This call for panels is aimed at academic consortia, research projects, think tanks and other research organisations. (Another call, to individuals for academic research papers, will go out towards the end of May 2017)
The overarching theme of the 2018 edition is the “Internet of Bodies”. Data collection increasingly focuses on the physical body. Bodies are increasingly connected, digitized and informatized. In turn, the data extracted is reassembled in ways that give rise to significant questions – challenging fundamental assumptions about where the corporeal ends and the informational begins. Biometrics, genetic data processing and the quantified self are only some of the trends and technologies reaching into the depths of our bodies. Emerging technologies such as human enhancement, neural implants and brain wave technology look likely to soon become a daily reality. We welcome cutting edge panels in all areas related to technology, privacy and data protection, but particularly invite proposals that fit the general conference theme.
We encourage panels that are well-balanced, multidisciplinary and geographically and gender diverse. More information about rules for panel composition and submission can be found here.
Please note: chosen institutions, organisations or EU research projects will become CPDP 2018 event partners. This implies that the event partner is able to finance all costs of the panel speakers (travel and lodging) in addition to paying a conference contribution of €1200. In return, the event partner’s logo will be visibly displayed on the CPDP website and the programme brochure. The partner will also have the option of putting a flyer or advertisement in the conference bag. All panelists will get free registration for the three conference days.
Panel proposals should be submitted through the online form below. Please fill in the form as completely as possible.
