Hi Libtech,

Steven Murdoch and I are co-guest-editing an issue of IEEE's Internet 
Computing on Internet Cesnroship and Control.  We're hoping for 
submissions from a broad variety of folks, including especially folks 
here at the forefront of the battles over Internet control.

If you have any questions about something you might like to submit, 
please feel free to email me.



Internet Censorship and Control (May/June 2013)

Final submissions due 1 September 2012

Please email the guest editors a brief description of the article you 
plan to submit by 15 August 2012

Guest Editors: Hal Roberts and Steven Murdoch (ic3-2013 at

The Internet is a battleground where fights for technical, social, and 
political control are waged, including between governments and their 
citizens, separate governments, and competing commercial interests. 
These fights take many forms, such as Internet filtering versus 
circumvention, surveillance versus anonymization, adversarial attacks 
versus protection mechanisms, and on- and offline persecution and 
defense of online activists. These battles impact and are impacted by 
the Internet’s technical structure. As the Internet continues to embed 
itself into our world, its structural changes will have an increasing 
effect on our social and political structures and vice versa.

This special issue seeks articles on the technical, social, and 
political mechanisms and impacts of Internet censor- ship and control. 
We’re soliciting both technical and social science articles, and 
especially encourage those that combine the two. Appropriate topics include

* explorations of how the Internet’s technical, social, and political 
structures impact its censorship and control;
* evaluations of how existing technologies and policies affect Internet 
censorship and control;
* proposals for new technologies and policies;
* discussions on how proposed technical, legal, or governance changes to 
the Internet affect censorship and control;
* analysis of techniques, methodologies, and results of monitoring 
Internet censorship and control; and
* examinations of trade-offs between control and freedom, and how these 
sides can be balanced.
