THE THIRD INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON TECHNOLOGY, KNOWLEDGE AND SOCIETY
Cambridge University, UK, 9-12 January 2007
The conference will take a broad and cross-disciplinary approach to technology in society. With a particular focus on digital information and communications technologies, the conference will address: human usability, technologies for citizenship and community participation, and learning technologies. Participants will include researchers, teachers and practitioners whose interests are either technical or humanistic, or whose work crosses over between the technological, applied and social sciences.
As well as an impressive line up of international main speakers, the conference will also include numerous paper, workshop and colloquium presentations. I would particularly like to invite you to respond to the conference call for papers. Presenters may choose to submit written papers for consideration before or after the conference in the fully refereed International Journal of Technology, Knowledge and Society. If you are unable to attend the conference in person, virtual registrations are also available which allow you to submit a paper for refereeing and possible publication in the journal, and give you access to the online version of the journal.
The deadline for the next round in the call for papers (a title and short abstract) is 31 October 2006. Proposals are reviewed within one week of submission.
Full details of the conference, including an online call for papers form, are to be found at the conference website – http://www.Technology-Conference.com
We look forward to receiving your proposals and hope you will be able to join us in Cambridge in January 2007.
