ONI Conference: The Future of Free Expression on the Internet

There is a conference being held on the 18th May and hosted at the Oxford Internet Institute, which judging by the website is well worth going:

The OpenNet Initiative is holding its first public conference to discuss the current state of play of Internet filtering worldwide. The conference will be hosted by the Oxford Internet Institute on May 18, 2007. The conference is free of charge and open to the public.

Results from the first global study of Internet filtering carried out by the OpenNet Initiative will be on the table for a day of discussion involving ICT development experts, speech and human rights advocates, journalists and bloggers, international laywers and scholars, and others interested in state responses to online information flows. We hope you will join us in exploring interpretations and implications of our data and helping to shape the OpenNet Initiative's evolving research agenda.

The day will conclude with a debate hosted by the Oxford Union - Resolved: the Internet is the greatest force for democracy around the world.
