Description

Access Now is excited to bring the seventh edition of RightsCon, the world’s leading event on human rights in the digital age. RightsCon is where human rights experts, investors, business leaders, technologists, engineers, activists, and government representatives from around the world work to build strategies, create partnerships, and drive large-scale, real-world change toward tomorrow’s digital world.

From May 16 - 18, 2018, at the Beanfield Centre at Exhibition Place in Toronto, Canada, we will see a smarter, brighter, and better RightsCon, more intuitive and community-focused than ever before. There, you will join other experts to take on topical and current issues, showcase your work, and influence global norms.

Together we are tackling some of the most pressing issues at the intersection of human rights, technology, and the internet:

  • Digital Security and Encryption

  • Misinformation, Journalism, and the Future of Online Media

  • Artificial Intelligence, Automation, and Algorithmic Accountability

  • Internet Freedom, Network Disruptions, and Censorship

  • Privacy, Surveillance, and Data Protection

  • Countering Online Harassment, Hate Speech, and Violent Extremism

  • Diversity and Digital Inclusion

  • The State of Global Civil Society

  • Health, Environment, Land, and LabourNet Discrimination, Connectivity, and the Internet of Everything

  • Corporate Social Responsibility, Transparency, and Accountability

  • Trade, Innovation, and Intellectual Property

  • Digital Tech and Sustainable Development

  • Civic Tech, Citizenship, and E-Governance

  • Philanthropy, Funding, and Operational Development

  • Internet Governance, Institutions, and Jurisdiction

Access Now is committed to making RightsCon Toronto 2018 accessible and open to all, which means we are doing our best to make the conference affordable for participants and speakers from all over the world.

Due to the nature of this conference, in which a high proportion of the people attending are participating, we are asking that those speakers with the means to do so pay for all or a portion of their tickets. If your session has been accepted, or you are accepted as a speaker in a session, please email us at conference@accessnow.org with the name of your proposal and let us know your financial constraints, so we can share an appropriate discount code with you.

If you are a speaker or a session organizer representing a company, a funding institution/foundation, government, or an established NGO, we ask that you consider purchasing a ticket at full cost. In doing so, you are helping Access Now support the attendance of activists and technologists who would otherwise not be able to attend.

Access Now is a not for profit, 501(c)(3) organization that relies upon the support, investment, and generosity of a variety of stakeholders in order to carry out its mission. This ticket policy helps ensure that we can continue in our fight to secure open and secure communications for all by allowing us to better represent the most at risk users around the world.
