Join us for the 6th annual Privacy Camp! Privacy Camp will take place on 23 January 2018 in Brussels, Belgium, just before the start of the CPDP conference. Privacy Camp brings together civil society, policy-makers and academia to discuss existing and looming problems for human rights in the digital environment. In the face of a “shrinking civic space” for collective action, the event aims to provide a platform for actors from across these domains to discuss and develop shared principles to address key challenges for digital rights and freedoms of individuals.
Our theme this year is “speech, settings and [in]security by design”. The two main tracks of the event therefore will focus on the one hand on the security of devices and infrastructure, and on the other hand on areas and policies where legitimate speech is endangered. Participate!
The first track will include sessions on state hacking and malware, law enforcement access to user data (so-called “e-evidence”), device security with hands-on tutorials on how to protect your communications better.
The second track will include sessions on algorithmic decision-making and discrimination via big data and privacy-invasive measures to censor legitimate speech online, as well as the hacking of democracies via the spread of misinformation and propaganda.
We invite you to propose a panel for one of these two tracks:
Track 01 [in]security of devices
Topics: #statehacking #encryption #surveillance #statemalware #Eevidence #security
Track 02 [in]security of speech
Topics: #uploadfilters #censorship #algorithms #discrimination #accountability #hackingelections #misinformation #propaganda #technopolitics
When submitting your proposal:
- Indicate a clear objective for your session: What would be a good outcome for you?
- Indicate other speakers that could participate in your panel (and let us know which speaker has already confirmed, at least in principle, to participate).
- Make it as participative as possible, think about how to include the audience and diverse actors as much as possible.
- Send us a description of no more than 500 words.
- Deadline for submissions is 20 November.
After the deadline, we will review your submission and let you know by 6 December whether your panel can be included in the programme. It is possible that we suggest to merge proposals if they are very similar.
Please send your proposal via email to Maren <edri.intern3(at)edri(dot)org>!
If you have questions, please contact Kirsten <kirsten.fiedler(at)edri(dot)org> or Imge <imge.ozcan(at)vub(dot)be>.
