Call for proposals – Radical Networks – deadline 10 August 2015 http://radicalnetworks.org/ From mass surveillance to the over-commercialization of the Internet, the technology that we depend upon for community and connection is being compromised. The recent accessibility of networking technology through devices such as the Raspberry Pi and software such as BATMAN Adv has made it affordable and possible for everyday citizens to learn how to design their own web servers and networks. We are seeking speakers, panel proposals, demos, and workshop leaders who would like to teach or present their ideas on computer networks. Some possible topics include: Offline networks Mesh networks Local networks for community Experimental application of computer networks Networks for political activism Network security for ordinary citizens Artistic use of computer networks Personal networks Bringing connectivity to rural areas Experimental social networks Control and ownership of networks Ethical hacking … and anything else that takes a fresh or critical look at how networks are used! October 24-25, 2015 NYU Poly 2 Metrotech Center, 8th Floor, MAGNET Brooklyn, NY 11201 Submissions are due by August 10, 2015 at 11:59pm. To submit your talk, panel, demo, or workshop, follow the instructions at: http://radicalnetworks.org/participate/ The call for participation is open to all! We encourage women, people of color, LGBTQIA, and differently-abled folks to apply!
