International conference


The annual International Data Protection and Privacy Commissioners' conference gathers not only public officials from (inter)national and sub-national authorities, but also other experts in the field. It is a wider meeting than the European conference not only in the geographical sense, but also in that it brings together industry representatives and academics.

The international conference is an opportunity for data protection stakeholders in Europe to meet colleagues from Canada, Latin America, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Japan and other jurisdictions in the Asia-Pacific region. Matters of common interest and concern, challenges for the future, and how to work together and find a way forward are discussed.
