Along with the Media Innovation Lab (MiLab), we’re excited to announce our inaugural Doctoral Workshop, to be held April 6th to April 8th at Princeton.

Participating doctoral students will be selected through a competitive review process and will receive support for travel and lodging up to $500 per attendee. Students are encouraged to submit dissertation-relevant work; abstracts and shorter proposals will not be accepted.

Research topics should focus on the interplay between information and communication technologies and the social, political, civic, and governmental spheres. We welcome applications from doctoral students doing relevant work in any discipline, including communication studies, computer science, economics, political science, and sociology. Possible topics include, but are not limited to, the following: citizen journalism; civic engagement and digital technology; e-voting security; internet governance; open government data; privacy technologies for democratic ends; social media and political expression; and state-sponsored internet freedom programs.

To be considered, please submit your manuscript, along with your CV and full contact information, to Laura Cummings-Abdo () and Meike Muller () no later than February 1, 2015.

For more information, please see this call.
