5th European Symposium on Gender & ICT
"Digital Cultures: Participation - Empowerment - Diversity"

(Univerity of Graz/A), Chat Garcia Ramilo (APC/Manila)

*Information Society with its variety of new information and
communication media offers many new options to participate in today's
social, cultural, political and economic activities. However, chances
are still distributed unequally, e.g. by class, ethnicity, age - and by
gender. Access to and the ability to use information and communication
technology (ICT) are necessary prerequisites for participation. On top
of this, involvement in ICT design is a highly prestigious activity.
On the 5th European Gender and ICT Symposium we will take a closer look
at the complex interdependences between gender and ICT. We will explore
ways to increase appreciation of diversity in design and use and to
strengthen empowerment and participation by means of ICT. This
conference, the fifth in a row of symposia held in Europe since 2003,
traditionally provides a meeting point for researchers from various
disciplines and research schools dealing with gender and ICT. We invite
you to share your experiences!
