Dear all,


Just a friendly reminder of our meeting later today at 16:00 outside Estrel Saal B. We will be discussing our research overlaps and opportunities for collaboration. If you know anyone who is at the IGF and would be good to involve in this (even though they are not a member of the CPR), please feel free to invite them.


See you soon!

Subject: [CPR] CPR session (27/11) and informal meeting (26/11)


Dear all,


As the Internet Governance Forum is approaching, this email is to coordinate with those who are going to be in attendance.


First, as you probably know, the CPR will hold its session on 27 November from 15 to 16:30 in Estrel Saal B in Sonnenallee 225, 12057 Berlin, and you are warmly invited to participate. We’re delighted to have a panel representing views from a range of experts and stakeholders, promising a lively discussion. You will find more details at the bottom of this email. By way of stimulation of your punctuality at the session, please be informed that we will have 100 hard copies of the Computer Law & Security Review’s Special Issue on ‘Platform Values: Conflicting Rights, AI and Tax Avoidance’ available on a first come, first served basis.


Second, as in previous years, we would like to arrange an informal meeting of CPR members and likeminded researchers to discuss ideas and opportunities for collaboration around platform responsibility. We think that the best moment of the conference to do that is during one of the introductory high-level sessions. Therefore, we’d like to invite you to join us to meet at 16h on 26 November (day 1 of the IGF) at the main entrance of the room where our session will take place (again, Estrel Saal B). If you think you will be able to make it, please let us know (offlist) so we can count you in and make sure to find a suitable location for the meeting.


We look forward to seeing you in Berlin!


Best wishes,

Nicolo and Luca
