Hi all,

For the third year, we are opening applications for the *Master degree
in Web Sciences in Paris*. The main purpose of this cursus is to allow
students from the fields of sciences, design, humanities to perform
interdisciplinary studies/researches on the Web and Internet, from
academics, public and private contexts.

All of you are welcome at the *open day: May 5th, 5:30pm*, at the Center
of Interdisciplinary Research

This master degree, "Interdisciplinary Approaches of the Web" (in french
"Approches Interdisciplinaires du Web", AIW) was built in order to
understand how Internet transfrom more and more aspects of our
societies, and how to participate to this evolution by building an
interdisciplinary point of view. We aim at building a teaching around
topics as the modelisation of Internet, interfaces design, services
economy, usage sociology, information spreading, e-education.
AIW Master, like all courses at CRI, are built on the principle of
"formation by doing research". Students from very different disciplines
are encouraged to work together and build projects both theoretical and
with concrete outputs.
In order to give means to its student to realize projects, AIW is in
deep relation with Fabelier's prototyping lab ( http://fabelier.org ),
hosted at the same place.

If you are a M2 student, you can follow tuesday's seminars
(5:30pm-7:30pm) and get 12 university credits (ECTS).
If you want to be full-time AIW student, you have to follow the
tuesday's seminars and do 3 interships form different disciplines
(humanities/sciences/engineering/art) and contexts
(research/industry/association/personnal projects).
If you just want to come by... you can !

Agenda of the May 5th:
- meeting teachers and former students
- open seminar (your presentations are welcomed )
- Q&A session
- inscriptions
- presentation of student club

See you there,

Antoine Mazi?res

Hello, I'm putting together a course on representations of the internet in
popular culture and I was wondering if anyone on this list may have any
suggestions for journal articles or book chapters focusing on the
portrayal of the internet (or of computer networking) in science fiction
movies and novels. Please email me off-list at dddumitr at ucalgary.ca

Thank you.
