October 2015 – Privacy Law Scholars Conference – Amsterdam

Monday, October 26, 2015
De Bazel Café & Conference Center
Vijzelstraat 32
1017 HL Amsterdam
The Netherlands

In October 2015, Berkeley Law and the University of Amsterdam’s Amsterdam Platform for Privacy Research (APPR) will hold the first Privacy Law Scholars Conference in Europe (PLSC-Amsterdam). PLSC is a paper workshop, with the purpose of improving the quality of privacy scholarship.

PLSC has an atypical format. At PLSC, workshops are led by a “commenter” (not the author).  The commenter introduces the paper briefly and then leads a discussion of among all the participants, much like an graduate-level academic seminar. The author is present, but participates primarily by listening and considering how others interpret the work.

PLSC-Amsterdam will have six concurrent tracks, and four paper workshop sessions, thus 24 papers will be workshopped at the event. The date to submit papers is now past. Accepted workshop drafts are due September 25, 2015.

PLSC-Amsterdam will be held concurrently with the Amsterdam Privacy Conference (APC), and the two events are in the same building, thus allowing participants to go to sessions associated with either event. One must register for APC in order to participate in PLSC-Amsterdam because APC is hosting the event.

Preliminary Schedule (final schedule with room assignments will be posted at APC)
