(Virtual) Community Informatics Workshop

held in conjunction with
the International Conference on Information Systems (ICIS) 2002
Barcelona, Spain
Sunday December 15, 2002

We cordially invite you to participate in the (Virtual) Community
Informatics Workshop, held the day before ICIS 2002.  Researchers,
students and practitioners interested in the areas of community
informatics and virtual communities are welcome to submit either a
position statement or a full paper for presentation.

(Virtual) Community Informatics lies at two cross-roads: bringing
together people concerned with Local and Virtual or On-line
Communities, and bringing together the researchers and practitioners
(developers, leaders and participants) in these two domains.
Community Informatics is the study of information and communications
technology to support communities and their processes. (Virtual)
Community Informatics promotes the cross-fertilization found at this
cross-roads, bringing together researchers and practitioners from
many varied disciplines.
