Event description
Bringing together researchers, practitioners, and all those with an interest in how technology is changing the way we engage with society.

About this Event

Hosted by UK-based charity mySociety and returning for a sixth year, TICTeC 2020 will focus on the impact that civic technology and digital democracy are having upon citizens, decision makers and governments around the world.

Primarily, the goal of TICTeC is to promote and share rigorous and meaningful research into online civic technologies and digital democracy around the world. The conference facilitates discussion and networking amongst individuals and groups to find real-world solutions through sharing evidence of impact, and (importantly) evidence of what doesn’t work. Read how attendees have benefited from coming to TICTeC over the years.

TICTeC 2020 will bring together individuals from academic and applied backgrounds as well as businesses, public authorities, NGOs, funders and education institutions to discuss ideas, present research and build a network of individuals interested in the civic technology landscape. See who’s previously attended TICTeC.

Sign up for updates and we’ll let you know when speakers are announced. Speakers and agenda details will be added to this page in the months leading up to the conference.

Call for Proposals now open

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.

We invite individuals to submit abstracts or workshop / presentation proposals of no more than 300 words by 17th January 2020.

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

Presenters will be required to register for the conference by 7th February in order to confirm their slot (the registration fee will be waived for individuals presenting).

Guaranteed speaking slots

Are you really keen to present at TICTeC 2020 and interested in a guaranteed speaking slot? This year we are offering a limited number of guaranteed 20 minute speaking slots for a fee of £5000. This means you won’t need to compete against the hundreds of other submissions we receive through the open Call for Proposals. Email us to discuss this option.

The fee for guaranteed speaking slots will go towards travel grants for attendees and speakers from the Global South who would not be able to attend TICTeC without financial support. TICTeC is a non-profit conference; the small amount of sponsorship we receive, and the income from ticket and speaking slot sales, is used to host the conference and enable us to provide travel support to attendees from the Global South.

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