Electronic Frontiers Forums at Dragon Con (Atlanta, GA; Sept. 1 – 4, 2017)
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.
With recent political changes, many are now more concerned than ever about freedom of speech, privacy, intellectual property enforcement, and everyone’s rights online. Electronic Frontiers Forums covers these areas and so much more!
This year, we’re delighted to have representatives from the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Public Knowledge, Access Now, and local organizations to discuss the latest news and issues in Internet and technology activism. Planned topics include Journalism in the Trump era, Network Neutrality, Cyber Forensics, Self-Driving Cars, Hacking Mobile Applications, the Wikileaks CIA Dump, and more! We’re also featuring two contests this year: the returning Crypto Challenge, and (new this year) Network King of the Hill.
