CaTaC 2014

Our 1998 conference on “Culture, Technology, and Communication” (CATaC) was among the first devoted to the roles of culturally-variable norms, practices, and communicative preferences in the designs, implementations, and responses to (networked) information and communication technologies. The biennial CATaC series has generated a number of significant publications; the series has also been ranked by the Australian Research Council among the top 20% of conferences in terms of international impact and significance. Equally importantly: our critical but collegial conference culture provides a unique oasis for participants who shared often radically interdisciplinary interests.

CATAC 2012

The 2012 conference, as the title suggests, begins with the recognition that the ongoing issues and challenges clustering around digital divides – often involving mutually reinforcing cultural divides – extends beyond classic and stubborn problems of access to new media and communication technologies.
