Brave Conversations Global 2021
Once again the 2021 ACM Web Science Conference Week will include Brave Conversations. The event runs from 9:00 BST to 13:00 BST on Monday 21st June.
Last year’s event was in the midst of the global move online forced by Covid 19; since then we have held numerous events around the world thanks to the wonders of the Internet and World Wide Web.
So how has this changed the way we (as humanity) are living online? What has become normalised and what is still strange? What changes has this wrought for how we live, work and play?
This 2021 event will reflect on this whilst also exploring the new world that is emerging as we have governments empowered by data, a move to online work and learning and a growing tension between ’safety’ and ‘privacy’.
The objective of Brave Conversations is to bring Web Science to mainstream discussions that take place in everyday life. The conversations rely on what people bring and we hope to bring a broad audience from around the world to question, challenge and converse.
Please join us. Registration is free and places are limited. Please note that Brave Conversations Global is not included in the main conference registration fee.
Full details of this event and the whole Web Science Conference programme can be found on our website.
