Ever more systems of artificial intelligence – with apparent inescapability – are being established in ever more parts of our lives, cultures, and societies. They bring about justified concerns as well as governance efforts. In the EU, the upcoming AI Act stands out in this regard, aiming to introduce a common framework to govern artificial intelligence. As a first step, the increasing use of AI raises governance questions: for example, who should govern AI design and applications, or what may be governed by AI?

CPDP2024 puts accelerating complexity of AI at the centre stage, with the underlying question: Is AI governable?

The conference gathers a wealth of expertise in the fields of data protection and privacy, as well as politics and technology. Can experiences and existing work in the fields of data protection and privacy help us to understand and facilitate the governance of AI? To avoid making similar mistakes, how can we learn from known challenges and continuing struggles in implementing the GDPR?

How can co-operation between different supervisory or regulatory authorities and different technological, research and civic domains be established for the governance of AI in all its diverse facets? How does the meaning, shape and practice of governance change when it faces Artificial Intelligence/Complexity? Who is excluded or sidelined by the complexity of Artificial Intelligence and its governance, or lack thereof?

During the conference, we approach these questions critically from different perspectives and deliberate on what the future may bring for cohabitation with incredible intelligences in our digital societies. Such reflections require multi-disciplinary conversations on societal, legal, ethical, and technical dynamics and norms that underpin the development of new socio-technical systems and the rules that govern their use.

CPDP2022 Postponed: FAQ – A guide for Conference partners, Panel organisers, Liaisons and Attendees

1. Logistics

What are the current COVID-19 measures inBelgium?
The measures in Belgium are decided on the basis of a barometer, with three colour-coded phases: yellow, orange and red. Belgium is currently under code yellow which means that:
· For people who are vaccinated, or have been tested before departure, there are no further testing or quarantine-requirements upon arrival in Belgium
· The Covid Safe Ticket is no longer required to access the hospitality sector or events
· Wearing a face mask on public transport is mandatory, and is recommended in indoor, crowded areas

The CPDP team will continue to adhere to strict air quality requirements in indoor areas.We will continue to update this page regularly and continue to work with all partners to make sure CPDP is a Covid-safe conference.
Please keep a close eye on our FAQ page and consult the official Coronavirus barometer for Belgium here.

Where will CPDP2022 take place?
CPDP2022 will take place in Les Halles de Schaerbeek and Area42, our usual meeting places in Brussels, Belgium.
