About APC and APPR:
The Amsterdam Privacy Conference (APC) is a biennial conference organized by the Amsterdam Platform for Privacy Research (APPR), a group consisting of more than 60 researchers at the University of Amsterdam who are involved with privacy aspects in their daily activities. They all approach this topic from different angles, such as law, philosophy, economics, computer science, medicine, communication studies, political science, etc. Through an interdisciplinary approach and joint discussion, APPR increases both the understanding and awareness of privacy issues.
