2011 Workshop

Welcome to Cyber-surveillance in Everyday Life: An International Workshop.

Digitally mediated surveillance is an increasingly prevalent, but still largely invisible, aspect of everyday life. As we work, play and negotiate public spaces, on-line and off, we produce a growing stream of personal digital data of interest to unseen others.

This international workshop brings together researchers and a range of other actors working on issues relating to cyber-surveillance, particularly as it pervades and mediates social life. A central concern is to understand better digitally mediated surveillance practices, making them more publicly visible and democratically accountable.

This timely workshop gathers a range of contributions from experts working in a variety of settings such as NGOs, academia, industry and advocacy organizations. It features traditional academic research papers, as well as position statements, demonstrations, artistic interpretations an other contributions that take a critical approach to cyber-surveillance.

Cyber-surveillance in Everyday Life: An International Workshop takes place at the University of Toronto, May 12-15 2011. It is hosted by the New Transparency project.
