The submission deadline for this year's Free and Open Communications
on the Internet (FOCI) workshop is coming up in ten days.

The workshop will be co-located with Usenix Security in Santa Clara
in August.


Here's the blurb:

"The Free and Open Communications on the Internet (FOCI) workshop, now
in its 9th year, is a vibrant, peer-reviewed event dedicated to bringing
together researchers and practitioners from technology, law, and policy
who are working on a wide variety of censorship-related topics. This
includes direct censorship mechanisms---both technical and legal---as
well as indirect methods of censorship through coordinated harassment
campaigns and online astroturfing that may be used to drown out and/or
chill free expression."

We encouraged Susan and Michael, the chairs this year, to make it their
own by adding the areas they find most fascinating, and they picked
the harassment and astroturfing angle, which I agree needs much more
attention from both the research and practitioner worlds.

So, you should submit your workshop paper!

And even if you don't submit, you should come to the workshop. There will
be a bunch of great censorship circumvention and censorship measurement
people there, including as usual some Tor people.
