Join us in Lisbon for the fourth edition of mySociety’s The Impacts of Civic Technology Conference on 18 and 19 April 2018.

TICTeC is known for its unique focus on the impacts of Civic Technologies: it’s a safe place to examine what works, what doesn’t, and how best to measure that. And the culture of TICTeC — where funders mix with practitioners, activists converse with researchers, small NGOs get as much attention as the big players — tends to create new sparks: partnerships, ideas, synergies and friendships.

Keynote Speakers

Professor Jonathan Fox (American University)

Baroness Martha Lane-Fox (House of Lords, DotEveryone)
 

Call for Papers now open

We invite individuals and organisations to submit abstracts or workshop proposals of no more than 300 words by February 2nd, 2018.

We encourage submissions to focus on the specific impacts of technologies, rather than showcase new tools that are as yet untested.

We will prioritise proposals that can demonstrate data or evidence of how civic technology has been impactful in some way. We encourage presentations that examine negative results as well as research evidencing positive outcomes!

An abstract to present your research should preferably include a brief overview of the research, the research questions, the methods used, and the results you plan to share.

If you want to propose a workshop or panel, please include information on the theme, format, and what you hope the outcomes of that workshop to be.

Those selected for inclusion in the conference programme will be notified no later than 16th February 2018.

Presenters will be required to register for the conference by 2nd March in order to confirm their slot (the registration fee will be waived for individuals presenting).
