Call for Chapters

for the Conference book

The Computers, Privacy and Data Protection series publishes multidisciplinary peer-reviewed scientific manuscripts that are the result of papers that have been presented at the international Computers, Privacy and Data Protection conference, that takes place every year in Brussels. As a world-leading multidisciplinary conference, CPDP gathers, within an atmosphere of independence and mutual respect, academics, lawyers, practitioners, policy-makers, industry and civil society from all over the world, offering them an arena to exchange ideas and discuss the latest emerging issues and trends.

The book series published by Hart Publishing, provides cutting edge research on legal, regulatory, academic and technological development in privacy and data protection. The books, which have been published since 2009 with growing success, are comprised of academic research dealing with topics such as recent developments in privacy and data protection law, multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary insights in privacy and data protection, privacy by design, privacy enhancing technologies and emerging technologies such as conversational agents, machine-learning algorithms, internet of things and cloud computing. The book series discusses daring and prospective approaches and serves as an insightful resource for readers with an interest in computers, privacy and data protection.

The working title of this new volume is 'Privacy and Data Protection: Data Protection and Democracy'. Participants are invited to submit an academic contribution to the book that will also publish the best papers that were presented in the Academic paper track.

Academic contributions to the book should have minimum 5000 and maximum 12.000 words and must be submitted via Easychair. Please make sure to to anonymise the version you upload. Extended Deadline: 20 March 2019.

Our ambition is to have the twelfth book ready and available before the end of 2019 and thus before the next conference, which means that the review process will take place in the months of March and April, and that the manuscript will be finalised before the end of June.

All the proposed contributions will be submitted to a scientific peer review process coordinated by the editors of the volume. At least two peers will review each contribution and the editors will feed the comments back to the authors, to be followed by a rebuttal phase. The reviewers will also be asked to check if authors have respected the Chicago Reference Style (see point 6 below) and the quality of the English (see point 3 below).

Please, let us know as soon as possible if you intend to submit a contribution. This would help us plan the further work on this volume.


Call for Chapters

If you intend to propose a contribution as an author, there are a number of important issues we want to announce from the outset.
1. The total amount of royalties generated by the book will be transferred on a Privacy Salon-account and will be integrally used for the organization of the next CPDPconference.
2. Hart requires every author of a contribution to accept and sign the contributor form. Details about the procedure for submitting this form will be sent to the corresponding authors after review and acceptance of the papers.
3. Only chapters that adhere to academic standards will be accepted for the book.
4. Non-native English-speaking authors are requested to have their contributions reviewed and corrected by a native English speaker, prior to its submission. In order to make the costly and heavy process of language easier, we would highly appreciate that the authors themselves would submit contributions written in the best possible English. The peer review process will also evaluate the quality of the English language.
5. Contributions must be submitted in Word format (not Latex or PDF). Each contribution must use footnotes (not endnotes) numbered consecutively. Each contribution must also provide a Bibliography listing all the sources used by the authors. For the numbering, the decimal system should be used : i.e. for Chapter X each heading will be numbered X.1, X.2, X.3, etc., and the subheading X.1.1., X.1.2, X. 1.3, etc. and the subsubheading X.1.1.1., X.1.1.2, X.1.1.3. etc.
6. Contributions need to be anonymized for blind peer review
7. Authors must make use of the Chicago Manual of Style (http://www.chicagomanualofstyle.org/home.html
and http://www.chicagomanualofstyle.org/tools_citationguide.html), and more precisely the humanities style (notes N, and B bibliography) and not the author-date system.
