I am co-editing a special edition of IEEE Internet Computing on Internet Censorship and Control. We are looking for short (up to 5,000 words) articles on the technical, social, and political mechanisms and impacts of Internet censorship 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 will impact 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.
Please email the guest editors a brief description of the article you plan to submit by 15 August 2012. For further details, see the full CFP. Please distribute this CFP, and use this printable flyer if you wish.
