Call for Participation
Academic Writing and Publishing Workshop

Wednesday, 15th October 2008

in conjunction with AoIR IR 9.0

Organisers: Marcus Foth, Mia Consalvo, Greg Hearn

In response to feedback from AoIR members as well as the publications  
working group and the executive committee of AoIR, we invite you to  
this workshop on academic writing and publishing. It provides an  
opportunity for early and mid career internet researchers to discuss  
and improve academic writing skills in a peer support environment and  
identify suitable publication outlets. The workshop will be a forum to  
share experiences and tips and tricks on how to interact with editors  
and deal with review reports. You will have a chance to discuss your  
own draft papers with other participants and the organisers, and you  
will hear inside stories from:

Nick Jankowski, co-editor of New Media & Society
Mark Lorenzen, executive editor of Industry and Innovation
Brian Loader, co-editor of Information, Communication & Society
Susana Tosca, co-editor of Game Studies

No workshop papers are required to attend, but we encourage you to  
bring drafts on the day for us to work with. If you would like to  
participate in this workshop, please register for IR 9.0 and send an  
email to Marcus Foth at m.foth at qut.edu.au so we can keep a tally on  
numbers for the workshop.
