IPEN invites participants from different areas such as data protection authorities, academia, open source and business development, and other individuals who are committed to finding engineering solutions to privacy challenges. The objective of the work should be to integrate data protection and privacy into all phases of the development process, from the requirements phase to production, as it is most appropriate for the development model and the application environment.

IPEN supports networking between engineer groups and existing initiatives for engineering privacy into the internet. This network facilitates exchange in order to coordinate work and avoid duplication, in addition to discussing which privacy oriented use cases should be addressed with priority.

IPEN workshops bring together privacy experts and engineers from public authorities, industry, academia and civil society to discuss relevant challenges and developments for the technological implementation of data protection and privacy.

For this year’s edition, we are expecting contributions relating to privacy features of communications systems and devices and to industry processes related to ensuring data protection by design in systems development. We welcome suggestions for other topics related to privacy engineering.

Potential contributors should provide a short description of their topic. Please send submissions to by Monday 14 May at the latest.

Contributions may be in the form of a presentation of 15 to 30 minutes or a panel of up to 90 minutes. Breakout sessions may also be possible.

The workshop is free of charge. Participants will carry their own expenses.

Registration requests should be sent to For participation requests received by 14 May we will aim to provide confirmation by 18 May.

The event takes place immediately after the ENISA Annual Privacy Forum 2018 (on 13-14 June in Barcelona).
