#PrivacyCamp23: Draft programme schedule

In 2023, the Privacy Camp invites you to participate in, and foster, a discussion about a world that finds itself in a constant state of crisis, and in which the digital is, itself, critical.

Check out the draft schedule now to find out what you can expect from the 11th edition of Privacy Camp. The event will take place on Wednesday 25 January 2023 from 9.00 to 17.30 CET as an offline gathering in Brussels, with the possibility of following an online stream of sessions online. Whether you want to attend physically or follow the stream online, you will need to register in order to receive the practical instructions. In either case, participation is free.
