CFP2000 Student Competition
Full-time college or graduate students may compete for financial
support to attend the conference and for cash prizes. There will be
two categories of competition: papers and Web presentations.
Both papers and Web presentations may
- address ways in which computer and information technologies can enhance
or inhibit community, freedom, and privacy,
- challenge prevailing assumptions about computers, freedom, and privacy,
- provide a ten-year retrospective of the Computers, Freedom, and Privacy
Papers should not exceed 3000 words. Papers will be
evaluated for their relevance, coherence, clarity of expression, and
originality. All papers should be submitted by December 10, 1999,
either via e-mail or in hard copy. If submitting hard copy, please
furnish 7 printed copies. For electronic submissions, the reviewers
have a bias against attachments: attachments that cannot be read
easily by the reviewers will not be judged.
Web presentations are collections of Web pages linked
together in a meaningful way. Web presentations will be evaluated for
their content and overall effect. Web sites are expected to be
platform-independent and easily accessible through low-bandwidth
connections. To enter the a Web presentation you created in the
competition, forward a url for the home page of the presentation by
December 10, 1999. Be sure to identify yourself as the author of the
Retrospectives may be entered as papers or Web presentations.
Retrospectives might, for example, discuss changes in the issues
discussed in light of events in the outside world, or identify the
assumptions that have remained constant through CFP's history, or
contrast European, Asian, and North American contributions to CFP
dialogue. Whatever the focus, they should go beyond merely linking to
or summarizing the archival materials available at
The most outstanding student paper will be published in the conference
proceedings, and the most outstanding Web presentation will be linked
from the CFP2000 Web site. The authors will receive prizes of US$500.
In addition, the submission that best makes use of the vast trove of
papers, audio, and video materials from the past ten years of
Computers, Freedom, and Privacy conferences will be similarly featured
and earn a prize of US$500. Prize winners and honorable mentions will
receive travel scholarships to cover expenses of attending CFP2000.
