CFP - INFORMATICS GOES GLOBAL: METHODS AT A CROSSROADS

INFORMATICS GOES GLOBAL: METHODS AT A CROSSROADS
Indiana University, Bloomington
March 3-5. 2006

CALL FOR PAPERS AND FOR CONFERENCE PARTICIPATION

CONFERENCE OVERVIEW

How can studies of IT in use become worldwide, cohesive endeavors? What are the opportunities and challenges in broadening the Informatics research agenda? We invite you to the Indiana University School of Informatics in Bloomington for a two-day conference to address these issues. The program will feature paragon research in globalizing research on information technology while addressing methodological pitfalls.

AREAS OF FOCUS

The conference will address IT globalism in four areas, two in methodology and two on cases. The areas of methodology are (1) historiography and (2) ethnography. Specific methodological issues include but are not limited to the following:

The two cases are (1) free/libre and open source software (F/LOSS) and (2) intellectual property rights. Again, possible presentation topics include but are not limited to ethnographic or historical research on:

You can participate in two ways: as a presenter/panelist or as a participant. All participation except for the opening plenary will be by invitation only; see the instructions below for submission procedures.

SCHEDULE AND PROCESS FOR PROSPECTIVE PRESENTERS/PANELISTS

We invite submissions for papers on the four areas listed above. Submissions will be reviewed in two rounds: abstract and full paper rounds. We anticipate that abstracts that are accepted will normally lead to accepted full papers for inclusion in the conference.

December 5, 2005: Abstracts due (about 500 words)

December 15, 2005: Authors notified of conference response to abstract

February 1, 2006: Full papers due (to be made available at the conference)

In addition to the usual abstract content--an overview of the research problem, argument, evidence, and method--please also include a statement of how your work fits into the broader agenda of globalizing informatics research.

We anticipate conference papers will be published, either in a proceedings volume from Indiana University Press in a new series on Informatics or in a special journal issue-e.g., The Information Society. In addition to consideration as a panelist/presenter, abstract submission also ensures priority consideration for conference participation.

SCHEDULE AND PROCESS FOR ALL PROSPECTIVE PARTICIPANTS

Because of space limitations, conference participation will be by invitation only. If you are interested in participating in the conference, please outline your interest in and perspective on making informatics research more global. Such expressions of interest should be about 200 words and should be submitted to David Hakken (dhakken@indiana.edu) by February 1, 2006.
