Call For Proposals!
From mass surveillance to the over-commercialization of the World Wide Web, the concept of a free and open Internet is continously threatened by corporate interests and over-reaching governments. Radical Networks is a festival and a conference, designed to foster critical discussions around these issues and to create opportunities to learn more about policy, DIY networking and the future of the Internet.
We invite artists, lawyers, engineers, writers, policy makers, educators, scientists, journalists, community organizers, and more to present ideas in this year’s Radical Networks.
The 2018 Radical Networks call for participation is open to all! Proposals will first be short listed, prioritizing applications from women, people of color, LGBTSTGNC, immigrants, and disabled folks, and then passed on to a jury for a double-blind review.
Proposals can be for workshops, panels, talks, performances or to participate in our art exhibition. Not sure what to propose? Check out presentations from previous year's Radical Networks, or choose from this list of topics:
- 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.
Submissions are due by Tuesday July 31, 2018 at 11:59pm.
