"Welcome to the 2019 International Conference"from Elizabeth Denham, Chair of ICDPPC

Welcome note by the Host

On behalf of the Information and Data Protection Commissioner of Albania and the Executive Committee of the ICDPPC, I would like to invite you to Tirana, Albania, in the Western Balkans, to attend the 41st International Conference of Data Protection and Privacy Commissioners (ICDPPC 2019).

This 41st edition of the ICDPPC will be held from 21 to 24 October 2019 at the Palace of Congresses located in the heart of Tirana. Data Protection and Privacy Authorities, practitioners, as well as companies from across the globe are invited to join the 41st ICDPPC and assist to a programme that, as we speak, is being prepared by a group of dedicated top experts gathered around an Open Session Programme Advisory Committee from across continents and domains of expertise.

Attending the 41st ICDPPC will also give you an opportunity to discover and learn more about Albania, ideally located on the Mediterranean Sea.

Albania is a country rich in history, culture, nature and gastronomy, acclaimed for its religious and cultural diversity and tolerance. Member of the UN, NATO, WB, UNESCO, COE, OSCE, WTO and OIC, it is also an official candidate for Membership in the European Union.
