Internet Research 3.0: NET / WORK / THEORY
Maastricht, The Netherlands, October 13-16 2002

The Internet has become an integral, ubiquitous part of everyday life
in many social domains and international contexts. Yet, most of the
public attention on cyberspace remains fueled by utopian or dystopian
visions, rather than being informed by the growing body of research
on the Internet as a complex fact of modern life.

Internet Research (IR) 3.0, an international and interdisciplinary
conference of the Association of Internet Researchers (A.o.I.R.),
will feature a variety of perspectives on Internet research, in order
to develop a better theoretical and pragmatic understanding of the
Internet. Building on the previous well-attended international
conferences, the IR 3.0 will bring together prominent scholars,
researchers, and practitioners from many disciplines, fields and
countries for a program of presentations, panel discussions, and
informal exchanges.

This year's theme is Net/Work/Theory. Contributors are called to
reflect on how to theorize what we know about the Internet and on how
to apply what we know theoretically in practice. The conference will
be held for the first time in Europe, whose intellectual environments
have traditionally been a source of social and cultural theory.

IR 3.0 will be hosted by the International Institute of Infonomics in
the beautiful city of Maastricht in the Netherlands. As the city in
which one of the key treaties of the European Union was signed,
Maastricht also symbolizes a changing Europe in a changing
international setting. The conference will provide opportunities to
network, learn from other researchers, hear from leading players in
Internet development, and enjoy the "art of fine living" of
Maastricht, in the south of the Netherlands.
