In APF 2017 we invite papers presenting original work on the themes of data protection and privacy and their repercussions on technology business, government, law, society, policy and on law enforcement. An inter-disciplinary approach is high in demand to contribute to bridging the gap between research, business models and policy much like proposing new models and interpretations are.

APF2017 seeks contributions from policy makers and implementers, Data Protection Authorities, industry, consultants, NGOs and civil society as well as law enforcement representatives. Opinion and interpretation papers are expected to reflect the views of the author(s). Both research and opinion papers should deal with at least one of the following aspects:
◾Implementation aspects of "by design" and "by default" paradigms
◾Implementation and adoption of PETs in contemporary digital services
◾Modelling of data protection and privacy requirements, such as:

◾Machine readable representations and automatic evaluation of policies

◾Enabling transparency: technological and organizational challenges
◾Technical solutions for the enforcement and the implications of the subject’s right, e.g. right to erasure, access and correction.
◾Aspects of privacy impact and risk assessment
◾ Technical solutions for data portability
◾ Sustainable business models for privacy friendly online services
◾ Information and consent in online environments: practical solutions and implementations
◾ Privacy education, reliability and usability of PETs
◾ Trust services for the protection of personal data - privacy aware trust services (i.e. electronic certificates, signatures, etc.)
◾ Security measures for the protection of personal data
◾ Economics of privacy and personal data
◾ Legal, technical and organisational aspects of privacy and law enforcement
◾Ethical conditions to the applicable framework
