Event description

Description

mySociety is delighted to announce TICTeC 2018 - or to give it its proper name, The Impacts of Civic Technology Conference 2018.

Returning for a fourth year, the conference will focus on the impact that civic technology and digital democracy are having upon citizens, decision makers and governments around the world. We'll discuss themes of engagement, participation, institution, social behaviour, politics, community, digital capability, communication and ethics relating to the use and study of civic technology.

TICTeC 2018 will bring together individuals from academic and applied backgrounds as well as businesses, public authorities, NGOs and education institutions to discuss ideas, present research and build a network of individuals interested in the civic technology landscape.

This 2 day conference provides the opportunity for researchers to present theoretical or empirical work related to the conference theme. We also welcome proposals for individuals to lead workshops or give presentations relating to the conference theme. We encourage submissions to focus on the specific impacts of technologies, rather than showcase new tools that are as yet untested.

Further details on speakers and sessions will be added to the TICTeC website regularly.

Call for Papers

The Call for session proposals is now open until 2nd February 2018. You can submit a session proposal by filling out this form.

We invite individuals and organisations to submit abstracts or workshop proposals of no more than 300 words by 2nd February 2018.

We encourage submissions to focus on the specific impacts of technologies, rather than showcase new tools that are as yet untested.

We will prioritise proposals that can demonstrate data or evidence of how civic technology has been impactful in some way. We encourage presentations that examine negative results as well as research evidencing positive outcomes!

An abstract to present your research should preferably include a brief overview of the research, the research questions, the methods used, and the results you plan to share.

If you want to propose a workshop or panel, please include information on the theme, format, and what you hope the outcomes of that workshop to be.

Those selected for inclusion in the conference programme will be notified no later than 16th February 2018.

Presenters will be required to register for the conference by 2nd March in order to confirm their slot (the registration fee will be waived for individuals presenting).

About Lisbon

Lisbon is Portugal's capital and the hub of a multifaceted area that appeals to different tastes and senses.

In a city that has been influenced by many different far-off cultures over time, there is still a village feel in each historic neighbourhood. Stroll through the Pombaline grid of streets in the Baixa district that opens on to the Tagus in Praça do Comércio, then follow the river to discover some of the city’s most beautiful parts: the monumental area of Belém with its World Heritage monuments, the mediaeval quarters and the latest contemporary leisure spaces, such as the Parque das Nações.

We urge individuals planning to attend to book early to take advantage of cheap advance fares and accommodation, as prices are likely to rise!
