conversation, and politics. These changes compel us to reexamine the
definition of our rights and the processes by which those rights are being
The Fifth Conference on Computers, Freedom and Privacy will assemble experts,
advocates and interested people from a broad spectrum of disciplines and
backgrounds in a balanced public forum to explore and better understand the

government, law enforcement, public advocacy, and many others.
Featured speakers include:

Mason University and commentator, National Public Radio
