Paper submissions are due on Thursday, May 24, 2018.

The 8th USENIX Workshop on Free and Open Communications on the Internet (FOCI '18) will bring together researchers and practitioners from technology, law, and policy who are working on means to study, detect, or circumvent practices that inhibit free and open communications on the Internet.

Internet communications drive political and social change around the world. Governments and other actors seek to control, monitor, and block Internet communications for a variety of reasons, ranging from extending copyright law to suppressing free speech and assembly. Methods for controlling what content people post and view online are also multifarious. Whether it's traffic throttling by ISPs or man-in-the-middle attacks by countries seeking to identify those who are organizing protests, threats to free and open communications on the Internet raise a wide range of research and interdisciplinary challenges.

Interested in participating? The FOCI '18 Call for Papers is now available. Submissions are due May 24, 2018.
