Nordisk Retsinformatik konference 2018: Disruption & Databeskyttelse

Temaet vil vrere smarte teknologier og kunstig intelligens. Vi sætter fokus på disruption (af juriststanden!) og databeskyttelse. Vi deler dagene op. Formiddage er primrert til disruption, eftermiddage er hovedsageligt til databeskyttelse.

Om formiddagene inddrager vi de it-tekniske miljøer med oplreg om smarte teknologier og drøfter derefter, hvordan vores felt påvirkes. Vi vil her skabe opmærksomhed om, hvordan både den juridiske metode, lovgivningsteknikken, uddannelserne og juristemes hverdag påvirkes af disse nye teknologier – med andre ord smarte teknologiers disruption af både retsvidenskaben, universiteterne og det praktiske retsliv. Vi prøver således at vende tilbage til retsinformatikkens rødder.

Databeskyttelsesforordningen får virkning i 2018. Derfor skal den selvfälgelig med. Om eftermiddagene rettes blikket mod databeskyttelsesrettens regulering af de samme teknologiers håndtering af personoplysninger; smart horders, smart cities, wearables, sociale medier, smart metering mv.

Vel mødt 18-20 September i Danmark!

CEVIA | Call for Papers and Conference: The Responsible Consumer in the Digital Age, May 31 – Jun 1, 2018

The Responsible Consumer in the Digital Age – International and Nordic Perspectives on Consumer Financial Protection

Time : 31 May – 1 June 2018
Place: Nanna Berg Auditorium, 1st floor, room 9A-1-01, Njalsgade 76, DK-2300 Copenhagen S 

The conference, organized by Center for Enterprise Liability (CEVIA), aims to provide a forum where leading academics and practitioners, researchers, and enforcement officials from multiple jurisdictions join to present and discuss the most recent trends and challenges related to consumer financial protection in the digital age, as they stem from the latest normative developments and court cases.

The conference has a strong focus and emphasis on Nordic perspectives and solutions. Nordic markets have their particularities and Nordic countries adopt joint solutions, which are not sufficiently advertised to other jurisdictions. The conference panels and the ‘Nordic Round Table’ event will make these perspectives widely known and will facilitate dialogue and share of ideas between Nordic jurisdictions and the rest of the world.

GDPR – Annual conference of the Privacy & Identity Lab, Dec 7, 2017

The PI.lab conference 2017 takes the enforcement of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) as its starting point. The GDPR obliges organisations to rethink their privacy strategy. Data subjects can exercise new rights, controllers and processors have additional obligations. New challenges will arise, such as offering transparency in algorithms and being aware of ethical considerations. Digitisation of relations continues in almost all spheres of daily life, from smart cities to new opportunities for law enforcement agencies. These are challenges that require dedicated effort. They need critical reflection and debate. They need to be investigated on how they offer new opportunities as well. Opportunities that may be of benefit to organisations, that help creating business value. The conference will present and discuss results and new challenges, in keynotes and workshops.

When: 7 December 2017, 13.00 – 17:30 hrs
Where: Vergader- en conferentiecentrum ‘In de Driehoek’, Willemsplantsoen 1C, 3511 LA Utrecht

SubTech Conference 2018 | University of Tartu

The IT Law Programme at the University of Tartu will host the biannual SubTech Conference 2018. Every two years since 1990, the SubTech conference has brought together scholars and practitioners interested in the the impacts of technology on legal practice and education (both broadly defined). SubTech is unique among the ever-growing field of conferences and events at the intersection of law and technology not only for its relatively vintage origins, but also for its attention to the technology of law, as opposed to the law of technology. SubTech is informal and organized around participation; it is a multidisciplinary and collaborative forum for sharing best practices, finding new collaborators, and learning about the legal applications of emerging technologies.

Participation in SubTech is free and by invitation only; those interested in participating are invited to contact anette.aav@ut.ee with a CV and an expression of interest.

When: July 12-14, 2018
Where: Tallinn, Estonia

The XXXII Nordic Conference on Law and IT, Nov 13-15, 2017

The NRCCL (Norwegian Research Center for Computers and Law) is hosting the XXXII Nordic Conference on Law and IT. This year’s theme is “Data Sharing and the Data Economy: Aspirations and Legal Realities”.

When and where: November 13-15, 2017, Oslo, Norway.

The goal of the conference is to examine aspects of European regulatory policy that critically impact upon data sharing and data economy initiatives. In particular, the conference seeks to cast light on the extent to which these initiatives are supported by the European legal framework. This is an essential step along the path to improving, if necessary, the fit between the law on the one hand and the ideals of data sharing and data economy on the other.

Please note the pre-conference events on Monday 13 November, including a workshop for PhD students and guest lecture by Professor Radim Polcak.

IVA, Ingenjörsvetenskapsakademin, initierar projekt om Digitalisering för ökad konkurrenskraft

Sveriges konkurrenskraft ökar om vi kan ta tillvara digitaliseringen möjligheter. Förutsättningarna är goda. Men Sverige måste hantera digitaliseringen utmaningar. Syftet med IVAs projekt Digitalisering för ökad konkurrenskraft är att öka kunskapen och medvetenheten om dessa. Förslag till strategier, policys och konkreta åtgärder ska tas fram. Projektet arbetar inom tre områden: infrastruktur, kompetensförsörjning och integritet.

Seminarium om ekonomiska metoder för att utvärdera och föreslå lagstiftning på Stockholm Centre for Commercial Law

Docent Gustav Sjöberg behandlade frågor som rör samspelet mellan rättsvetenskap och ekonomi, alltså ett synsätt på rätten som huvudsakligen utgår från ett annat kunskapsområde. Rätten ses enligt detta synsätt som ett medel för att nå mål som formulerats med ekonomiska metoder. Fokus låg på frågor om hur användbar ekonomisk analys är i olika situationer, samt hur man kan konstruera ekonomiska modeller med syftet att bedöma lämpligheten i olika rättsliga lösningar.
