Call for Panels CPDP2022

CPDP is closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and we will follow recommendations concerning travel and public events. At this time, we are continuing preparations for CPDP2022 to take place in Brussels on January 26-28 2022. However, we will review this on an ongoing basis as well as engaging in contingency planning. We will update you on any decisions promptly.

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 in June 2021).

We welcome cutting edge panels in all areas related to technology, privacy and data protection.

We encourage panels that are well-balanced, multidisciplinary, geographically and gender diverse. We also welcome different types of sessions such as debates, roundtables, workshops and other non-conventional formats. More information about rules for panel composition and submission can be found here.

If you have an innovative idea for the set-up of a panel or workshop or have any questions regarding potential panel topics, please contact the organisers at

Please note

Chosen institutions, organisations or EU research projects will become CPDP2022 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 €1300. In return, the event partner will be granted a number of benefits such as logo recognition, conference bag insert and full conference registration for the panelists.

As part of our contingency planning, digital partnership options will be available with a set of benefits adapted to the virtual conference setting. Please contact us at for more information.

Organizations such as nonprofits for whom the panel fee would cause financial hardship can get in touch after submitting their panel proposal.
