*More about C&T 2021:*

The biennial International Conference on Communities & Technologies (C&T)
is the premier international forum for stimulating debate and disseminating
research on the complex connections between communities – in their multiple
forms – and information and communication technologies. C&T is brought to
you by EUSSET, the European Society for Socially Embedded Systems, who also
brings you ECSCW.

The theme of C&T 2021 is “Wicked Problems in the Age of Tech
<>,” inviting
participants to examine the positive and negative implications of new
trends in Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) impacting
communities, civil society and the common good.  Papers and proposals were
accepted from a variety of relevant perspectives including technology,
philosophy, social sciences, policy, design, business, art, the humanities,
and so on.

We are very much looking forward to seeing you in June!
