Workshop on Privacy, Transparency,
Sovereignty and Security

Co-organised by TRAPEZE and E-CORRIDOR Innovation Actions

Co-sponsored by ERCIM and Inria

Inria Mediterranean Campus, Sophia Antipolis, 27-28 April 2023




We are excited to announce one and a half-day collaborative workshop that will delve into the fascinating world of privacy research and technology, as well as exploring innovative applications of these concepts.

Hosted by Inria, co-sponsored by Inria and ERCIM - the European Research Consortium for Informatics and Mathematics, and co-organised by the European projects TRAPEZE and E-CORRIDOR, this workshop will bring together experts and enthusiasts in the fields of privacy, cybersecurity, and technology to explore new ideas, share insights, and collaborate on solutions that can benefit society.

The workshop will consist of presentations from leading researchers and practitioners, followed by interactive sessions where attendees will have the opportunity to share their own ideas and experiences. We will explore cutting-edge technologies and methods for protecting privacy, as well as novel applications of these technologies across various domains, such as e-government, telecoms, banking, and transportation. 

The workshop is designed to be highly interactive and collaborative, with plenty of opportunities for networking and knowledge sharing. Whether you are a researcher, practitioner, or enthusiast, this workshop is a great opportunity to learn from experts in the field, meet like-minded people, and explore new ideas in privacy and related technology.

The workshop will be held on 27-28 April at the Inria Mediterranean Campus in Sophia Antipolis, on the French Riviera. Participation is free, registration is required.  We encourage anyone with an interest in privacy, transparency, sovereignty and security to attend. We look forward to seeing you there! 

Online participation will be possible and the online participants will receive the access data by e-mail in good time before the workshop.

DPA and Data Protection Community Session: This two-hour session will bring together research and Data Protection Authorities (DPAs) as well as experts from the data protection community to foster synergies and collaboration. Selected privacy-enhancing results of the TRAPEZE project (consent management through a citizen-centric privacy dashboard; policy language and the concept of sticky consent policies) will be presented and discussed with leading experts and practitioners. The discussion will also look at the project results in light of the latest trends, challenges and opportunities facing DPAs and the data protection community. The session will also explore the role of DPAs in promoting data protection and privacy across different sectors and jurisdictions.
