Call for proposals – Radical Networks – deadline 10 August 2015

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!
