INTERNET RULES! - Call for Papers for the AoIR Internet conference is open

18.02.2016

+++At the 17th Internet conference AoIR hundreds of international Internet reseachers, activists and artists will gather in autumn in Berlin to debate the topic “Internet Rules!”.

+++You are now able to submit scientific and experimental papers and event proposals (all in English) on http://www.aoir.org. Submissions are open until 01.03.2016.

The 17th annual conference of the Association of Internet Researchers, a transdisciplinary Internet conference ​will take place at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Germany on 5 – 8 October 2016.

You are cordially invited to submit your proposals for papers, panels, workshops, roundtables, and other experimental events for the AoIR 2016 via the AoIR website http://www.aoir.org. This year the Alexander von Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society and the Hans-Bredow-Institute for Media Research have been announced as conference hosts.

The conference will be opened by a Keynote speech by José van Dijck, president of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) and former Dean of the University of Amsterdam. Her most significant publications include “Mediated Memory in the Digital Age” and “The Culture of Connectivity. A Critical History of Social Media”.

AoIR 2016 will emphasise the regulation of the Internet at various conceptual levels. The conference theme “Internet Rules!” addresses the significance of the codes and rules that frame the Internet, as well as their playful circumvention, from technical protocols and popular platforms to the emerging, established, and contested conventions of online communities.

Who are the actors in both the practices of rule-making and rule-breaking, what are their motivations and resources, and how can their power relations and communicative figurations be described? How does the Internet influence the proliferation of the values that its platforms, services and infrastructures embody, and what spaces of creative resistance persist? How do various forms of technical, social, and cultural hacking subvert these orders?

The committee extends a special invitation to junior researchers and practitioners, who have previously not participated in an Internet Research event to submit proposals.

Topics could include but are not limited to:

- coordination and rule-making online
- media, culture and identity
- (h)activism and social justice
- critical approaches to algorithms, platform studies
- codes and practices of Internet culture
- connected devices and the Internet of Things
- big data and predictive analytics
- techno-social interfaces
- digital labor, crowdsourcing and co-creation
- Internet governance and regulation
- (global) social media
- communication, participation and polarisation online
- philosophy of information and knowledge

Alexander von Humboldt Insitute for Internet and Society

The Alexander von Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society (HIIG) explores the dynamic relationship between the Internet and society, including the increasing interpenetration of digital infrastructures and various domains of everyday life. Its goal is to understand the interplay of social-cultural, legal, economic and technical norms in the process of digitisation.

Hans-Bredow-Institute

The research conducted by the Institute focuses on mediated public communication: today, the different types of mass media shape people's everyday life, politics, the economy as well as culture to a greater extent than ever before. Understanding the underlying determinants, assessing future opportunities and risks, and providing orientation for the actors involved - are the main focus of the Institute's research.

Im Focus: Neutron star merger directly observed for the first time

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event

On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Im Focus: Cold molecules on collision course

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...

Im Focus: Shrinking the proton again!

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.

It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
