Call for Papers

CFP: BROADENING THE BAND. International and Interdisciplinary Conference of the Association of Internet Researchers in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, October 16-19.

This year's theme encourages wide participation from diverse disciplines, communities, and points of view. In a cultural sense, the theme calls attention to the need to examine access, inclusion and exclusion in online communities. What role do race, gender, class, ethnicity, language, sexual orientation, age, geography, and other factors play in the degree of online participation? What are the indicators of meaningful participation? In a technical sense, the theme points to the development of broadband, wireless and post-internet networks and applications that are currently coming on-stream including community, private, public as well as national research networks.

Deadline for submissions: March 1, 2003

I'll be submitting a paper on e-textiles and I'd like to organise a panel on something related to ubiquitous or wireless computing. If you have any ideas or want to participate - please contact me.
