Call For Papers

CYBERLAWS 2013, The Fourth International Conference on Technical and Legal Aspects of the e-Society follows the multiplications of the cybercrime acts concerning privacy and anonymity in the information society. In accordance with the principle of freedom of expression and the right to privacy, the use of anonymity is legal. Users can access data and browse anonymously so that their personal details cannot be recorded and used without their knowledge by any other entity, including another user. As there are situations were content/information providers might wish to remain anonymous for legitimate purposes, they should not be required to justify anonymous use. The dangerous side of the legal anonymity is the shadow for illegal, damaging, and not easily to sue individuals and actions. Corporate and individual hassle, corporate and individual frauds, threats, and impersonations are only a few of these actions. While privacy, anonymity and freedom of speech are achieved rights, there is a vacuum on education, punishments, and laws that can be easily applied at the same velocity with which a cybercrime propagates. Applying the Civil Court legislation is tedious and naturally, too late to timely repair the damage and prevent its quick propagation. There is a need for special laws to either prevent or quickly reprimand. In this case, the identity must be legally and undoubtedly validated. In this case, the identity must be legally and undoubtedly validated. There is a need of internationally adopted guidelines to be applied by victims. There is a need for harmonization between national laws for a new era of eDemocracy.

CYBERLAWS 2013 will provide a forum where researchers, government representatives, international bodies, law enforcement organisms and special groups shall be able to present recent lessons learned, use cases, and set the priorities on problems and directions related to the anonymity, privacy, identity, and laws that should or are governing their legal use.

We solicit both academic, research, and industrial contributions. We welcome technical papers presenting research and practical results, position papers addressing the pros and cons of specific proposals, such as those being discussed in the standard fora or in industry consortia, survey papers addressing the key problems and solutions on any of the above topics short papers on work in progress, and panel proposals.
