The first day of the workshop would include networking and panel sessions that highlight cutting edge research and open questions for the community. The streams are:
Network Interference and Circumvention (measuring and circumventing forms of network interference including Internet censorship, throttling, application level censorship, network shutdowns, etc.),
Surveillance and Counter Surveillance (analyzing the technologies, laws, and policies that enable targeted and passive surveillance, along with technologies and practices for evading surveillance),
App and Device Analysis (conducting security and privacy audits of mobile and desktop applications and hardware devices) and
Corporate and Public Transparency (developing research methods for documenting corporate and government transparency and discuss advocacy strategies for pushing for greater transparency in these sectors).
This would be followed by two days of collaborating on projects.
