CFP 4S / EASST: Peripheral States: Public Uses and Misuses of Big Data Technologies

Dear all,

Please consider this call for proposals for the open panel 133 to be
held at EASST/4S 18-21 August 2020 in Prague:

*Open Panel133

Peripheral States: Public Uses and Misuses of Big Data Technologies

For the last ten years, governments, especially in peripheral states
have followed the technological path imposed by the giants of the new
digital economy without having the time of reflecting and regulate the
side effects of the production and accumulation of such amount of
private and sensitive information. Moreover, many of them has fallen in
the temptation of building (buying) mass surveillance systems to better
control their citizens without having a real control over the technology
they are using.

This open panel aims to bring together scholars from different parts of
the world to discuss the paths and approach governments from south and
north are following in the adoption of big data technologies, their uses
and misuses.


big data, peripheral states, data leaks, surveillance systems, privacy


Big Data, Governance and Public Policy, Engineering and Infrastructure

Abstracts up to
250 words can be submitted directly through the
4S/EASST website

February 29, 2020

We look forward to your proposals,
