Dear all,

I am co-editing an issue of IEEE Internet Computing on "Internet Censorship and Control". If anyone has proposals for a short article (up to 5,000 words), then please email me  a brief description of the article you plan to submit by 15 August 2012. The deadline for the article itself is 1 September 2012. 

This special issue seeks articles on the technical, social, and political mechanisms and impacts of Internet censorship and control. We’re soliciting both technical and social science articles, and especially encourage those that combine the two. Appropriate topics include

	• explorations of how the Internet’s technical, social, and political structures impact its censorship and control;
	• evaluations of how existing technologies and policies affect Internet censorship and control;
	• proposals for new technologies and policies;
	• discussions on how proposed technical, legal, or governance changes to the Internet will impact censorship and control;
	• analysis of techniques, methodologies, and results of monitoring Internet censorship and control; and
	• examinations of trade-offs between control and freedom, and how these sides can be balanced.

For further details, please see the issue website: http://www.computer.org/portal/web/computingnow/iccfp3

We're trying to negotiate something better with regards to copyright, but at the moment standard IEEE policy holds: you can publish the accepted version of the paper on your own server or that of your institution provided you refer back to the version on the IEEE website.
