CfP: CIRN Conference: Prato, Italy 27-29 October 2010

Filed under: "community informatics", CfPs, konferenzen — Philipp Budka @ 08:41

Tales of the Unexpected: Vision and Reality in Community Informatics

We are seeking submissions from academics, practitioners and PhD students for a conference at the Monash University Centre, Prato Italy (near Florence). The Centre for Community Networking Research, Monash, in conjunction with the Community Informatics Research Network, has held many highly successful events since 2003 in Prato, as well as associated workshops over the years, in the UK, France, and Portugal.

The conference has an increasing representation of delegates from Francophone and Spanish-speaking countries, and we welcome your attendance. While the official conference language is English, if there are sufficient papers for either language, specific sessions will be arranged.
The Prato campus provides an exceptional environment for academics, students, practitioners or policy-makers to exchange ideas. We emphasize participatory processes in the conference. The Centre is just off the main piazza of a small Tuscan town and is close to Italian transport hubs.

CfP Networked Democracy (Cluj, June ’10)

Filed under: CfPs, konferenzen — axel @ 14:27

A three day symposium to be held at Babeş-Bolyai University, Cluj, Romania, 25-27 June 2010
From the CfP, Deadline Dec 7:

New media innovations in participatory politics
Democratic politics worldwide are increasingly being conducted and re-configured through the domain of digital communications networks. The socio-technical developments, such as Web 2.0, facilitating these media-saturated public spheres are in little doubt. What is highly contested however is the interpretation of what these profound changes offer for democratic governance in the twenty-first century. At its heart is the recognition that these new media networks are themselves the crucial site for a historical confrontation between opposing political and/or business interests and discourses intent upon forging new forms of social relations.

University of Pforzheim

GOR 10: Brief portrait

The focus of the General Online Research (GOR) is the discussion of basic research, innovative developments, and practical experiences in the field of online research. Online research covers a) all methods, instruments and theories that are dealing with the collection of data via online networks and b) effects of online applications and technologies on all levels of society. That involves mobile communication as well. The annual GOR conference involves research mainly within the social and behavioral sciences. GOR 10 supports the exchange of knowledge not only in an interdisciplinary way, but also between researchers and practitioners as well as between universities and companies.

CfP: EMCSR 2010

Filed under: CfPs, kommunikation, konferenzen, termine — Philipp Budka @ 06:28

April 6 – 9, 2010
University of Vienna

organized by the Austrian Society for Cybernetic Studies
in cooperation with the
International Federation for Systems Research

Cybernetics – „the study of communication and control in the animal and the machine“ (N.Wiener) – has recently returned to the forefront, not only in cyberspace and cyberpunk, but, even more important, contributing to the corroboration of various scientific theories. Additionally, an ever increasing number of research areas, including social and economic theories, theoretical biology, ecology, computer science, and robotics draw on ideas from second order cybernetics. Artificial intelligence, evolved directly from cybernetics, has not only technological and economic, but also important social impacts. With a marked trend towards interdisciplinary cooperation and global perspectives, this important role of cybernetics is expected to be further strengthened over the next years.

Since 1972, the biennial European Meetings on Cybernetics and Systems Research (EMCSR) have served as a forum for discussion of converging ideas and new aspects of different scientific disciplines. As on previous occasions, a number of sessions providing wide coverage of the rapid developments will be arranged, complemented with daily plenary meetings, where eminent speakers will present latest research results.

Call for Papers: „Digital Media Technologies Revisited: Theorising social relations, interactions and communication“

Filed under: kommunikation, konferenzen, theorie — Philipp Budka @ 17:13

A two-day conference co-organised by:
the ECREA Digital Culture & Communication (DCC) section,
the DGPuK Computer-Mediated Communication (CMC) section and
the DGPuK Media Sociology (MS) section
with support from the Centre for Material Digital Culture (DMDC),
University of Sussex, UK
and the COST 298: Participation in the Broadband Society network

Place: University of the Arts, Berlin, Germany

Dates: Nov. 20-21, 2009


This two-day conference on ‚Digital Technologies Revisited‘ aims to understand contemporary developments in digital media and digital media theory by looking backwards as well as forwards. We set out to explore an in-between time: a time, when much of the hype concerning digital media has died down, much research material has been gathered and analyzed and quite a bit about the possibilities and limitations of digital media (especially in comparison to older media forms) has been understood.

Please submit an extended abstract (700 words max.) by the 31st of May 2009 (and clearly stating which topic section you would like to submit this to) to:

„Deep Search“ Präsentationen der Tagung online

Filed under: konferenzen — Schlagwörter: , , — astridma @ 13:05

„Deep Search“ befasst sich mit den sozialen und politischen Dimensionen unserer Navigation durch die Tiefen des Wissens. Wir wollen den Vorgang der Datenkategorisierung untersuchen und fragen, was es bedeutet, die Beziehung zur Welt über digitale Suchtechnologien herzustellen. Jenseits von futuristischen Anwendungen und komplexen Rechenvorgängen verbirgt sich in kognitiven Technologien, die spezifisch für Ergebnisse in einem begrenzten Bezugsrahmen entwickelt werden, eine politische Philosophie in einem scheinbar neutralen Code. In der täglichen Wirklichkeit des Informationsüberflusses kommt es darauf an, derartige Setzungen als solche zu erkennen, und zu begreifen, dass Hierarchien nicht auf wundersame Weise von der Natur selbst hervorgebracht werden. Unscheinbare Dienstprogramme, die sich unauffällig in die Abläufe unserer täglichen Arbeit einfügen, verändern unsere Wahrnehmung und spinnen die Fäden im Gewebe unserer kognitiven Wirklichkeit.

Für zuhause gebliebene gibt’s jetzt die Vorträge online 🙂

Call for Papers Internet Research 10.0 Internet: Critical

Filed under: konferenzen — Schlagwörter: , — Philipp Budka @ 08:13

The 10th Annual International and Interdisciplinary Conference of the
Association of Internet Researchers (AoIR)

October 7-11, 2009
Hilton Milwaukee City Center
Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA

As the Internet has become an increasingly ubiquitous and mundane medium, the analytical shortcomings of the division between the online and the offline have become evident. Shifting the focus to the fundamental intermeshing of online and offline spaces, networks, economies, politics, locations, agencies, and ethics, Internet: Critical invites scholars to consider material frameworks, infrastructures, and exchanges as enabling constraints in terms of online phenomena. Furthermore, the conference invites considerations of Internet research as a critical practice and theory, its intellectual histories, investments, and social reverberations. How do we, as Internet researchers, connect our work to social concerns or cultural
developments both local and global, and what kinds of agency may we exercise in the process? What kinds of redefinitions of the political (in terms of networks, micropolitics, participation, lifestyles, resistant or critical practices) are necessary when conceptualizing Internet cultures within the current geopolitical and geotechnological climate?

To this end, we call for papers, panel proposals, and presentations from any discipline, methodology, and community, and from conjunctions of multiple disciplines, methodologies and academic communities that
address the conference themes, including papers that intersect and/or interconnect the following:

  • critical moments, elements, practices
  • critical theories, methods, constructs
  • critical voices, histories, texts
  • critical networks, junctures, spaces
  • critical technologies, artifacts, failures
  • critical ethics, interventions, alternatives.

Sessions at the conference will be established that specifically address the conference themes, and we welcome innovative, exciting, and unexpected takes on those themes. We also welcome submissions on topics that address social, cultural, political, legal, aesthetic, economic, and/or philosophical aspects of the Internet beyond the conference themes. In all cases, we welcome disciplinary and interdisciplinary submissions as well as international collaborations from both AoIR and non-AoIR members.


We seek proposals for several different kinds of contributions. We welcome proposals for traditional academic conference PAPERS and we also welcome proposals for ROUNDTABLE SESSIONS that will focus on discussion and interaction among conference delegates, as well as organized PANEL PROPOSALS that present a coherent group of papers on a single theme.


Call for Papers Released: 15 November 2008
Submissions Due: 1 February 2009
Notification: 15 March 2009


All papers and presentations in this session will be evaluated in a standard blind peer review.


– PAPERS (individual or multi-author) – submit abstract of 600-800 words

-FULL PAPERS (OPTIONAL): For submitters requiring peer review of full
papers, manuscripts of up to 8,000 words will be accepted for review.
These will be reviewed and judged separately from abstract submissions

– PANEL PROPOSALS – submit a 600-800 word description of the panel
theme, plus 250-500 word abstract for each paper or presentation

– ROUNDTABLE PROPOSALS – submit a statement indicating the nature of the roundtable discussion and interaction Papers, presentations and panels will be selected from the submitted proposals on the basis of multiple blind peer review, coordinated and overseen by the Program Chair. Each individual is invited to submit a proposal for 1 paper or 1 presentation. A person may also propose a panel session, which may include a second paper that they are presenting. An individual may also submit a roundtable proposal. You may be listed as co-author on additional papers as long as you are not presenting them.


Selected papers from the conference will be published in a special issue of the journal Information, Communication & Society, edited by Caroline Haythornwaite and Lori Kendall. Authors selected for submission for this issue have already been contacted prior to the conference.

All papers submitted to the conference system will be available to AoIR members after the conference.


On October 7, 2009, there will be a limited number of pre-conference workshops which will provide participants with in-depth, hands-on and/or creative opportunities. We invite proposals for these pre-conference workshops. Local presenters are encouraged to propose workshops that will invite visiting researchers into their labs or studios or locales. Proposals should be no more than 1000 words, and should clearly outline the purpose, methodology, structure, costs, equipment and minimal attendance required, as well as explaining its relevance to the conference as a whole. Proposals will be accepted if they demonstrate
that the workshop will add significantly to the overall program in terms of thematic depth, hands on experience, or local opportunities for scholarly or artistic connections. These proposals and all inquiries
regarding pre-conference proposals should be submitted as soon as possible to both the Conference Chair and Program Chair and no later than March 31, 2009.

Suchmaschinen im analogen Zeitalter – Symposion in Wien

Filed under: konferenzen — Schlagwörter: — astridma @ 07:22

Symposion in der Wienbibliothek im Rathaus
Do-Sa 9.-11.10.2008 

Das Internet-Zeitalter beginnt seine Vorgeschichte zu schreiben: An Stelle der „politischen Haupt- und Staatsaktionen“ rücken zunehmend Medien ins Zentrum des historischen Interesses, es werden Aufschreibesysteme, Datenverarbeitung und Übertragungstechnologien untersucht. Zu diesen Forschungen möchte das Symposion einen Beitrag leisten, indem es sich mit jenen Einrichtungen, Personen und Techniken beschäftigt, die als „Vorläufer“ heutiger Suchmaschinen betrachtet werden können, seien es Staatshandbücher, Diener, Bibliothekskataloge, Fragebögen oder Zeitungskomptoire. Welche strukturellen Ähnlichkeiten gibt es zwischen diesen vergangenen und den heutigen Suchmaschinen? Welche Unterschiede lassen sich feststellen? Welche Utopien knüpften sich an die Suchmaschinen des analogen Zeitalters? Welche Formen von Kontrolle ermöglichten sie? – Diese und ähnliche Fragen sollen im Rahmen des Symposions behandelt werden. Ein solcher Zugang verspricht, nicht nur neue Erkenntnisse über die Medien der Vergangenheit zu liefern, sondern auch die Analysen der gegenwärtigen medialen Lage zu vertiefen.
