Connected Life 2017: Digital Inequalities

A multidisciplinary Internet research conference at the University of Oxford

Monday, 19 June 2017

Connected Life 2017 is a student-run day-long conference dedicated to igniting multidisciplinary exchanges and showcasing exciting Internet research. We welcome students and faculty from all departments, including (but not limited to) business, policy, computer science, economics, education, history, international relations, law, linguistics, literature, media and communication, medicine, philosophy, politics, psychology, and sociology. Like last year’s conference, Connected Life 2017, organised by students at the Oxford Internet Institute, will foster collaborations within and beyond Oxford in pursuit of an enhanced understanding of the Internet and its multifaceted effects upon society.

We invite the submission of proposals for presentations on ongoing or recent research from individual authors or multiple contributors. Proposals that address our key thematic questions are particularly encouraged: What is digital inequality? Where does it occur? How does it impact our connected life? Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

Inequality
Digital Divides
Politics and Public Policy
Science and Technology
Teaching and Education
Gender and Identity
Race, ethnicity, religion, and culture
Digital Humanities
Cybersecurity, Surveillance, and Censorship
Big Data Methods
Entrepreneurship and Innovation
Virtual Markets and Economies
Internet Infrastructure and Protocols
Social Networking
History of the Internet
Mobile Technologies
Media and Journalism
The above categories are intended only to provide a general direction for what can be discussed. We welcome submissions on any research topic related to the Internet; if you have questions about this, please contact a member of the organising team.

Feel free to approach us with your ideas for how you would like to present your work, which may include visualization fairs, symposiums, panels, and workshops, as well as more traditional lectures.

Submissions for oral presentations should be in the form of either an abstract or blog post of 400-600 words. Please submit by Tuesday, 28 February 2017. We encourage blog posts that can be published on this website and generate discussion before and after the conference; however, the choice of a blog post or traditional abstract will not affect acceptance.

All abstracts and blog posts will be reviewed by a committee of students and faculty from the Oxford Internet Institute. Notification of acceptances will be communicated by 1 April 2017.

Registration will open in early April.

We look forward to receiving and reviewing your submissions! If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to email us at connectedlife@oii.ox.ac.uk.
