Computer Freedom and Privacy CFP (Wash DC March 2013)


    For time and the world do not stand still.  Change is the law of life.  And those who look only to the past or the present
    are certain to miss the future.  --- John F. Kennedy

To the CFP Community:

We need your help.  CFP relies on the expertise of the CFP community of experts --- advocates, academics, technologists and policymakers and influencers to help plan the CFP conferences.  We are now putting out a call for proposals for CFP2013.  Proposals can be for potential speakers, panelists, and debate topics.

The theme of the conference is "Our Computers, Our Freedom:  Can You Trust Anyone in the Digital Age?" and we will be focusing on the three tracks of the conference --- Track 1: Technology; Track 2:
Freedom; Track 3: Privacy.  The Program Committee's goal for CFP2013 is to have a balanced mix of all topics and is especially welcome to proposals related to the technology aspects of our digital world.

Proposals can be submitted here:

The deadline for submissions is December 15.  Submitters will be notified as their proposals are accepted.

The CFP2013 Program Committee will review the proposals and create the agenda for next year's conference.  As in years past, the Program Committee may offer suggestions to draw out topics, recommend that similar proposals be combined into one session, and help in securing panelists and keynote speakers.

CFP's success is largely due to the active participation of the public interest, nonprofit, corporate, and government community.  Every year CFP draws a robust group together to discuss and debate the issues of the day --- technology, freedom, and privacy.  Your continued participation and engagement is critical to CFP's continued success.
