[freehaven-dev] (FWD) CFP2001 Call For Participation

This would probably be a fun thing to go to (it's in our backyard,
after all).

And hey, perhaps it would be good timing for a talk on Red Rover.

(Both the DNS servers for cfp2001.org are currently unaware that they're
supposed to be serving for the domain. Oops. Maybe later.)

CFP2001: The Eleventh Conference on Computers, Freedom and Privacy

Hyatt Regency Cambridge
Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA

March 6 - 9, 2001


The Program Committee of the Conference on Computers, Freedom, and
Privacy (CFP2001) invites your participation and proposals for the
eleventh annual CFP, which will be held at the Hyatt Regency in
Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA, on March 6 - 9, 2001.

CFP2001 is sponsored by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM).

CFP is the leading policy conference for exploring the impact of the
Internet, computers and communications technologies on society.  For
more than a decade, CFP has anticipated the policy trends and issues
and shaped the public debate on the future of privacy and freedom in
the online world. Each year at CFP, key members of the technical,
government, business, education, non-profit, legal, law enforcement,
security, media and hacker/cracker communities gather together to
address the cutting edge questions in computing, freedom and privacy.
CFP themes are broad and forward-looking. CFP explores what will be,
not what has been.

Since this CFP will be held in 2001, the theme is the future of
computing, freedom and privacy, including the convergence of
information and communication technologies with other advanced
technology areas and the new challenges to freedom and privacy that
they engender throughout the world.  The Internet is a global
phenomenon with significant local impacts. We encourage innovative and
imaginative thinking on these topics and invite you to submit proposals
for CFP2001 conference activities.  Of particular interest are
proposals on:

GOVERNANCE, including impact of the Internet on governance; impact of
governance on the Internet; ICANN; voting; standards; antitrust and
competition policy; new models for governance; and stakeholders in

SOCIAL IMPACTS, such as the relationship between the individual and her

INDIVIDUAL AUTONOMY AND INTEGRITY, particularly human rights; freedom
of expression; censorship; free speech and access; freedom of
association; freedom of movement; and exploration of the roles of
non-identifiability, pseudonymity, and anonymity.

CONVERGENCE of information and communication technologies (ICT); of ICT
and content; of ICT with other advanced technology areas, including
biotechnology, biology and materials science; and related industry
mergers, consolidations and activities.

DIGITAL DIVIDE in the face of the growth of the ubiquitous information
environment; access to the network infrastructure; access to
information; broadband policy; education policy; and related
telecommunications, cable, intellectual property and freedom of
information (FOIA) rules.

PRIVACY, including the growth and role of the chief privacy officer;
privacy as the default; US legislation; international developments and
trends; and an international privacy convention.

INTERNATIONAL ISSUES, especially the emerging issues of global privacy
protection; international principles of human rights; security of
information systems; intellectual property; objectionable content;
cybercrime; jurisdiction; regulation; and legislation.

ELECTRONIC COMMERCE, including consumer protection; and the impact of
payment systems, regulations, and technical standards on personal
freedom and privacy.

We encourage proposals not only on these subjects, but also on the
border areas between these topics, such as intellectual property
protection and privacy.

We strongly encourage proposals that involve leading experts,
innovators, policymakers, and thinkers.


Proposals should be submitted no later than January 5, 2001, via the
CFP2001 website at http://www.cfp2001.org.

Proposals should include the following information:


     Plenary conference sessions (30 minutes to 1.5 hours)
