|[Nettime-nl] Internet research conferentie in maastricht (october 2002)|
From: Steve Jones <email@example.com> Internet Research 3.0: NET / WORK / THEORY, the International and Interdisciplinary Conference of the Association of Internet Researchers (AoIR), International Institute of Infonomics and University of Maastricht, The Netherlands, is taking place October 13-16, 2002. Confirmed keynoters for the conference are: 1) Dr. Detlef Eckert, Head of Unit for Policy Planning, European Commission, Directorate General Information Society 2) Professor Bill Dutton, Director, Oxford Internet Institute 3) Professor Dr. Cees J. Hamelink, University of Amsterdam 4) Professor Dr. Robin Mansell, London School of Economics Registration is open at the conference website: http://www.aoir.org/2002 Internet Research (IR) 3.0, an international and interdisciplinary conference, will feature a variety of perspectives on Internet research, in order to develop a better theoretical and pragmatic understanding of the Internet. Building on the previous well-attended international conferences, IR 3.0 will bring together prominent scholars, researchers, and practitioners from many disciplines, fields and countries for a program of presentations, panel discussions, and informal exchanges. Over 300 proposals for panels and scholarly presentations have been accepted. Additionally, there will be the following pre-conference workshops: "Intellectual Property for Internet Researchers" and "Social, Technical and Democratic Origins of the Internet." Additional information about these workshops is available at http://www.aoir/org/2002/program. A complete program will be posted soon on the conference website. This year's theme, Net/Work/Theory, is intended to encourage participants to reflect on how to theorize what we know about the Internet and on how to apply what we know theoretically in practice. The conference will be held for the first time in Europe, where intellectual environments have traditionally been a source of social and cultural theory. IR 3.0 will be hosted by the International Institute of Infonomics in the beautiful city of Maastricht in the Netherlands. As the city in which one of the key treaties of the European Union was signed, Maastricht also symbolizes a changing Europe in a changing international setting. The conference will provide opportunities to network, learn from other researchers, hear from leading players in Internet development, and enjoy the "art of fine living" of Maastricht, in the south of the Netherlands.
