2nd Call for Participation & Registration - 20 days to event

2nd International Symposium in Media Informatics - "Cow Paths: Agency in
Social Software" - November 16-17, 2006, B-IT, Bonn, Germany

Social software - often connected to older forms of computer mediated
communication (CMC) and newer discussion about online communities - can be
defined as software that supports activities in digital social networks. The
use of new digital media tools such as blogs, wikis, tagging and other
communicative or multimedia assets create new challenges for
interdisciplinary research in media informatics.

* What are the effects when media get agency in digital networks?
* How can we trace and understand collective processes on the internet?
* What is the role of visualisation?
* What is the role of social software on change processes in organisations?
* Are there new models of labour, new processes and new forms of
organisations possible?
* Will users be empowered or will lack of data protection and privacy set
free new genies?
* What is the impact of tools supporting social structures on the
emancipation and appropriation?
* Which are the impacts on design and media?
* Will they help facilitating new forms of democracy, digital rights, and
overcome the digital divide?
* Or will the hunt for digital reputation lead to cow paths where only cows
walk by? 

The second international symposium on perspectives in media informatics is
organized jointly by the two leading collaborative research centres for
media Media and cultural communication and Medienumbrueche, the Bonn-Aachen
International Center for Information Technology B-IT, and the Network of
Excellence on technology enhanced professional learning PROLEARN. It brings
together researchers and practitioners from media informatics, sociology,
ANT, law, media theory, social software, collaborative work and learning, to
discuss current trends and emergent issues of sociality in digital networks
in a mixture of invited talks and round table events. The event will be
accomplished by online activities and practical exercises in social
software.
