*Topics on Internet Censorship and Surveillance (TICS): Call for Contributions*

PDF version: https://www.iaria.org/conferences2019/filesICN19/TICS.pdf

(Spanish version below)

Over the past years there has been a greater demand for online censorship and
surveillance, as an understandable reaction against hate speech, copyright
violations, and other cases related to citizen compliance with civil laws and
regulations by national authorities. Unfortunately, this is often accompanied
by a tendency of extensively censoring online content and massively spying on
citizens actions. Numerous whistleblower revelations, leaks from classified
documents, and a vast amount of information released by activists, researchers
and journalists, reveal evidence of government-sponsored infrastructure that
either goes beyond the requirements and scope of the law, or operates without
any effective regulations in place. In addition, this infrastructure often
supports the interests of big private corporations, such as the companies that
enforce online copyright control.

TICS is a special track the area of Internet censorship, surveillance and other
adversarial burdens to technology that bring in danger; to a greater extend the
safety (physical security and privacy) of its users. Proposals for TICS 2019
should be situated within the field of Internet censorship, network
measurements, information controls, surveillance and content moderation.
Ideally topics should connect to the following, but not limited to:

- Technical, social, political, and economical implications of Internet
censorship and surveillance
- Detection and analysis of network blocking and surveillance infrastructure
(hardware or software)
- Research on legal frameworks, regulations and policies that imply blocking or
limitation of the availability of network services and online content
- Online censorship circumvention and anti-surveillance practices
- Network measurements methodologies to detect and categorize network
interference
- Research on the implications of automated or centralized user content
regulation (such as for hate speech, copyright, or disinformation)

Llamado a contribuciones para participación:

Con el paso de los años, se va erigiendo cada vez más censura y vigilancia para
enfrentar los casos de extremismo, discursos de odio, cumplimiento de derechos
de autor, y otras situaciones en que se busca asegurar que los ciudadanos
cumplan con las leyes y regulaciones. Sin embargo, vemos un aumento
desafortunado en la tendencia de los gobiernos de sobre-bloquear y
sobre-vigilar a sus ciudadanos. Numerosas revelaciones de denunciantes,
filtraciones de documentos clasificados, y una gran cantidad de información que
ha sido presentada por activistas, investigadores y periodistas revelan
evidencia de cómo los gobiernos instalan y operan, sin un marco regulatorio que
controle y limite los ámbitos o flujos de información capturados en servicios
en línea y/o sitios Web. Los gobiernos vigilan celosamente a sus propios
ciudadanos apoyando los intereses de las grandes corporaciones como las
compañías que buscan aumentar el control de los derechos de autor en línea.
