The Program Committee of the conference on Computers, Freedom, and
Privacy (CFP99) is seeking proposals for the ninth annual CFP, which
will be held in Washington DC between April 6th and April 8th 1999 at
the Omni Sheraton Hotel.

CFP is the leading Internet policy conference. For almost a decade,
CFP has shaped the public debate on the future of privacy and freedom
in the online world. The CFP audience is diverse with representatives
from government, business, education, non-profits and the media. The
themes are broad and forward-looking. CFP explores what will be, not
what has been. It is the place where the future is mapped.

The theme of the 1999 CFP conference is "The Global Internet."
Proposals are welcomed on all aspects of privacy and freedom. The 1999
Program Committee is particularly interested in receiving proposals
that deal with:

 ACCESS TO THE INTERNET, particularly those relating to
 globalization and governance. Of particular interest are
 issues of privacy, censorship, free speech and access.

 INTERNATIONAL ISSUES, especially the emerging issues of global
 privacy protection, encryption policy, international
 principles of human rights, regulation, legislation, and

 ELECTRONIC COMMERCE, including the impact of payment systems,
 regulations, and technical standards on personal freedom and

 CULTURE AND LANGUAGE ON THE INTERNET, such as the significance
 of diversity, multilingualism, and cultural representation

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

The CFP99 Program Committee will finalize the selection of
proposals by February 1, 1999, and all proposals must be received by
January 15, 1999 Please follow the submission guidelines below.
