Workshop on Surveillance and Technology

This is an announcement for a workshop that I am organizing in conjunction with the Privacy Enhancing Technologies Symposium (PETS). Due to the Snowden disclosures, mass surveillance has become one of the most highly-discussed and controversial issues in politics, policy, technology and international affairs. Modern surveillance, however, relies heavily on technology and, therefore, our community has a unique role to play in not only understanding surveillance but in mitigating it when excessive and restraining/limiting it when appropriate.
