It is announced that the Latin American edition of the Computers, Privacy and Data Protection (CPDP) conference will be held at Fundação Getulio Vargas, in Rio de Janeiro, from the 23rd to 25th of June 2020.

The first edition of CPDP LatAm will be dedicated to Data Protection in Latin America: Democracy, Innovation and Regulation. See

The event will have a tripartite structure, combining the Latin American editions of CPDP, the MyData  conference, and the Privacy Law Scholars Conference (PLSC), serving as a platform to stimulate discussion, raise awareness and elaborate solutions regarding the most pressing data protection issues for Latin America.

The conference programme will be composed of panels exploring themes suggested by the conference participants and selected by our Multistakeholder Advisory Board, and discussing papers selected by the our Scientific Committee (see, below, our Call for Papers, Call for Panels, and Team). The first day will be dedicated to multistakeholder debates. The second day will include the first MyData Latin American Meeting and will be dedicated to analyzing innovative approaches and technologies that facilitate data protection. The third day will be dedicated to the first Latin American Privacy Law Scholars Conference.

As a side event, CPDP LatAm will also include the first BRICS Data Protection Summit, on 23 June

IMPORTANT: travel grants will be available for Latin American participants. All those in need of travel support are invited to specify it in the session or paper submission forms.
