Third Call for Papers - Deadline March 31
Wonderground - the 2006 Design Research Society International
Conference invites full papers of up to 6,000 words and working
papers of up to 2,000 words. There is a specific call for
contributions to the research exhibition. We welcome papers in all
areas of design research.
Conference Web Site
DEADLINE: 2006 March 31.
Responding to requests for an extended deadline, we changed the
deadline to March 31. We will continue to accept papers until April 5.
We will begin the review process for each paper as it arrives to
ensure a prompt reply for those who need it.
Digital submission: Authors must submit papers in digital form.
Submission address: Please submit papers to the Content Management Coordinator
"Martim Lapa" martim.lapa_at_iade.pt
When sending your paper to Mr. Lapa, please send a copy [Cc:] to the
Content Management Secretary
"Elisabete Perfeito" eperfeito_at_iade.pt
Language: Papers must be written in English.
References, format, and style: Conference papers should follow the
Publoication Manual of the American Psychological Association, Fifth
Edition. Please visit the conference web site for full details.
Authors can download a good short guide at URL:
Length: Full papers should be up to 6000 words plus illustrations.
Working papers should be up to 2000 words plus illustrations.
Refereeing: A large, international scientific committee ensures
expert review for all fields. No referee will review more than three
papers. Authors will receive careful and reflective comments.
The Wonderground review process will "help authors in" rather than
"keep authors out."
Short Guidelines Members of the scientific committee have prepared
two short guidelines to help authors write papers that enable readers
to understand and use their work. These are not rules, but
suggestions or checklists covering the key features of a conference paper.
Full Papers The full paper format runs up to 6,000 words. We
encourage submissions from all fields of design research. We welcome
papers representing all perspectives and research methods. These
guidelines are intended to help authors
At the top of the full paper, write a self-contained abstract of up
to 200 words that outlines your aims, scope, and conclusions. Then,
give up to five keywords that describe the working paper. In the
paper, 1) Introduce the subject and state the goals of the paper. 2)
Identify the issues you will consider and give some background. 3)
Describe your approach to the issues you will address. 4) Describe
the circumstances in which you conducted your work. 5) Describe what
you actually did and describe the tools you used. 6) Describe your
findings or conclusions and explain how they support your goals. 7)
Indicate what you learned or accomplished and suggest future work in
your area of interest. 8) Provide a bibliography containing all the
references cited in the text.
Working papers: The 2000-word length working paper format allows
researchers to present work in progress in a convenient way while
making a rich enough argument to deserve conference presentation.
A working paper should contain several features of a full paper. At
the top of the working paper, write a self-contained abstract of up
to 200 words that outlines your aims, scope, and conclusions. Then,
give up to five keywords that describe the working paper. In the
working paper, 1) State the theme of the paper. 2) Promise a
contribution. 3) Provide evidence for the argument that you will
present to reach the conclusion. 4) State the structure of the
argument and show how you will develop it. 5) Show how the evidence
and the argument will lead to a contribution. Evidence may include
summaries of empirical work as well as discussion from the
literature. 6) Provide a selected reference list to supports the
working paper in the same way that a full reference list supports a full paper.
Language advice English is the conference language. Please remember
that English is a second or third language for many of our authors
and readers. We encourage authors to write in a direct, comfortable
style for clear, understandable papers.

         Subject: Call for papers, CaSTA 2006
Fellow researchers:
    My apologies if you receive this call for papers notice
more than once.
    This year's Canadian Symposium on Text Analysis conference
is being held at the University of New Brunswick in Fredericton.
Papers are being accepted until March 15, 2006, and we hope you
will consider submitting a paper in one of the following areas:
    =B7Text analysis from a Humanities Computing perspective
    =B7Interface Design and usability issues
    =B7Applying Computer Science research to textual questions
The CaSTA Program Committee invites submissions that focus on the
ways in which researchers mine, manipulate and use electronic texts,
where "texts" are understood in a broad sense to extend to and
include multimedia.
    The complete call for papers and submission guidelines are at
Co-sponsors include the Social Sciences and Humanities Research
Council of Canada, the Society for Digital Humanities and the
Association for Computing Machinery.
    It would be much appreciated if you could forward this message
on to others you think might be interested in submitting a
paper to CaSTA 2006.
Regards, Brad Nickerson

CALL FOR PAPERS for the Digital Divide minitrack
Forty Annual Hawai'i International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS-40)
January 3-6, 2007
Hilton Waikoloa Village, Big Island

web site: <http://www.hicss.hawaii.edu>http://www.hicss.hawaii.edu
Digital divide plays an important role in last 
years’ discourse in theory and practice as well. 
Starting in the 90’s by focusing on 
infrastructures divides between the ‘have’ and 
‘have-not’ and continuing in the following years 
to other dimensions of the divide such as skill, 
usage, governmental and communal support and more…
The mini-track calls for papers that study the 
digital divide in different levels, methods and 
perspectives. Levels of the digital divide such 
as: international, national, local, sector, communal, and also individual.
Subjects related to the digital divide that are 
in the scope of this mini-track but not limited to:
      Socio-demographic factors– gender, age, 
education, income, ethnic diversity, race 
diversity, language diversity, religiosity
      Social and governmental support – for 
example the use of supportive initiatives, policy 
and applications to bridge the gap, or how 
society and communities impact e-Inclusion
      Conceptualization and theory of digital divide
      Comparative and local analysis of policy
      Use – skills, frequency and time, locus, 
autonomy of use, what do users do online and for what purpose
      Access and technology – infrastructure factors
      Accessibility focusing mainly in populations with special needs
      Measurements index – e-readiness, DiDix and more
