Dear colleagues, (apologies for cross-posting)
It is a great pleasure to announce the first CyberBRICS Fellowship Programme to be hosted at FGV Law School, Rio de Janeiro.
The programme will offer five remunerated fellowships, from February to July 2019, at FGV DIREITO RIO, to support selected scholars having relevant experience in data protection and cybersecurity frameworks in at least one of the BRICS countries.
The full Call for Applications is available at https://internet-governance.fgv.br/call-applications-cyberbrics-fellowship-…
The CyberBRICS Project is the result of 2 years of consultations with a wide range of partners and stakeholders, including a dedicated IGF workshop, in 2017<https://igf2017.sched.com/event/CTrY/cyberbrics-building-the-next-generatio…>; consultations with the Brazilian Foreign Affairs Ministry, the China International Publishing Group and the Open Society Foundations; and extensive exchanges with CyberBRICS partners.*
The CyberBRICS fellows will be selected by a commission formed by Prof Luca Belli, from FGV DIREITO RIO (Brazil), Prof Alexey Ivanov, from the Higher School of Economics (Russia), Ms Elonnai Hickok, from the Centre for Internet and Society (India), Prof Shen Yi, from Fudan University (China), and Prof Alison Gillwald, from the Nelson Mandela School of Public Governance University of Cape Town (South Africa).
Over a six month period, selected fellows will receive a monthly salary comprised between USD 2.200 and 2.500 (see item 5 of the Call) and will be expected to be based in Rio de Janeiro, where they will have a dedicated office within the FGV main building, in 190 praia de Botafogo.
Besides the fellowship programme, we are also building a Network of CyberBRICS Associated Scholars, allowing scholars interested in CyberBRICS activities and having relevant experience in the fields explored by the project to cooperate with us. Should you be interested in this latter opportunity, please feel free to send me a personal email.
Please feel free to share this message thought your networks.
*The CyberBRICS Project was developed thanks to inputs from the Higher School of Economics and the Center for New Media and Society (Russia); the Centre for Internet and Society (India); the University of Hong Kong and the Fudan University (China); and Research ICT Africa and the University of Cape Town (South Africa).

Call for Papers
Fifth Workshop on Computing within LIMITS
June 10-11, 2018
The ACM LIMITS workshop aims to foster discussion on the impact of present
and future ecological, material, energetic, and societal limits on
computing. These topics are seldom discussed in contemporary computing
research. A key aim of the workshop is to promote innovative, concrete
research, potentially of an interdisciplinary nature, that focuses on
technologies, critiques, techniques, and contexts for computing within
fundamental economic and ecological limits. A longer-term goal is to build
a community around relevant topics and research. We hope to impact society
through the design and development of computing systems in the abundant
present for use in a future of limits. A recent article
in the Communications of the ACM provides a good primer on Computing within
Limits. This year we are co-locating with ICT4S in Europe.
