34th International Conference of Data Protection and Privacy Commissioners
The International Conference of Data Protection and Privacy Commissioners has been held since 1978, and it is the only international event that brings together all the commissioners related with privacy regulation and personal data protection, as well as experts and representatives from civil society and academia. The previous editions took place in France, Spain, Israel and Mexico, and it is the most important meeting worldwide on issues relating to privacy and personal data protection. Its main objective is to generate exchanges, share knowledge and promote projects of rules and regulations to be adopted for the cooperative work among the nations, an essential requisite with a view to a problem of global scope which does not recognize geographical boundaries. The opening ceremonies of the previous editions of the International Conference were led by high dignitaries and authorities of the host country.
