June 1-4, 2009, Washington DC

[Submission deadline extended to April 10!]

This year's Computers, Freedom and Privacy Conference will feature a research showcase in the form of a research poster session as well as a research panel that includes the authors of the best research posters. CFP is the leading policy conference exploring the impact of the Internet, computers, and communications technologies on society. For more than a decade, CFP has anticipated policy trends and issues, and has shaped the public debate on the future of privacy and freedom in an ever more technology-filled world. CFP focuses on topics such as freedom of speech, privacy, intellectual property, cybersecurity, telecommunications, electronic democracy, digital rights and responsibilities, and the future of technologies and their implications. Researchers who work in any of these areas are invited to submit research abstracts.

We seek research abstracts describing recent or ongoing research in all areas relevant to the conference themes. We are especially interested in research abstracts that present results with clearly articulated policy implications. Abstracts should be written for a general audience and should avoid using technical or legal jargon.

Submitted research abstracts can be either unpublished original research (including work in progress), or research that has been recently published (2008 or 2009).

Accepted abstracts or links to published papers will be posted on the CFP web site and authors will be invited to present their work in the form of a poster during a poster session on June 1 or 2, 2009. The authors of the best research posters will be invited to participate in a panel discussion.

Please submit your abstract via email to cfp-posters AT In the body of the message include the title, authors, and brief abstract. If the research has been published, also include the full citation and URL. Attach a 1-2 page extended abstract or the full paper as a PDF file. Please note that poster abstracts should be formatted like short papers, not like posters. Authors of accepted posters will be sent information about how to prepare and format posters for the conference.

Deadline: Submissions will close at 5pm, US East Coast time, the evening of April 10.
