Alternate Tracks

  • Web of Communities

  • This Track has, as its focus, the interaction between the technology of the Web and the lives of communities. Cultural, Indigenous, academic, health, local and global communities of interest use the Web to support their community activities and goals. They have closed and open communities and their technology is used in a vast variety of ways. Some communities are pursuing praiseworthy goals with simple and complex techniques and some are abusing the technology. This track is designed to bring together those who design the technology and those who use it for community purposes in a context where critical appraisal of the technology and its use can be explored openly. Contributions are invited from people who may choose from a range of styles including refereed formal papers, short papers, panel sessions and posters.
