Hi Friends,

Apologies for the cross-posting.
As you may know, RightsCon Silicon Valley <http://www.rightscon.org/> is
taking place March 3-5 in San Francisco at Mission Bay Conference Center.
 This is an opportunity for different communities to come together - global
activists, companies, thinkers, investors, engineers and government
officials - to discuss the tensions and opportunities at the intersection
of human rights and the internet.

RightsCon Silicon Valley <http://www.rightscon.org/> has a particular focus
on technology companies and aims to create a space for multistakeholder and
business-to-business dialogue on human rights best practices and learnings
in the context of the private sector.

The program is open to

submissions on the following themes: Measuring and preventing risk in the
ICT sector; Tech solutions for human rights challenges; Innovations in
digital rights; Internet governance reform; and Restoring rights in the age
of surveillance.

The deadline for submission is December 20th.  If you have questions, check
out the website at rightscon.org, or email Rian Wanstreet at rian (at)
accessnow (dot) org.

For those of you who have participated in RightsCon in the past, we look
forward to seeing you again!

Abd El Fattah (one of Egypt's most respected activists and software
engineers (currently detained)); Jim Cowie (CTO, Renesys); Rebecca
MacKinnon (Ranking Digital Rights); Brad Burnham (Union Square Ventures);
