5th Global Conference
Wednesday 13th March – Friday 15th March 2013
Call For Presentations:
This inter- and multi-disciplinary conference aims to examine, explore and critically engage with the issues and implications created by the massive exploitation of digital technologies for inter-human communication and examine how online users form, archive and de-/code their memories in cybermedia environments, and how the systems used for production influence the way the users perceive and work with the memory. In particular the conference will encourage equally theoretical and practical debates which surround the cultural contexts of memory co-/production, re-/mediation, en-/decoding, dissemination, personal/mass interpretation and preservation.
Presentations, papers, workshops and reports are invited on any of the following themes:
1. Digital Personal and Community Memory
2. Externalization and Mediation of Memories
3. Memory and Cultural Software
4. Memory in Cybercultures and Arts
5. Archiving and Dissemination of Memory Data

7. Specific Research on Community Memory
The Steering Group particularly welcomes the submission of pre-formed panel proposals.
