What are the privacy implications of new technologies? How should medical data be shared with proper regard for patients’ privacy? And why do privacy and accountability trump security in a democratic state? At the 2015 Amsterdam Privacy Conference (APC), scholars and experts from around the world will gather to discuss these and other privacy-related issues. The Conference, which is organised by the Amsterdam Platform for Privacy Research and hosted by the University of Amsterdam, will take place from 23 to 26 October.
The 2015 Amsterdam Privacy Conference, which follows on the highly successful APC 2012, will bring together leading experts in the field of privacy who will formulate, discuss and answer some of the challenging privacy questions currently facing society.

The conference will also see keynote speeches by, among others, Anita L. Allen, professor of Law and Philosophy at the University of Pennsylvania Law School, acclaimed sociologist and former senior advisor to the Carter administration Professor Amitai Etzioni, and Big Data visionary Viktor Mayer-Schönberger.
