Surveillance is the act of monitoring the behavior and activities of people for the purpose of influencing, directing or protecting them. Surveillance is useful to governments and law enforcement to maintain social control, recognize threats, and prevent and investigate crimes. On the other hand, surveillance affects people's privacy, personal freedoms and rights and can be exploited as a powerful tool for coercion, censorship and political control. 

The Workshop on Surveillance and Technology (SAT) aims to bring together researchers and scholars in privacy, security, cryptography, Law, policy, behavioral economics and psychology to discuss all aspects of surveillance including (but not limited to):

	* Anonymity systems, 
	* Anti-surveillance technologies,
	* Case studies of real-world surveillance and censorship, 
	* Cryptographic techniques for anti-surveillance,
	* Cryptographic techniques for privacy-preserving surveillance, 
	* Legal analysis of surveillance, 
	* Measurement studies of surveillance activity, 
	* Privacy-preserving surveillance technologies,
	* Psychological impacts and aspects of surveillance, 
	* Policy implications of surveillance, 
	* The economics of surveillance,
	* Surveillance and censorship,
	* Surveillance and diplomacy,
	* Surveillance and human rights,
	* Surveillance and the private sector
