Proceedings and Program
The Internet constantly challenges our notions of place and space, and we believe that a cross-domain exploration of this process is needed to understand its evolution.
Indeed one of the most important effects of the Internet has been to relax spatial and temporal constraints, contributing to the modern “space-time collapse”, by allowing quasi instantaneous access to information, services, and even physical resources. However, the multiplication of services and the democratisation of GPS based technologies introduce both the possibility and the need of a more location-oriented access to the virtual spaces that constitute the Internet.
Moreover, the Internet familiarised us with new topologies which have become the model of many new forms of organization: the self-organizing rhizomic network of the World wide Web challenging hierarchies, P2P networks of devices that create dynamic semi-private subspaces and communities, new forms of proximity based on micro-blogging and social networks, as well sensor and controller nets establishing ubiquitous access, sensing and interaction.
Furthermore, virtual worlds such as World of Warcraft or Second Life are attracting an increasing number of users, while second generation Web mapping technologies and virtual globes contribute to blur the boundaries between spatial representation and perception by providing mashup opportunities, photorealism, visual navigation, and three-dimensional representations.
OneSpace aims to present high-quality papers about the identification and study of the complex relationship of the Internet with space, place, geography and distance, whether physical or virtual. Technologies as well as novel ideas, experiments, and insights originating from multi-disciplinary viewpoints, including humanities, social sciences and mathematics are welcome.
