About the Conference

The Around the World Conference is an experiment that brings together a research dialogue without the environmental cost of traditional conferences. Institutes and researchers are invited to participate either through presenting or by joining in the discussion. The conference is live-streamed world-wide and archived after the event.

The 2014 theme was Privacy and Surveillance in the Digital Age. This May 21st, 2014 was Archived!

For Presenters

In terms of recorded video we can accept just about any digital format, however MP4 with a resolution of 1920X1080 is our preferred format. We are unable to accept quicktime (.mov) files.

For those participating via video conferencing we are using Lifesize hardware over IP, any VC hardware form Sony, Cisco, Polycom, or Lifesize made within the past 5 years should be compatible. We can only connect via IP as we no longer support ISDN on campus.
