[FYI] [NYC, 1.-4.4.] CFP 2003 - Computers Freedom and Privacy
--- snip ---
Dear Friends of the Computers Freedom and Privacy Conference:
The date is rapidly approaching for the 13th Annual Computers Freedom and
Privacy Conference. CFP 2003 will be held in New York City from April 2-4.
This year's CFP will focus on the Freedom to Move, Think and Speak.
I urge you to go online at www.cfp2003.org and register today. We are
making a special effort this year to hold events in a variety of formats.
Exciting events include:
· A debate on the Pentagon's Information Awareness Program
· The "Moral Maze"-- a role playing session where both privacy advocates
and their opponents are confronted with dilemmas that put their principles
to the test
· A video surveillance tour of Manhattan by the "Surveillance Camera Players"
· Conservative Congressman Bob Barr on why he is a privacy advocate
· A recreation of the Yahoo case that tests the meaning of American
concepts of free speech on the global Internet
· The results of the "Silly Security Contest" and a keynote by security
expert Bruce Schneier, which in very different ways, will illustrate the
difference between smart and dumb security
· Framing speeches by Canadian Privacy Commissioner George Radwanksi
and Cyber Policy visionary Larry Lessig
· Up to the minute briefings on the "Patriot II" bill and the future of
Computers Freedom and Privacy after 9/11
And of course you can learn about, discuss, and debate many other topics,
from how new intellectual property regimes will determine the future of
free speech on the Internet, to trusted computing, to Internet filtering
programs, to how technology is used by dictatorships.
You can register for CFP 2003 on the conference Web site at:
www.cfp2003.org. The early registration fee is still available, so act now.
I am looking forward to meeting you in Manhattan in April.
Chair CFP 2003
