13th IFIP TC9 Human Choice and Computers Conference:
"This Changes Everything"
in conjunction with the World Computer Congress, 19th-21st
September 2018, Poznan, Poland.
Conference Chairs: David Kreps, Kai Kimppa, Louise Leenen, Charles Ess
Conference Theme - Track Chairs: David Kreps and Charles Ess
This Changes Everything. Many of us likely associate this phrase with
Steve Jobs' introduction of the iPhone in 2007. But there are clearly
other candidates for the â'This', e.g., the oncoming bioinformatics
redesign of species or the fourth industrial revolution of artificially
intelligent robots. But 'This' is also, without question, the greatest
challenge of our age: climate change.
Accordingly, the 13th Human Choice and Computers conference centers on
the question: ICT and Climate Change - What Can We Do?
The Conference invites both academics and practitioners in the field of
ICTs and Society to take stock of their engagements, review their focus,
and assess what and how each and every one of us might be able to
contribute to the transformations needed (and already beginning) in
local, regional, national and international contexts, towards becoming
the diverse, environmentally and socially conscious, and thriving
We welcome submissions that speak directly and less directly to the
conference theme. âThis Changes Everythingâ implicates both climate
change and the interrelated global challenges most central to the
Working Groups of TC9 and its National Society representatives,
including the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Submissions are also
welcome, not just to the General Conference Track on change, but to the
other foci of the Track Themes. (For complete track descriptions,

Subject: CFP extended: "Undergraduate Research in the Digital Age" conference at Reed College
Share your experience supporting undergrad scholarship by submitting a proposal for the "Undergraduate Research in the Digital Age" conference. We welcome proposals from all perspectives, especially from collaborative teams. The deadline has been extended to November 6th.
"Collaborating to transform undergraduate research: evolving modes of scholarly practice in the digital age" will be held March 14-16, 2018 at Reed College in Portland, OR. This is the capstone event of a five-year project that focused on collaboration among faculty, librarians, and instructional technologists to better support students as they become researchers, and particularly as they engage with digital sources, tools, and methods.
For details on submissions or to read more about the conference, visit (http://www.reed.edu/e2s/conference/index.html). General registration will open in early December and travel scholarships are available.
Feel free to contact me with questions. Hope to see you in March!
