TICTeC 2018

Lisbon, Portugal

Call for papers

We invite individuals and organisations to submit abstracts or workshop proposals of no more than 300 words by 2nd February 2018.

We encourage submissions to focus on the specific impacts of technologies, rather than showcase new tools that are as yet untested.

We will prioritise proposals that can demonstrate data or evidence of how civic technology has been impactful in some way. We encourage presentations that examine negative results as well as research evidencing positive outcomes!

An abstract to present your research should preferably include a brief overview of the research, the research questions, the methods used, and the results you plan to share.

If you want to propose a workshop or panel, please include information on the theme, format, and what you hope the outcomes of that workshop to be.

Those selected for inclusion in the conference programme will be notified no later than 16th February 2018.

Presenters will be required to register for the conference by 2nd March in order to confirm their slot (the registration fee will be waived for individuals presenting).
