The Connected Life 2016 team cordially invites you to submit proposals to participate in our conference at the Oxford Internet Institute (Oxford University), on the 20th and 21st of June 2016. The deadline is April 3rd 2016. Connected Life is student-run, and dedicated to sparking exchange between disciplines and showcasing emerging Internet research. We welcome students and faculty from all universities and departments.

This year’s theme is Collective Action and the Internet. The Conference explores how the Internet affects collective action; both in big social movements, such as the Arab Spring and the Hong Kong Protests, and in more everyday forms of collaboration. Beyond submissions on the theme, we warmly welcome any social science topic related to the Internet.

Our call for papers can be found here: If you have any questions or wish to get in touch, please contact or visit our website:

We look forward to receiving and reviewing your submissions,

Wybo Wiersma, Bertie Vidgen & Ilinca Barsan
