Archives of IT is organising a one-day academic-practitioner forum on the
Histories of the Internet in January 2024 and we are now looking for
proposals for papers and discussions.
The forum will be hosted at the Livery Hall of the Worshipful Company of
Information Technologists in Central London with space for 50 participants
and the opportunity for more to join online.
 It would be great if you would be personally interested in participating
and we hope you could share this information with your network and alert
anyone you think would benefit from the opportunity to propose a session.
More about the Forum
The forum is designed to:

. foster more critical, multidisciplinary perspectives on the history of
computers, telecommunications, the internet, and related digital media;
. illuminate how people, policies, initiatives and other social factors have
shaped and are shaping technological developments;
. feature talks and panels identifying a variety of competing perspectives
on innovations or other key events in the history of information and
communication technologies

Calling for Abstracts of Proposed Papers
We are now calling for abstracts of proposed papers that will bring together
the insights gained from historical perspectives on the internet
technologies and applications in education, civil society, business,
industry, politics and government.
Their aim will be to explore what can be learned from these histories and
how historical perspectives can support future research, policy and practice
for a network society.
Abstracts of proposed papers should be between 300-600 words and sent to 
 <mailto:forum at archivesit.org.uk> forum at archivesit.org.uk. The deadline is
9am, Monday 29 May.

Those whose abstracts of proposed papers are accepted will be asked to
