The 2015 Amsterdam Privacy Conference (APC 2015) brings together researchers, practitioners, policy makers and professionals in the field of privacy to share insights, exchange ideas and formulate, discuss and answer the challenging privacy questions that lie ahead of us. APC 2015 intends to be a lively forum to discuss privacy issues, held in the capital of the Netherlands, Amsterdam. APC 2015 is organised by the Amsterdam Platform for Privacy Research (APPR), a network of researchers of the University of Amsterdam, with active participants from diverse fields including philosophy, law, economics, computer science, medicine, media and communication studies and social sciences. APC 2015 is the follow-up of the highly successful conference APC 2012. The conference will take place on 23 to 26 October 2015 at the intimate venue of the Oudemanhuispoort in the heart of Amsterdam, the Netherlands. We will include plenary sessions, parallel sessions, and panel discussions with invited speakers, as well as presentations from respondents to this call for papers. The goal of the conference is to bring together people from academia, policy makers, journalists, and practitioners to promote active discussion on timely topics, to foster an active debate on privacy issues between participants from various backgrounds and perspectives.
