The 21st annual Association for Computing Machinery’s “Computers, Freedom, and Privacy” conference invites proposals for this year’s conference. This year’s conference theme is Computers, Freedom, and Privacy: The Future is Now. We encourage multi-stakeholder participation in the conference as speakers, proposal submitters, and attendees that represent the diverse global community of organizations and professionals who work on policy, technology and law. Proposals that focus on the information society and the future of technology, privacy, innovation and law should be submitted following the guidelines outlined below.
We seek panel proposals that take advantage of this year’s location in Washington DC. Experts, the public and policy makers each have a part to play in innovation and in moving policy and technology forward, while preserving basic rights and freedoms.
Deadlines: 15 March early bird submissions to organize panel or workshop, 1 May final deadline.
An alternative event with an alternative cast of contributors, is ContactCon in NYC 20 October.
