=================== BERLINÂEARLY STAGE RESEARCHERS COLLOQUIUM 2014 ===================

  Early stage researchers (Ph.D. candidates and post-docs) from all disciplinesÂ
  are invitedÂto push aheadÂwith the discussion revolvingÂaroundÂInternet research.

  Conference: 09 October 2014 in Berlin

  EXTENDED Submission Deadline: 17 August 2014:

  Online submission via:Â



This yearâs colloquium will consist of two thematically focused tracks.ÂWe cordially invite you to submit your research projects on one of theÂfollowing two topics:

In the near future, we will be paying for movies according to the size of the screen that it is displayed on, as stated by Jeffrey Katzenberg, CEO ofÂDreamWorks Animation.ÂWhether that will actually happen remains to be seen, however it is clear that business models are changing rapidly due to the digital switch and correspondingly changing user expectations and behaviours. In the ESRC we will talk about how audiovisual media (e.g. film, animation, games, television etc) can cope with these dynamic circumstances. In specific on how new business models occur that adjust to the changing viewing behavior of users. What implications does this have on copyright legislation and on data protection as well as on the norms and regulations that emerge outside the legal realm? We regard this theme from a multidisciplinary perspective, and welcome contributions from the area of media studies, law, social sciences and economics. During the session, academics and people working in the field will participate in the discussion and provide a practical angle.ÂÂ MORE

Privacy debates in the age of the Internet are prominent focal points of all the challenges arising from increased network connection, new data generation and collection techniques and conflicting cultural values. In the ESRC, we want to explore the governance of privacy works on a global scale. What are the global governance challenges of privacy? How is privacy understood and perceived in different fora and what does that mean for governing privacy? We welcome perspectives from all disciplines and from theoretical and empirical backgrounds to contribute to our debate on governance and privacy. During the session there will be very brief five-minute inputs by the authors of the papers and ample of room for discussion and the generation of new ideas. ÂÂMORE
