposal via email to privacycamp(at)edri.org!
If you have questions, please contact Kirsten at kirsten.fiedler(at)edri(dot)org or Imge at imge.ozcan(at)vub(dot)be.
