Technology and Crime: Law, Privacy and Policy in the Era of Big Data
RESPECT 2nd Policy Workshop
September 17-18, 2014

For years, information about crimes has been collected. However, the use 
of data to contribute to public safety as well as to prevent and solve 
crimes has changed significantly with the proliferation of data-mining 
devices and processes. In the era of big data, analysing and 
understanding is more of a challenge than simply gathering data. At the 
same time, the existence of large-scale surveillance programmes and the 
routine collaboration between the public and private sector raise 
concerns about the space for law and privacy in these new practices. 
This all poses a challenge to policymaking, where the demands for 
increased security, privacy, transparency and accountability need to be 
negotiated and acted upon.

At this crucial moment for the intersection between security, law and 
technology, we are seeking papers that address any of the topics 
mentioned above, as well as contributions presenting new approaches to 
the issues at stake.

Abstracts of no more than 300 words (including authors, affiliation, 
contact details and at least 3 keywords should be sent before June 30th 
via https://www.easychair.org.
