The purpose of this conference is to bring together academics from a

between terrorism and new media, particularly the Internet, to truly
multi-disciplinary scrutiny. The one-day conference (Wednesday, 8
September) will feature a series of panels and a number of plenary
addresses. The conference will be followed on Thursday, 9 September by a
workshop devoted to the robust debate and analysis of currently ‘hot’
topics in the realm of terrorism and the Internet, particularly the
question of the role of the Internet in processes of radicalisation.
