This is an oppportunity to make high-profile statements challenging the illusion that there is any meaningful regulation of electronic voting systems.

(For reinforcement of that message, read and refer to the testimony of David Wagner).

Deadline: August 18

Note that each of the invited witnesses' presentations are downloadable as individual reports. Video is also now available.
