Dear Chris and all,
On behalf of Lisbeth Klastup (ITU / Local Chair) and Brian Loader (York
University / Programme Chair), I'm very pleased to forward the first CFP for
next year's conference -
Internet Research 9.0: Rethinking Communities, Rethinking Place
Internet Research 9.0 will be hosted by the IT University of Copenhagen, in
conjunction with the Faculty of Humanities, University of Copenhagen.
The conference takes place October 15th to October 19th 2008.
New forms of netbased communities are now emerging, distributed on various
websites and services, and making use of several media platforms and genres
to stay connected. Now, as mobile and location-based technologies are
reintroducing "place" as an important aspect in the formation of communal
and social activities, it is time to consider and rethink the concept of
online or virtual communities. Not forgetting the lessons we have learned
from studying the early virtual communities, how do we describe, analyse,
theorise and design the communities and social formations of the early 21st
Submissions that consider Internet-mediated communities, groups, networks
and organisations, and social experiences of place are encouraged. As
always, submissions concerning all other forms of Internet research are very
About the venue: The IT University of Copenhagen (ITU), founded 1999, offers
a variety of programmes in an international atmosphere. Research and
teaching are based on a broad approach to IT, from a computer science, a
business, and an arts and humanities perspective.
Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark (pop. 1.7 million), has lots to offer in
terms of history, culture and entertainment. Everyone speaks English.
Copenhagen is easily accessible by all major airlines and a popular tourist
city. We advise you to book your flight and hotel well in advance.
