Thanks for joining us in Santa Clara, CA, USA, for the 9th USENIX Workshop on Free and Open Communications on the Internet. FOCI brings 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.
As part of our commitment to open access to research, the workshop papers and presentation slides are free and open to the public on the Workshop Program page. Presentation slides are posted as we receive them.
