3rd Workshop on obfuscation
May 4 & 7, 2021
An online gathering
Organized by TU Delft and Cornell Tech
Welcome! The 3rd Workshop on Obfuscation took place online on May 7, 2021, a full day of online talks and gatherings.
The aim of the workshop was to convene participants around the concept and practice of obfuscation in digital societies. We welcomed researchers, scientists, policy makers, public-interest developers and coders, journalists, activists, artists and other interested parties to discuss obfuscation in environments and conditions of asymmetrical power and information. The workshop opened with a vernissage on May 4, 2021, where we welcomed all participants and released artworks and media from invited speakers.
Report of the 2nd Workshop on obfuscation (WO 2017)
The Workshop Report from the 2nd Workshop on Obfuscation, available as individual articles on this website as well as in a printer-friendly PDF. Whether you were able to attend or couldn't make it, we hope this report will provide further resources towards developing obfuscation both as a theory and praxis.
We have asked our panelists to each provide a brief essay summarizing their project, concept, application—with an emphasis on the questions, challenges, and discussions raised during the weekend. As with the workshop itself, this report is a starting point rather than an end point.
