ATW 2014: Privacy and Surveillance in the Digital Age

KIAS is hosting a digital conference which brings together, by video streaming, participants from institutes around the world. We are attempting this experiment to model an environmentally sustainable way of hosting dialogues on important global topics. For example, instead of flying researchers from various national and international locations to Edmonton, and creating a significant environmental footprint, we create a digital platform for the conference. We ran a similar conference last year on technology and culture. More information at:
