Mark your calendars! The 2014 Computers, Freedom, and Privacy Conference will be held June 8-10 at the Airlie Center in Warrenton, Virginia. The Airlie Center is located 45 minutes outside of Washington, DC in the heart of Virginia wine country. The Center will provide a serene backdrop for CFP 2014 to facilitate conversations, community, and change. This year’s conference will be co-chaired by Nuala O’Connor and Amie Stepanovich and will feature the theme, “The Internet Wants to be Free.” The Conference will be preceded by an Advocates’ Meeting during the day on Sunday, June 8 (for non-profit participants only, please), and will officially “kick off” with an opening keynote on Sunday evening. Participants will also be given an option to add an additional night at the Airlie Center to enjoy its recreational amenities for a special, reduced price. Registration for the conference will begin in February 2014, and will include cost of lodging and meals for all who wish to stay at Airlie (alternate options will be available for those who prefer to stay off-site). The official Call for Proposals is also now open, and anyone may submit an idea for a solo presentation, debate, roundtable discussion, workshop, or panel. We’re also encouraging “birds of a feather” submissions, social events meant to encourage organization and collaboration. Separately, the conference will feature several social events in which all registrants will be encouraged to participate.
We look forward to seeing you in June! More information here.
