Dear all,

[With apologies for cross-posting] - in case of interest please find below
information regarding an advisory board position which will assist the
organisers of the International Conference of Data Protection Commissioners
(ICDPPC) <https://icdppc.org/>with preparations for the upcoming edition of
the Conference
<https://icdppc.org/news-events/forthcoming-conference-updates/> this year.

I previously shared a joint civil society letter to the organisers of the
Conference and canvassed signatures on this list (prior to the 39th edition
of the Conference in Hong Kong). Thanks to everyone who added their
support. The European Data Protection Supervisor (EDPS) issued a direct
response in December 2017 and it can be found by following the link
