Abstract: The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation is poised to present major challenges in bridging the gap between law and technology. This paper reports on a workshop on the deployment, content and design of the GDPR that brought together academics, practitioners, civil-society actors, and regulators from the EU and the US. Discussions aimed at advancing current knowledge on the use of abstract legal terms in the context of applied technologies together with best practices following state of the art technologies. Five themes were discussed: state of the art, consent, de-identification, transparency, and development and deployment practices. Four traversal conflicts were identified, and research recommendations were outlined to reconcile these conflicts.
