Symposium Consumer and Data Privacy: The Digital Revolution of Legal, Social and Economic Interaction
The overarching theme of this international symposium will be to identify the boundaries for the ethical and legal integration and application of technology in society. More particularly, the event will be about how to ensure consumer protection and data privacy in a hyper connected world.
Two perspectives for this theme will be discussed in three separate sessions. The first session on whether these changing interactions reflect the values of a just, efficient and ethical society. The second session on the advantages offered to consumers by technological solutions. The final session will take the form of a roundtable discussion, in which experts’ views on how to conciliate both perspectives will be exchanged.
Parallely, in the Law&Tech showroom, students and researchers will present their ongoing, innovative projects with demonstrable impact in Consumer Law.
It is this crosstalk between contrasting perspectives, the emerging ‘’hybrid’’ discipline of Law & Technology, that can pave the way for innovative solutions to the successful formulation, regulation and application of laws in this technologically-disrupted world.
This event, which will bring together experts from data science, ethics, economics and law, has the support of the Maastricht Law and Tech Lab and ECPC and is financed by the University Fund Limburg (SWOL), the Maastricht University Faculty of Law as well as the Maastricht Working on Europe Research Agenda.
Call for posters (call closed)
The symposium will hold a “Law&Tech showroom” providing an opportunity for selected students and researchers to present posters demonstrating and discussing their recent work related to consumer and data privacy both from a technological (“technology for law”) and legal (“law for technology”) perspective. The symposium will be attended by leading experts in consumer and data privacy, and will thus provide an opportunity for poster presenters to obtain high-quality feedback on their work, as well as making new contacts within the European consumer and data privacy research community.
The goal of the poster session is to foster collaboration and to build research ties with consumer and data privacy students and researchers across Europe.
