PLSC-Europe 2020 (Tilburg)

Date: Time: 09:00 Location: LocHal, Tilburg

The 5th European Privacy Law Scholars Conference (PLSC Europe), organized by the Tilburg Institute for Law, Technology, & Society (TILT), will be held Thursday 09 April 2020, at the LocHal in Tilburg, the Netherlands.

Following the format of PLSC in the United States, PLSC Europe is a conference for discussing work in progress. There is no opportunity or obligation to publish connected to the conference. Our goal is simply to improve and provide support for in-progress scholarship. To do so, PLSC Europe assembles privacy law scholars as well as policy makers, practitioners and civil society experts from Europe and around the world to workshop and discuss papers. The conference is open to other than legal disciplines and values multi-disciplinary approaches.
The conference follows a format where a discussant, rather than the author, is assigned to kick off a discussion of the paper with the audience. We often pair junior scholars with senior colleagues in order to create mentorship opportunities. In the PLSC format, there are no panels or presentations by the authors. Instead, everyone is a “participant”, offering their best questions and insights to stimulate discussion on the draft scholarship.

The first PLSC-Europe was held in October 2015 in conjunction with the Amsterdam Privacy Conference, and the second one in May 2017, in conjunction with TILTing Perspectives 2017. From 2017 onwards, PLSC-Europe became a yearly event, alternating between the University of Amsterdam, Tilburg University, and Vrije Universiteit Brussel.
