Virtual Conference in Second Life

The Faculty of Law, Queen's University will hold a virtual conference in Second Life this Thursday, March 18 from 1 to 5 pm. Here is an email circulated by Professor Arthur Cockfield of the Surveillance Studies Centre at Queen's University:

"The conference, which is entitled 'Human Autonomy, Law and Technology: A Virtual Conference in Honour of the late Professor Emeritus Hugh Lawford', will include different professor/avatars discussing views on the relationship between law and technology. Session 2, which includes David Murakami Wood, will focus on privacy and surveillance themes. I plan to lecture on Philip K. Dick's views on surveillance during this session.

If you want to attend the conference as an avatar audience member in Second Life, please register here.

You can also view a live video streaming of the conference here.

More information about the conference can be found here.

I'd like to thank the individuals who helped to organize this mixed reality event: Queen's Law students Nathan Green, Erin Durant, and Patrick Chan as well as individuals with Queen's eLearning Services (Kim Sell, Brandon Nam and Stephanie Beauregard).

Please note that you can only register as an avatar audience member up to March 17 and that space is limited so that registration will be provided on a first come/first serve basis."
