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.
