[ox] Fwd: ICSC2001 - Final Call for Papers - Extended Deadline


Ich glaube, ich hatte das hier noch gar nicht weiterverbreitet. Ist
vielleicht nicht ganz unser Thema, aber sicher im Randbereich.

Wir bitten um Entschuldigung, wenn mehrerer Kopien dieser Nachricht ankommen.

Liebe Kolleginnen und Kollegen, Liebe Leute von der FIfF-Liste,

auf vielfachen Wunsch und wegen der noch nicht zufriedenstellenden Zahl von
eingereichten Beiträgen haben wir uns entschlossen, den Abgabeschluss für die
Einreichung von Beiträgen zur International Conference on Social Computing
(ICSC 2001), die vom 1. bis 3. Oktober 2001 in Bremen stattfinden wird,
bis zum 23. Februar 2001 zu verlängern.

Näheres kann dem angehängten Final Call for Papers entnommen werden.
Weitere Informationen einschließlich einer etwas ansprechender aussehenden
pdf-Version des Final Call for Papers findet man (wegen technischer
Schwierigkeiten leider erst demnächst) auf der ICSC 2001-Homepage

Wir wären sehr dankbar, wenn diese Nachricht an interessierte Kolleginnen
und Kollegen weitergegeben würde - insbesondere auch an Fachleute
außerhalb Deutschlands. In diesem Zusammenhang möchten wir darauf hinweisen,
dass eine beschränkte Zahl von Reisekostenzuschüssen für Teilnehmende aus
Osteuropa und aus Entwicklungsländern zur Verfügung steht.

Wir bitten euch auch weiterhin um Mithilfe, diese Konferenz zu einem
Erfolg - insbesondere auch des FIfF - zu machen. Es ist ein Versuch, diverse
internationale Organisationen zum Themenbereich Informatik&Gesellschaft
zusammenzubringen, der um der Sache willen gelingen muss.

Mit fiffigen Grüßen,

Hans-Jörg Kreowski und Karl-Heinz Rödiger


ICSC 2001				     International Conference on
                                                         Social Computing
                                                      October 1 - 3, 2001
                                            University of Bremen, Germany


Governing the Network Society

In recent  decades, the use of information and communication technology has
transformed the way of life and work of many people  all over the world.
While  the Internet  has become the most important instrument  for
organizing  that change,  we see that  in some parts of the world,
many people do not even have access to a computer. Ironically,  while
"connected" people partake in discussions about the evolution of the
"networked society", those who are not connected  are excluded from this
discussion. As a result, the technological, cultural, and social developments
will probably continue without the participation of large numbers of people,
and the imbalance will extend with growing speed and unforeseen consequences.
The main questions, the conference is dealing with are: What are the social
impacts of the emerging information and communication technology world-wide?
Is it meaningful to speak about the "network society"? How can we govern it
in a fair way?

The conference will serve as an international forum for scientists, leading
experts, technical professionals, and users  involved in research and
development. They will gather together to discuss the benefits, challenges,
and risks of information and communication technology for the future society.
At the same time this international conference is an attempt to bring
together those organizations involved in topics of computers and society.

The conference will include keynote addresses, invited lectures, contributed
papers, posters, tool demonstrations, panel discussions, and satellite events
on a wide range of topics in this area. The conference is meant to attract
both academics as well as everybody working as an expert with information
and communication technology.

Computers, the workplace, and participatory design
Automation and the future of work
Mobile work in virtual companies
Collaboration and surveillance

Computers and society
Equal opportunity
Technological and cultural challenges
Challenges and risks of the information society
Global information society and vulnerability
Special conditions in developing countries

Fair net governance
Social impact of e-commerce
Cyberrights and cyberethics
The future of copyright
National policies


Bremen, Germany, is an ideal setting for this October conference. The city
is celebrated for its physical beauty, its independent politics, and as
the home of the fairy tale, "The Town Musicians of Bremen". Beck's beer
is made here, and you will enjoy the parks, the historic buildings (eg
the famous town hall), the fine restaurants, and the many open air markets.

The full papers submitted for review should be no more than ten (10) pages
in length and should be written in the format to be found under Send your submission preferably
via e-mail to icsc2001 Paper versions of your
submission should be sent to the conference secretariat. Your paper should
be received by February 23, 2001. Notification of acceptance will be emailed;
all other author information will be available on our webpage. Special
arrangements can be made for all, who do not have access to the internet.
Camera-ready manuscripts and registration payments are due May 25, 2001.

Besides full papers, participants may present posters or tool demonstrations.
In this case, a 150-word abstract should be submitted.

A 500-word abstract should state the objectives of the panel, its scientific
or educational importance, and a brief summary of the area of emphasis for
each panel member. The abstract should also identify the panel chair and the
panel members.

Workshops, seminars, meetings may be organized by interested groups or
societies as special events, preferably before or after the conference.
A 500-word abstract should state the objectives, content, scientific
importance and methodology for conducting the workshop and the target

The conference proceedings are intended to be published as Springer Lecture
Notes in Computer Science (LNCS).
