The 19th annual Computers, Freedom, and Privacy conference is now accepting proposals for panels, workshop sessions, and other events.
CFP is the leading policy conference exploring the impact of the Internet, computers and communications technologies on society. It will be taking place in June 2009, just months into a brand new U.S. administration -- an exciting moment in history, as we look into the future and ask, "Where do we go from here?" For more than a decade, CFP has anticipated policy trends and issues and has shaped the public debate on the future of privacy and freedom in an ever more technology-filled world. CFP focuses on topics such as freedom of speech, privacy, intellectual property, cybersecurity, telecommunications, electronic democracy, digital rights and responsibilities, and the future of technologies and their implications.
We are requesting proposals and ideas for panels, plenaries, debates, keynote speakers, and other sessions that will address these and related topics and how we can shape public policy and the public debate on these topics as we create the future.
We especially encourage proposals that:
* Take advantage of our Washington, DC location
* Shed light on what we can expect from the new administration
* Incorporate a global and international perspective
* Focus on the future and what we can expect in the years to come in technology and policy
* Include debates or otherwise present challenging points of view
* Inform attendees about cutting-edge technologies and issues
However, we encourage proposals in all areas. The more complete and fleshed out a proposal, the more likely it will be accepted -- but we welcome the submission of all good ideas.
Open participation is invited for proposals on panels, tutorials, speaker suggestions, and birds of a feather sessions through the CFP 2009 submission page. Please read the submission guidelines.
The deadlines are coming up: tutorial and plenary proposals must be received by December 19, 2008.
This is a list of suggested topics, but we you have a good idea for a topic that's not in this list, please feel free to send it along.
