[PLUG] New Workshop: USENIX FOCI '11 Call for Papers Now Available

On behalf of the first USENIX Workshop on Free and Open Communications
on the Internet (FOCI '11) program committee, we invite you to submit
short position papers or work-in-progress reports on policies or
technologies to detect or circumvent practices that inhibit free and
open communications on the Internet. 

Please submit all papers by May 1, 2011, at 11:59 p.m. PDT.

FOCI '11 seeks to bring together researchers and practitioners from both
technology and policy backgrounds to share their experience in this
field of study. We encourage submissions of new, interesting work on a
wide variety of topics of interest, including but not limited to the
following areas:

* Evaluation or analysis of existing anti-censorship systems
* Comparisons of existing performance-measurement tools that might be
used to detect tampering (e.g., violations of "network neutrality")
* Studies and findings on censorship or tampering from field deployments
(e.g., what content various countries are currently censoring, the
extent to which ISPs are degrading certain types of content)
* Analysis of the economic impact of censorship
* Metrics for deniability and robustness
* Performance metrics and benchmarks for detecting content tampering or
performance degradation
* Detecting and measuring the censorship of search results
* The design of network protocols and topologies that resist tampering or
* Techniques to counter mass surveillance
* Policy-related issues

Submissions are due by May 1, 2011, at 11:59 p.m. PDT.

We look forward to receiving your submissions!
