Name:16th IFIP 9.4 International Conference - Freedom and Social Inclusion in a Connected World
Description:Digital connection has never been more profoundly implicated in the freedom and wellbeing of individuals as societies face the challenge of a severe pandemic. Deep-seated inequalities and tensions have been unveiled and magnified under covid-19 across different social, institutional and cultural contexts. It is imperative to examine the role of digital technology in relation to diverse forms of exclusion, marginalisation and vulnerabilities, and to investigate the intersection between technology and various systems of power in the uneven landscape of development. New theories, concepts and philosophical perspectives are needed to shed light on the digital challenges in an increasingly complex and precarious world. The Working Group 9.4 of the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP 9.4) gathers scholars and practitioners that deal with the issue on how ICT affects social development. We invite you to submit full research papers and research-in-progress (RIP) papers to the 16th International Conference on Social Implications of Computers in Developing Countries. The conference will be held in Lima, Peru, 25-27 May 2022 if conditions permit. The theme of the conference is Freedom and Social Inclusion in a Connected World. Papers are invited to be submitted to the following 13 tracks. Track 11 and 12 welcome research papers and RIPs in Spanish and Portuguese related to the conference theme in general. RIPs in English should be submitted to track 1-10. Accepted RIPs in English will be presented in Track 13 which will be held as a paper development workshop. 1. Digital Platforms 2.
