or the protection of personal data. The paper may de- scribe a fundamental research result, a technical innovation or provide a state of the
art of a privacy related area. It must be the result of work carried out, at least in part, in a research lab in the Euro- pean Union and must be
published in the two years preceding the opening of the competition.
