        Subject: EXTENDED 2nd Call for Participation: Berlin Early Stage Researchers Colloquium 2014


Hereby the Alexander von Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society
announces the annual colloquium held in Berlin, 9 October 2014. We wish to
gather early stage researchers (Ph.D. candidates and post-docs) from all
disciplines in order to drive forward the discussion on topics in the field
of Internet research. The colloquium provides a stage for new perspectives
on current issues of Internet and society.


Early stage researchers (Ph.D. candidates and post-docs) from all
disciplines are invited to push ahead with the discussion revolving around
Internet research.

Conference: 09 October 2014 in Berlin

EXTENDED Submission Deadline: 17 August 2014:

Online submission via: http://colloquium.hiig.



This year’s colloquium will consist of two thematically focused tracks. We
cordially invite you to submit your research projects on one of the
following two topics:


In the near future, we will be paying for movies according to the size of
the screen that it is displayed on, as stated by Jeffrey Katzenberg, CEO of
DreamWorks Animation. Whether that will actually happen remains to be seen,
however it is clear that business models are changing rapidly due to the
digital switch and correspondingly changing user expectations and
behaviours. In the ESRC we will talk about how audiovisual media (e.g. film,
animation, games, television etc) can cope with these dynamic circumstances.
In specific on how new business models occur that adjust to the changing
viewing behavior of users. What implications does this have on copyright
legislation and on data protection as well as on the norms and regulations
that emerge outside the legal realm? We regard this theme from a
multidisciplinary perspective, and welcome contributions from the area of
media studies, law, social sciences and economics. During the session,
academics and people working in the field will participate in the discussion
and provide a practical angle. » MORE


Privacy debates in the age of the Internet are prominent focal points of all
the challenges arising from increased network connection, new data
generation and collection techniques and conflicting cultural values. In the
ESRC, we want to explore the governance of privacy works on a global scale.
What are the global governance challenges of privacy? How is privacy
understood and perceived in different fora and what does that mean for
governing privacy? We welcome perspectives from all disciplines and from
theoretical and empirical backgrounds to contribute to our debate on
governance and privacy. During the session there will be very brief
five-minute inputs by the authors of the papers and ample of room for
discussion and the generation of new ideas. » MORE
