Our plenary theme is ‘Developing the Virtual Society: Conflict in Adoption
of Online Collaborative Networks’. As virtual society develops and peer
technologies pump in its heart, this conference brings together academics of
all disciplines to discuss conflict in the adoption of collaborative
networks. This is a time of confrontation between older forms of
communication and organization and new ways of sharing, collaborating and
acting collectively. We seek to explore conflicts emerging in the transition
from and resistance to horizontal participatory networks and also conflict
within collaborative networks. We welcome suggestions for panels and papers
on any area relating to our theme, and particularly in the following areas:

•    Network Theory
•    P2P and FLOSS methology adoption
•    FLOSS methology
•    Open source conflicts and forking
•    Adoption by NGOs and the developing world
•    Adoption by social movements, hacktivism, cyberconflict
•    Institutional resistance to networks
•    Online P2P Places and Conflicts

We encourage especially contributions, but not limiting, to politics,
economics, computer science, business, psychology, sociology, and law.
