C&T 2019 Community Track Submission

The 9th International Conference on Communities & Technologies
— Transforming Communities —

3-7 June 2019, TU Wien, Vienna, Austria

The biennial Communities and Technologies (C&T) conference is the premier international forum for stimulating scholarly debate and disseminating research on the complex connections between communities – in their multiple forms – and information and communication technologies.

Case Studies of the Community Track are solicited from a wide variety of non-academic actors working with technologies to effect community relations in the making, un-making, and re-making of communities. The Community Track provides an outlet for non-academic actors to present to conference delegates, e.g., their mission, approach, project, intervention, initiative, and/or campaign. We call for participation in the Community Track by actors including (but not limited to) civic society organisations, NGOs, non-profits, neighborhood associations or communities, schools, cooperatives, social enterprises, movements, and other interest groups as well as hackers, activists, journalists, social entrepreneurs, and other community practitioners.

To apply for the Community Track please provide information via the following form on how to contact you; on your organization or initiative; and on the specific project, intervention, initiative or campaign that you want to present to conference delegates. While only a few fields are marked as required, please do provide as much and as clear information as you can to assist us in evaluating your submission.
