Identity, Policy and Innovation in the Information Society

Quadrangular_logo_2009.gif The Quadrangular Conference in Technology, Organizations and Society 2009 is the third annual symposium organised jointly by the University of Cambridge, Lancaster University, University College Dublin and the London School of Economics. This year’s event is hosted by the Information Systems Group at the Judge Business School, University of Cambridge.

We welcome theoretically diverse papers encompassing, but not limited to, approaches that draw on Social Theory, Philosophy, Psychology, Public Policy, Cultural Studies and Political Thought. Research areas will cover a wide spectrum organisational and social challenges, such as:

  • Alternative theoretical and methodological approaches in the study of socio-technical phenomena
  • Critical approaches to organisational innovation
  • New technologies and perceptions of identity
  • Power and control in IT design, implementation and use
  • Technology policy discourse and ideology
  • Human agency, choice and organizational change
  • ICTs and citizen empowerment

Application areas may include healthcare, open-source, collaborative technologies, e-government or any other setting that presents interesting socio-technical phenomena.

Conference Benefits

As in previous years the conference provides an opportunity for Doctoral students to meet, exchange ideas, present their papers and receive feedback in a stimulating and supportive environment. Significant time will be allocated to each individual to present and discuss their research. We encourage you to consider this event as a forum for collective help giving and learning which requires attendees to diligently prepare and openly share their research difficulties with both faculty and peers. The faculty are committed to providing detailed feedback and also facilitate discussions around emergent themes. We expect a collage of conceptually and methodologically diverse presentations, provoking in-depth discussions in an informal and intimate setting.
