    The University of Toronto is convening a week-long workshop taking place
    July 22-26, 2013 focused on monitoring Internet openness and rights from
    a multidisciplinary perspective.

    We would like to invite leading researchers, students, and practitioners
    from a wide range of disciplines to discuss research on the study of
    information controls, present latest work, facilitate research review
    and mentorship, discuss research ethics, and engage in intensive
    research methods training.

    We encourage submissions on a wide range of relevant topics. Submission
    that explore multidisciplinary approaches are especially encouraged.
    Possible topics include, but are not limited to: Measuring Internet
    censorship, detecting surveillance, new tools and research methods,
    research ethics, legal and regulatory frameworks, role of private sector
    actors in censorship and surveillance, analysis of the social, economic
    and political impacts of censorship and surveillance.

    Interested participants should send a one page abstract summarizing what
    they plan to present at the workshop as well as any relevant experience
    or topics of specific interest. The abstract should also indicate the
    preferred presentation format for the work (poster, short talk, or
    tutorial) and indicate if the person will require travel support to
    attend the institute. A limited pool of travel support is available and
    will be allocated based on strength of the abstract and demonstrated

    Please submit abstracts to info at citizenlab.org
    <http://citizenlab.org>  with the subject
    "Summer Institute 2013" by June 1, 2013.
