Hi, as mentioned in a previous email, there is no plan to host a Free
Culture Research Conference this year, mainly because of other obligations
and the fact that I personally needed a break from this, while on the other
hand I was not really sure who could take over - preferably a group of
people who can steer this event in the future, and not just a single person.
While such a group has yet to be formally assembled, CC is organizing a
'summit' for this year, to be held in Warsaw, Poland Sep 16-18. So I thought
that some of us could meet there, since I know that some will attend this
summit anyway. The CC summit is going to be very, well, CC-specific, and
certainly not a replacement for the FCRC. But it's an opportunity for some
of us to meet anyway. So far only a 1-1:30 hour session has been allocated
to "Research" discussion at the CC Summit, but that doesn't preclude
informal meet-ups in Warsaw, a chat over lunch, etc. If you're attending,
let us know and send any ideas about what research-related topics you'd like
to present (if possible, time is VERY limited) or discuss. Tal Niv from
Stanford and CC HQ is helping out with this session.
I'm reposting from the cc-affiliates mailing list as I'm afraid the email to
this list by Tal never made it through. Please send any feedback ASAP.
Giorgos and I are organizing the research session for the Global Summit in
September. For this year, what we were thinking of are informal panels where
people have the opportunity to discuss their ongoing CC research and
research interests, and we wanted to get your suggestions for people and
projects who would be interested in being featured. Also, we are hoping to
begin a discussion with all of you about a future research conference.
Please write back to Giorgos (gcheliotis at gmail.com) and me, and include
names of potential speakers and presentation topics.
Thanks and looking forward to seeing all of you and to a fruitful
Giorgos and Tal
CC HQ, Mountain View
