>  *   connectivity and access
>  *   space, location and mobile technologies
>  *   technology, networks and attachments
>  *   technology and the body
>  *   technologies of the self
>  *   technology, regulation and ethics

> conference.
> On 18 October 2012, there will be a limited number of pre-conference
> workshops and symposia that will provide participants with in-depth,
> hands-on and/or creative opportunities. We invite proposals for these
> pre-conference workshops. Local presenters are encouraged to propose
> workshops that will invite visiting researchers into their labs or studios
> or locales. Proposals should be no more than 1,000 words, and should
> clearly outline the purpose, methodology, structure, costs, equipment and
> minimal attendance required, as well as explaining its relevance to the
> conference as a whole. Proposals will be accepted if they demonstrate that
> the workshop will add significantly to the overall program in terms of

> or artistic connections. These proposals and all inquiries regarding
> pre-conference proposals should be submitted as soon as possible to the
