NotCon04 6th June
* NOTCON ’04 Call for Participation – Please Redistribute Freely *
NotCon ’04, Sunday 6th June 2004, Imperial College Union, London
Proposals due by: Friday 14th May 2004
Have you coded, created, or discovered an interesting application of technology?
Then why not come and talk about it at NOTCON ’04?
NOTCON ’04 is an informal, low-cost, one-day conference looking at things that technologies were perhaps not intended to do.
It takes place on Sunday 6th June 2004 from 11am to 6pm at Imperial College Union, London (in South Kensington, next to the Science Museum and the Royal Albert Hall). And yes, there will be wi-fi. And a bar. And the kind of people who actually ask for them in that order.
* What We’re Looking For *
We’re looking for a mix of talks, demonstrations and panel discussions covering all the usual areas – but with a bit more of an edge than you’d get from just reading about them online.
In short, we’d like proposals for any of these sorts of sessions – especially if they fit into the following categories:
Actual impacts of blogging
Politics on the net
Politics *of* the net
– and also especially if they don’t.
There’ll be the usual 45-minute (and questions) slots for longer talks, plus plenty of shorter 5-minute "lightning presentations", so you don’t need to write a complete lecture or anything.
Proposals should be submitted via the web form at: http://www.xcom2002.com/nc04/submit.php
And if you try to get them to us before midnight UK time on Friday 14th May 2004, then we can work out – and let you know – the line-up before the end of May.
