Dear AOIR colleagues,

First call for papers for the Mobile, digital and social media stream
for ANZCA 2011 – Communication on the Edge: Shifting Boundaries and
Identities 6-8 July 2011. The University of Waikato, Hamilton, New

FULL PAPERS DUE FOR REFEREEING: Monday 7th February 2011

Stream Coordinators: Clare Lloyd and Scott Rickard

Digital communication is impacting on our everyday lives, constantly
shifting and changing our personal relationships, and enhancing
opportunities to interact with others. Or does it? What challenges lie
ahead in an era when manufacturers dominate the market place, and
challenge our conceptions of our digital everyday lives with new apps,
services and devices? And in what ways are we adopting, adapting, and
appropriating technologies to improve our everyday communications? How
are social participation sites challenging our personal understanding of
risk, control and privacy? Or perhaps our identities are being
challenged by the ubiquitous camera; reconceptualising our notions of
who we are, and our locations both physical and virtual? How are
marginalised communities and organisations engaging with digital
communications; is the digital divide widening or narrowing?

The mobile, digital and social media stream welcomes submissions that
address the conference theme, and or contemporary issues in relation to
mobile communications, mobile media, social media, and digital media.
