Call for Participation (SSN Oregon 2023): Oregon Surveillance Studies Workshop 2023

The Surveillance Studies Network (SSN) and our local hosts and sponsors (the University of Oregon’s School of Journalism and Communication and Oregon State University’s School of Communication) are pleased to invite you to join us in person or online for the upcoming SSN Oregon 2023 conference in Eugene, Oregon, USA. The conference is being held on October 13-14, 2023. The conference will include workshops for works-in-progress papers on a variety of surveillance topics as well as some plenary/keynote roundtable discussions and an exciting social event (more details soon).

We have opportunities for you to participate in person or remotely if you are not able to come to Eugene! We are now seeking expressions of interest for discussants/commenters who will provide prepared comments on each paper at the conference and help lead the sessions. We will have fully remote and in-person sessions (which we hope will also be accessible for remote participants), and would love to have all of you participate as discussants even if you can only attend and do so remotely.

If you are interested and willing to serve as a discussant, we invite you to complete the survey ( to indicate which papers you might be interested in commenting on during the conference.

More updated details about the conference are at

We look forward to having you join us for the conference in person or remotely as your circumstances permit.
