> We have just signed a contract with an international publisher to edit a book on "Using Community Informatics to
> Transform Regions". We will be selecting the best papers from the ITiRA 2002 Conference at CQU Rockhampton, Queensland, Australia, 27 - 29 August 2002 to form the basis of this book. If you are interested in contributing a chapter to this book, please submit an abstract of your paper to ITiRA2002
> before March 8 (details can be found at: http://itira.cqu.edu.au ). 
> 
> The overall purpose of the Conference is to examine strategies, research and applications for the introduction and use of Information Technology in Regional Areas.  Current experience indicates that regional areas are lagging behind cities in the adoption of IT and that there are specific issues
> relating to the use of IT in regions.
> 
> ITiRA will include a mixture of refereed papers as well as non-refereed case studies and applications. Whilst seeking papers and case studies in the broad arena of IT in regions, ITiRA currently has eight major track themes: 
> 1 - Community Informatics; 
> 2 - IT for Regional Health; 
> 3 - IT for Regional Media and Communication; 
> 4 - IT for Regional Industry and e-Economy; 
> 5 - IT for Regional Education and Training; 
> 6 - IT for Developing Countries and Indigenous Peoples; 
> 7 - IT For Regional Culture and Media;
> 8 - e-Democracy.
> 
> Each track will consist of a keynote address, refereed papers, case studies and reports of applications. The conference is designed for Community Leaders, IT Managers & Project Leaders, Funders, Policymakers, Researchers, Government Officials and Regional Community Development Groups.
> 
> Papers can be submitted to either the refereed Research Papers Section or the Case Study and Applications Section. Research Papers can be no longer than 5000 words. Case studies and Reports of Applications can be considerably shorter.
