“The first international conference on Internet Science”

VENUE: The Royal Flemish Academy of Belgium for Science and the Arts (KVAB), Rue Ducale 1, Brussels (Belgium)

DATE: 10-11 April 2013





The Internet, Interdisciplinarity & Innovation conference aims at investigating the emergence of Internet science through a deeper multidisciplinary understanding of the development of the Internet as a societal and technological artefact, whose evolution is increasingly intertwined with that of human societies. Its main objective is to allow an open and productive dialogue between all the disciplines that study Internet systems under any technological or humanistic perspectives. We invite both research papers presenting new results and extended abstracts presenting provoking ideas and work-in-progress, shedding light on Internet Science from all involved disciplines and in particular papers crossing rigid disciplines boundaries.
