The conference series brings together scholars from around the globe who provide diverse perspectives, both in terms of the specific culture(s) they highlight in their presentations and discussions, and in terms of the discipline(s) through which they approach the conference theme.

- Mobile technologies in developing countries
- New layers of imaging and texting interactions fostering and/or threatening cultural diversity
- Theoretical and practical approaches to analyzing “culture”
- Impact of mobile technologies on privacy and surveillance Gender, sexuality and identity issues in social networks
