CyberConflict Workshop - 9 May 2007
to be held at the Mary Ward House Conference Centre, Tavistock Place, London
The Cyberconflict workshop, which will be the first of its kind to be held in the United Kingdom, will bring together contributors from a variety of disciplines - such as information technology, politics, sociology, media and law - to share their perspectives on this important and highly topical subject. We are interested in cyberconflict in broader terms (see for example http://www.p2foundation.net/Cyberconflict.)
Issues of cyberattacks, internet security, censorship, surveillance, identity and community will all be addressed. We are also keen to discuss the use of the internet as a tool by ethnoreligious and sociopolitical groups, varying from terrorist movements (e.g. Al Qaeda's recruitment tactics on the web) to its use by the anti-globalisation and anti-war movements. The programme will also cover the activities of independent media and blogging and the alternative modes of production and governance of peer-to-peer networking.
If your current research falls within these parameters, and if you are interested in presenting a paper, please contact Athina Karatzogianni, who chairs the Programme Committee at: [email protected] Abstracts should be sent to Athina by 15th February.
