20th Community Informatics Research Network Conference

image.png20 YEARS OF CIRN
Examining the past, present, and future of communities and technology

Conference | 9 – 11 November 2022, Monash University, Prato, Italy.

The theme of the 2022 conference, 20 years of CIRN: Examining the past, present and future of communities and technology aims to both look back at 20 years of the Prato conferences and the rich knowledge, and experience that have emerged from them, but as well, look at new emerging themes and challenges in a very different world. The conference may well be unique as an international long-term reflective event concerned with the internet.

We invite referred and non-referred papers and presentations and workshop or panel proposals that can take into account the changes that have occurred with communities and technologies since the earliest days of the internet, as well as accounts of contemporary innovation and challenges across the full range of community informatics interests: libraries, community action and engagement, international development, archives and memory, dis/ability, gender, race & class, identity, and the creative arts. And now, we add environmental informatics.
