About the GIG-ARTS conference (extrait de l’appel à communication) :
The GIG-ARTS (Global Internet Governance Actors, Regulations, Transactions and Strategies) conference is a European annual multidisciplinary academic venue to present and discuss developments in Global Internet Governance (GIG) and their implications in and beyond this field of research. It is one of the outcomes of the GIG-ARTS project.The GIG-ARTS conference aims to complement and bridge between existing venues, such as established International or European disciplinary conferences in the social sciences (e.g. IAMCR, ICA, ISA, IPSA, ECPR, EISA
), where GIG scholars sometimes find their interdisciplinary research marginalized in terms of issues, areas and disciplines ; or such as in the only venue specialized in GIG so far (the Annual GigaNet Symposium), organized as a pre-event of the UN annual Internet Governance Forum (IGF) since 2006, making it difficult to both focus on European developments and to accommodate a larger academic community than the one used to participating in IGF. The GIG-ARTS conference objectives are threefold : to foster the enlargement and diversification of this academic community in order to increase its visibility ; to open more opportunities to young scholars, particularly from Europe and its neighbourhood ; and to anchor its discussions in the European context, providing a space where the scholarly community can address regional challenges and contribute to regional discussions. Each year, the GIG-ARTS conference will highlight a main theme. In addition to keynote speeches and academic presentations and disc
ussions, at least one roundtable will feature a debate with practitioners around that theme. The theme of the first GIG-ARTS conference edition in 2017 is : “Global Internet Governance as a Diplomacy Issue”.
