5th European Symposium on Gender & ICT
„Digital Cultures: Participation – Empowerment – Diversity“

University of Bremen, Germany, March 5 – 7, 2009

Information Society with its variety of new information and communication media offers many new options to participate in today’s social, cultural, political and economic activities. However, chances are still distributed unequally, e.g. by class, ethnicity, age – and by gender. Access to and the ability to use information and communication technology (ICT) are necessary prerequisites for participation. On top of this, involvement in ICT design is a highly prestigious activity.

On the 5th European Gender and ICT Symposium we will take a closer look at the complex interdependences between gender and ICT. We will explore ways to increase appreciation of diversity in design and use and to strengthen empowerment and participation by means of ICT. This conference, the fifth in a row of symposia held in Europe since 2003, traditionally provides
a meeting point for researchers from various disciplines and research schools dealing with gender and ICT. We invite you to share your experiences!
