> CALL FOR PAPERS
>
> IR 7.0: INTERNET CONVERGENCES
> International and Interdisciplinary Conference of the Association of
> Internet Researchers
>
> Brisbane, Australia
> 28-30 September 2006
>
> Pre-Conference Workshops: 27 September 2006
>
> INTERNET CONVERGENCES
>
> The Internet works as an arena of convergence. Physically dispersed  
> and
> marginalized people (re)find themselves online for the sake of
> sustaining and extending community. International and  
> interdisciplinary
> teams now collaborate in new ways. Diverse cultures engage one another
> via CMC. These technologies relocate and refocus capital, labor and
> immigration, and they open up new possibilities for political,
> potentially democratizing, forms of discourse. Moreover, these
> technologies themselves converge in multiple ways, e.g. in
> Internet-enabled mobile phones, in Internet-based telephony, and in
> computers themselves as "digital appliances" that conjoin  
> communication
> and multiple media forms. These technologies also facilitate
> fragmentations with greater disparities between the information-haves
> and have-nots, between winners and losers in the shifting labor and
> capital markets, and between individuals and communities. Additionally
> these technologies facilitate information filtering that reinforces,
> rather than dialogically challenges, narrow and extreme views.
>
> CALL FOR PAPERS
>
> Our conference theme invites papers and presentations based on  
> empirical
> research, theoretical analysis and everything in between that explore
> the multiple ways the Internet acts in both converging and fragmenting
> ways - physical, cultural, technological, political, social - on  
> local,
> regional, and global scales.
>
> Without limiting possible proposals, topics of interest include:
>
> - Theoretical and practical models of the Internet
> - Internet convergence, divergence and fragmentation
> - Networked flows of information, capital, labor, etc.
> - Migrations and diasporas online
> - Identity, community and global communication
> - Regulation and control (national and global)
> - Internet-based development and other economic issues
> - Digital art and aesthetics
> - Games and gaming on the Internet
> - The Net generation
> - E-Sectors, e.g. e-health, e-education, e-business
>
> We call for papers, panel proposals, and presentations from any
> discipline, methodology, and community that address the theme of
> Internet Convergence. We particularly call for innovative,  
> exciting, and
> unexpected takes on and interrogations of the conference theme.  
> However,
> we always welcome submissions on any topics that address social,
> cultural, political, economic, and/or aesthetic aspects of the  
> Internet
> and related Internet technologies. We are equally interested in
> interdisciplinary proposals as well as proposals from within specific
> disciplines.
>
> SUBMISSIONS
>
> We seek proposals for several different kinds of contributions. We
> welcome proposals for traditional academic conference papers, but we
> also encourage proposals for creative or aesthetic presentations that
> are distinct from a traditional written 'paper'. We welcome proposals
> for roundtable sessions that will focus on discussion and interaction
> among conference delegates, and we also welcome organized panel
> proposals that present a coherent group of papers on a single theme.
>
> This year AoIR will also be using an alternative presentation  
> format in
> which a dozen or so participants who wish to present a short  
> overview of
> their work to stimulate debate will gather together in a plenary  
> session
> involving short presentations (no more than 5 minutes) and extended
> discussion. All papers and presentations in this session will be
> reviewed in the normal manner. Further information will be  
> available via
> the conference submission website.
>
> - PAPERS (individual or multi-author) - submit abstract of 500-750  
> words
>
> - SHORT PRESENTATIONS - submit abstract of 500-750 words
>
> - CREATIVE OR AESTHETIC PRESENTATIONS - submit abstract of 500-750  
> words
>
> - PANELS - submit a 250-500 word description of the panel theme (and
> abstracts of the distinct papers or presentations)
>
> - ROUNDTABLE PROPOSALS - submit a 250-500 word 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 person is invited to submit a
> proposal for 1 paper or 1 presentation. People may also propose a  
> panel
> of papers or presentations, of which their personal paper or
> presentation must be a part. You may submit an additional
> paper/presentation of which you are the co-author as long as you  
> are not
> presenting twice. You may submit a roundtable proposal as well.
>
> Detailed information about submission and review is available at the
> conference submission website http://conferences.aoir.org. All  
> proposals
> must be submitted electronically through this site.
>
> PUBLICATION OF PAPERS
>
> All papers presented at the conference are eligible for publication in
> the Internet Research Annual, on the basis of competitive selection  
> and
> review of full papers. Additionally, several publishing opportunities
> are expected to be available through journals, again based on
> peer-review of full papers. Details on the website.
>
> GRADUATE STUDENTS
>
> Graduate students are strongly encouraged to submit proposals. Any
> student paper is eligible for consideration for the AoIR graduate
> student award. Students wishing to be a candidate for the Student  
> Award
> must also send a final paper by 31 July 2006.
>
> PRE-CONFERENCE WORKSHOPS
>
> Prior to the conference, 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 inquires regarding pre-conference proposals should be submitted as
> soon as possible to the Conference Chair and no later than 31 March
> 2006.
