<nettime-ann> Internet Research 7.0: Internet Convergences

(Apologies for any cross-posts...)

  AoIR Conference === Internet Research 7.0 === "Internet Convergences"
       Hilton Hotel, Brisbane, Australia === 27-30 September 2006

The Association of Internet Researchers is pleased to announce that
registrations are now open for its 2006 conference, to be held at the
Hilton Hotel in Brisbane, Australia, on 27-30 Sep. 2006.

This major international conference takes place in the southern
hemisphere for the first time. Themed 'Internet Convergences', the seventh
annual AoIR conference will explore how the Internet acts in both
converging and fragmenting ways - physical, cultural, technological,
political, social - on local, regional, and global scales.
Internationally, AoIR is the leading academic association dedicated to
research and analysis of the Internet and related network technologies.
Established in 2000, it has grown to become a key player in supporting
Internet research and disseminating findings. A key reason for holding the
conference outside of North America or Europe is to emphasise the
international perspective of this global, networked organisation.

The conference will feature keynote lectures by Professor Guo Liang,
deputy director of the Center for Social Development in the Chinese
Academy of Social Sciences (CASS), and Professor John Hartley, Research
Director of the ARC Centre of Excellence in Creative Industries and
Innovation at Queensland University of Technology and Australia Research
Council Federation Fellow.
Conference delegates are also invited to attend a public lecture by Dr
Merlyna Lim - this lecture is offered by the Centre for Asia Pacific
Social Transformation Studies with support from the ARC Cultural Research
Network and AoIR.

Delegates are now able to register for the conference through the
conference Website at http://conferences.aoir.org/. Conference
registration also includes one year's membership of AoIR. In addition to
conference registration itself, further registration options are available
for the pre-conference workshops held on 27 Sep. 2006, the conference
reception (free for all delegates), and the conference dinner.

The IR7.0 conference hotel is the five-star Brisbane Hilton. There is
heavily discounted conference accommodation available at the Hilton Hotel,
starting from A$215/night (~ US$160). Please note that discounted rates
are available through the Hilton Website during the conference period 27
Sep.-1 Oct. Should you wish to stay for longer, the Hilton is happy to
make discounts available on request before and after this period. Please
enter a booking for 27 Sep.-1 Oct. and indicate your extended stay in the
booking comments - Hilton staff will endeavour to provide you with room
discounts throughout your stay. Please see the Hilton's AoIR 2006 booking
