Deadline extended: Computers, Freedom & Privacy Research Showcase

This year’s Computers, Freedom and Privacy Conference will feature a research showcase in the form of a research poster session as well as a research panel that includes the authors of the best research posters. CFP is the leading policy conference exploring the impact of the Internet, computers, and communications technologies on society. 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. Researchers who work in any of these areas are invited to submit research abstracts.

We seek research abstracts describing recent or ongoing research in all areas relevant to the conference themes. We are especially interested in research abstracts that present results with clearly articulated policy implications. Abstracts should be written for a general audience and should avoid using technical or legal jargon.

Submitted research abstracts can be either unpublished original research (including work in progress), or research that has been recently published (2008 or 2009).

This is a great opportunity to get interesting work in front of a diverse audience. I’m on the program committee, and we’ve extended the deadline — all you need to submit is an abstract — to Friday the 10th. Check it out.

    In this age of corporations cutting back on funding for travel and conferences, are there any plans to make available webcasts or alternate means of obtaining the content?

  • I believe there will be some webcasts available and some materials will be posted online. For the research showcase specifically, all abstracts will be posted.
