The winner/s will be honored at one of the bi-annual surveillance studies conferences. They will receive an award amount of £100 (to be split among authors if there is more than one), as well as a 1-year membership for the Surveillance Studies Network (SSN), which provides many benefits including discounts on all SSN-sponsored conferences and events.

Research Round Table on Drones
Call for papers closes: Friday April 1.
The use of drones has increased exponentially. They are now a standard feature of war and are increasingly being deployed to assist with border protection and conservation work. More controversially, drones are cheap and easy to acquire. They are therefore also appealing to activists who want to obtain information about controversial activities taking place on private property.
