> The Internet has been a rapidly evolving phenomenon, so much so that we
> may talk about generations of the Internet. With everything moving faster
> in 'Internet time,' we have arguably spanned many technological Internet
> generations within a single human generation: from the birth of computing
> to the first online communications; from the beginnings of email to the
> enriched worlds of chat, virtual worlds and mobile text messaging; from
> the workplace to home and school; from optional to all-but-mandatory; and
> from mainframe to desktop to laptop to mobile devices.
> We can also talk about contextual Internet generations, from the early
> pioneers who count themselves among those communicating online before the
> 1980s; to the early adopters of the 1980s in university and proprietary
> systems; to latecomers finding the need to adopt computing and technology
> use as part of their daily work; to the current and coming generations
> that will not know a time without a computer in the household, a mobile
> phone in their hand, and a lap- or palmtop and an MP3 player an essential
> part of their daily wear.
> This massive change in technologies, and in work and social practices
> suggests many avenues of interest for Internet research.
> We call for papers from a wide perspective of disciplines, methodologies,
> and communities. We invite papers that address the theme of Internet
> Generations including TOPICS such as:
> - Histories of the Internet: human, social, technical, and/or cultural
> stories and histories
> - Internet use by generation, e.g., by era of technology, by children and
> seniors, or by age of user, etc.
> - Individual, group, organizational, or community use, adoption, or
> diffusion of the Internet and its practices
> - Development in use of languages, new vocabularies, social roles, rules,
> and etiquette
> - Societal impacts of and on the Internet and its evolution
> - Perspectives on the Internet and social change in a changing world
> - Internet expansion across divides, borders, nationalities, etc.
> - Mapping the course of Internet connectivity
> - Prospects for the future: Next generation Internet
> We invite submissions for papers, panels, and demonstrations of work on
> topics related to the conference theme of Internet Generations. Sessions
> at the conference will be established that specifically address the
> conference theme. We particularly call for innovative, exciting, and
> unexpected takes on the conference theme. We also welcome submissions on
> topics that address social, cultural, political, economic, and/or
> aesthetic aspects of the Internet beyond the conference theme. In all
> cases, we welcome disciplinary and interdisciplinary submissions as well
> as international collaborations from both AoIR and non-AoIR members.
