Join our workshop at WebScience 2015

Welcome to The Economics of Surveillance: A Critical Exploration of Data Practices, Consumer Rights and the Future of Digital Economies workshop homepage.

INVITED SPEAKER: Dr. Vicky NASH – Oxford Internet Institute

This year’s workshop will be held at the ACM Web Science 2015 Conference in Oxford on Tuesday, June 30th between 2 and 5pm.

The workshop is motivated by the need to address critically both the current state of our digital economies as well as its future incarnation. It aims to reflect on the current economics structures offered by web technologies and the growing number of critiques that surround it. We welcome papers that explore and discuss technical, social, legal, and or economic implications in relation to the Web’s economy. We would especially appreciate authors to present explorations of various international contexts, for we believe that issues, concerns and solutions may vary according to local situations, regulations or cultures. Papers can be theoretical or empirical in nature and may be a work in progress. Interdisciplinary and international perspectives are highly sought.
