Electronic Frontiers Forums at Dragon Con (Atlanta, GA; Sept. 2 – 5, 2016)
Electronic Frontiers Forums is a series of lectures and panels given at the Dragon Con Science Fiction Convention each year on Labor Day weekend in downtown Atlanta, Georgia. Originally inspired by the Computers, Freedom, and Privacy Conference, Electronic Frontiers Forums has taken on a life of its own by bringing some of the best technical and legal minds together to hash out the future and have a little fun along the way.
Concerned about freedom of speech, privacy, copyright, and YOUR rights online? So are we! Electronic Frontiers Forums covers the intersection of law, technology, society, and activism by bringing the best legal and technical minds together to hash out the future and have a little fun along the way.
This year, we’re delighted to have representatives from the ElectronicFrontier Foundation, Public Knowledge, Access (at accessnow.org), andNew America’s Open Technology Initiative to discuss the latest news and issues in Internet and technology activism.
