>1st Global Conference: Interactive Convergence: Research in
>7 to 9 August 2003, Prague, Czech Republic
>Keynote Speaker: Professor Bruce Klopfenstein

>Grady College

>Call For Papers
>(Please cross post where appropriate)
>This inter-disciplinary and multi-disciplinary conference
>marks the launch of a new annual project in the Critical
>Issues series of research projects. The project aims to
>provide a challenging forum for the examination and
>evaluation of the theme of  'convergence' in media and
>multimedia. Viewing multimedia research as a divergent
>and multi-layered phenomenon, the conference series
>seeks to provide a forum whereby people working in
>differing disciplines and professions can become aware
>of and share the perspectives generated by
>developments in areas other than their own.
>One of the primary goals of the project will be to evaluate
>the issue of where the study of Interactive Multimedia
>properly belongs. Is it a part of Computer Science, Art and
>Design, Communication, Education, Business,
>Psychology, Sociology or any of the many other
>disciplines? Or is Interactive Multimedia an
>interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary area in its own
>The aim of the inaugural conference will be to examine
>Research in Multimedia in its many disciplines in an
>attempt to identify and critique its characteristics, its
>impact and the implications for its integration into our
>every day lives.
>Papers, reports, presentations and workshops are invited
>on any of the following themes:
>Usability and design
>Visual design
>Virtual communities and collaborative work
>Social impacts such as online pornography, internet
>addiction, and gender divides
