Call for Papers

Internet Research 5.0: Ubiquity?

International and Interdisciplinary Conference of the Association of Internet Researchers
University of Sussex, England, 19-22 September 2004

Deadline for submissions: 2 February 2004

The internet seems to be at once everywhere and invisible but simultaneously it structures only a fraction of the communications of the total global community. It can facilitate greater interaction, understanding and political activism; being used at the same time to exclude, destroy and exploit. The much cited ubiquity of the internet needs to be examined in both the contexts in which it is accepted and those in which it is contested.

The theme of ‘ubiquity?’ addresses the following questions: Is the internet everywhere? How and where does the internet appear and act in technical, social, political, or cultural contexts? What does it mean to have access and who does and doesn’t have it? How does the presence of the internet affect individuals, communities, families, governments, societies and nation-states? What are the implications of ‘internet everywhere’? Submissions addressing these and other questions regarding the internet are welcome.
