ICT4ER 2013 Workshop

Thursday, 20 June 2013

A workshop entitled "Information and Communications Technology for Environmental Regulation: Developing a Research Agenda" will be held in CA110, JE Cairnes Building, NUI Galway on Thursday 20 June - Friday 21 June 2013. The aim of this workshop is to build a network of researchers dealing with these issues in order to prepare joint projects, funding applications and work towards an international conference dealing with this topic. The workshop will discuss the development of a coherent but multi-disciplinary research agenda for ICT and environment regulation and agree detailed proposals for future work in the area, such as the publication of an edited collection, funding applications or an international conference. It is aimed at those who work on issues related to the use of ICT in environmental regulation, whether as academic researchers, practitioners based in regulatory agencies, or activists in NGOs, such as lawyers, IS/IT/GIS specialists, environmental informatics specialists, economists, public policy researchers, psychologists, sociologists and other social science researchers.

The keynote speaker is Professor Bradley C. Karkkainen, University of Minnesota School of Law.

This workshop is funded by the Irish Research Council, the Whitaker Institute for Innovation and Societal Change, and the Environment, Development and Sustainability cluster of the Whitaker Institute at the National University of Ireland Galway.
