Electronic Frontiers Forums is a series of lectures and panels given at the DragonCon Science Fiction Convention each year on Labor Day weekend in downtown Atlanta, Georgia.  We cover the intersection of law, technology, society, and activism.  Originally inspired by the Computers, Freedom, and Privacy Conference, Electronic Frontiers Forums has taken on a life of its own by bringing some of the best technical and legal minds together to hash out the future and have a little fun along the way.

Worried about freedom of speech, privacy, and your rights on line?  So are we!  Now in it's fourteenth year, Electronic Frontiers Forums covers your rights on the Internet and the latest trends in online media.  Topics include online privacy, security, freedom of expression, intellectual property, online activism, social networking, online publishing, and multi-player gaming.

Topics we have covered in the past have included digital forensics, phishing and online fraud, ACTA (the "secret" copyright treaty), botnets, personal privacy and encryption, self publishing, marketing with Twitter, Obama report card, the Cybersecurity Act of 2009, and asserting your Fourth Amendment rights.
