The Internet & Politics SG is pleased to support the Oxford Internet Institute in calling for papers for the biennial joint Internet, Politics, and Policy (IPP) academic conference series. Following the 2010 and 2012 conferences the IPP2014 will explore the new research frontiers opened up by Crowdsourcing for Politics and Policy. It aims to serve as a forum to encourage discussion across disciplinary boundaries on how to exploit crowdsourcing to inform policy debates and advance social science research. Convened by the Oxford Internet Institute (University of Oxford) and OII-edited academic journal Policy and Internet, and supported by the ECPR Standing Group on Internet and Politics, the conference will take place at the University of Oxford on 25-26 September 2014.
CALL FOR PAPERS: IPP2014 – Crowdsourcing for Politics and Policy (abstracts by: 14 March 2014)
We call for papers on the observed and potential implications of crowdsourcing for politics, policy and academic practice. Perspectives are welcomed from across science, social science and the humanities, from the academic and policy-making communities. We aim to identify what is novel in crowdsourcing, and the ways it enables and extends existing social and political processes.
