White Papers 2003
WHITE PAPER SESSIONS
WHITE PAPERS within the ACM are discussions focusing on philosophical aspects of public, educational, or governmental access/community media/alternative media, democratization of the media, self-reflexive analysis of basic access tenets, access and activism, international community media, etc. A single presenter, focuses on a particular concept, engaging session participants with an interactive format. Presenters are chosen through competitive submissions.
For this year's session, we requested submissions focusing on global issues surrounding community-based, alternative media (e.g., the World Summit on the Information Society and the role of civil society in national and global movements toward the democratization of communication), or comparing the tenets and traditions of US community media with alternative media in other parts of the world. Other works dealing with access or media democracy in general were also appreciated.
