   Our plenary theme is Developing the Virtual Society: Conflict in
   Adoption of Online Collaborative Networks. As virtual society develops,
   and peer technologies and practices pump in its heart, this conference
   brings together academics of all disciplines to discuss conflict in the
   adoption of collaborative networks. This is a time of confrontation
   between older forms of communication and organization and new ways of
   sharing, collaborating and acting collectively. We seek to explore
   conflicts emerging in the transition from, and resistance to,
   horizontal participatory networks, as well as conflict within
   collaborative networks. We welcome suggestions for panels and papers on
   any area relating to our theme, and particularly in the following

   Network Theory
   P2P and FLOSS methodology adoption
   FLOSS methodology
   Open source conflicts and forking
   Adoption by NGOs and the developing world
   Adoption by social movements, hacktivism, cyberconflict
   Institutional resistance to networks
   Online P2P places and conflicts

   We encourage contributions, including, but not limited to, politics,
   economics, computer science, business, psychology, sociology, and law.
