[PLUG] New Workshop: USENIX FOCI '11 Submission Deadline Approaching

We're writing to remind you that the submission deadline for the first
USENIX Workshop on Free and Open Communications on the Internet (FOCI
'11) is approaching. Please submit your work 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 short position papers or
work-in-progress reports 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

For more details on the submission process, please see the complete Call

We look forward to receiving your submissions!
