You might find the following conference of interest -- we particularly
encourage the submission of papers that apply network analysis, so if you
do research on online networks and their impact on politics/policy, do
consider submitting an abstract!
- - -

Dear friends and colleagues,

We are pleased to call for abstracts for a conference we will be holding
in September 2010:

Internet, Politics, Policy 2010: An Impact Assessment

University of Oxford: 16-17 September 2010
Abstract deadline: 15 March 2010
http://www.oii.ox.ac.uk/events/

We are very excited by the opportunities the conference will present to
subject the relationship between the Internet, Politics and Policy to
multi-disciplinary scrutiny. It will be organized along twin tracks
(Politics, Policy), tied together by joint sessions which will explore
areas of intersection and mutual influence.

The conference is convened by the Oxford Internet Institute (University
of Oxford) in partnership with the European Consortium of Political
Research (ECPR) Internet and Politics Section, and the Journal 'Policy
and Internet'.


Please distribute this call to anyone you think might be interested, and
of course: please submit an abstract!

With best wishes,

Prof. Helen Margetts (Programme Chair)
Oxford Internet Institute

--------------------------------------------------
1. Rationale / Scope
--------------------------------------------------

The Internet is now the most important international medium of
communication and information exchange, involving citizens, firms,
governments, political parties and NGOs, and bringing with it new
practices, norms and structures. The societal shift enabled by the
Internet is impacting upon public policy in all sectors, requiring
rigorous empirical investigation, theoretical development and
methodological innovation across academic disciplines.

In short, the Internet drives social change, requiring a policy response
- and policy organizations of all kinds use the Internet to formulate
and implement that response. Analysis of these two trends requires
taking advantage of the new evidence generated by the Internet and the
development of methods from a range of disciplinary perspectives.

This is the first academic conference to subject the relationship
between the Internet, Politics and Policy to multi-disciplinary scrutiny.


--------------------------------------------------
2. Twin tracks: Politics and Policy
--------------------------------------------------

The conference will be organised along twin tracks:

1. Papers in the Politics track should consider the use of the Internet
by political organizations, examining the impact on policy of (for
example) online interest group activity and political mobilization,
e-voting, political parties and campaigning and e-government.

2. Papers in the Policy track should look at policy responses to
Internet-driven social change, including e-health, on-line education,
cybercrime, security, privacy and digital inclusion.

3. Plenary / Keynote sessions will merge these tracks, investigating the
intersection (and intertwining) of policy and politics and the Internet.

If you have any questions about how your work may fit into the overall
scheme of the conference, please contact: mailto:[log in to unmask]


--------------------------------------------------
3. Call for Papers / Deadlines
--------------------------------------------------

We welcome papers that report on innovative research into any aspect of
the impact of the Internet on public policy and / or politics.

We particularly welcome papers that report novel results or
methodological approaches, such as advanced analysis of online policy
networks, modelling of real-time transactional data or Internet-based
experiments.

Perspectives from any academic discipline are welcomed, particularly
political science, economics, law, sociology, information science,
communications, philosophy, computer science, psychology, management,
geography and medicine.

Please submit a 500-word outline in the first instance.

All outlines will be peer reviewed and applicants will have the
opportunity to co-submit their paper to the journal Policy and Internet,
which will operate a fast-track review process for accepted papers.

1. Abstract deadline: 500 words to be submitted by 15 March 2010

2. Decision on abstracts: 15 April 2010

3. Paper submission deadline: 9 September 2010

All abstracts, papers and correspondence should be sent to:
mailto:[log in to unmask]
