Partnership for Progress on the Digital Divide
2019 International Conference

22-24 May 2019
Washington, District of Columbia USA

 

Marking the 25th anniversary of the recognition of the digital divide through social scientific research

Partnership for Progress on the Digital Divide (PPDD) is the only academic professional organization in the world focused solely on the digital divide and on connecting research to policymaking and practice to strategize actions and catalyze solutions to this pressing societal concern.  The academic research, policymaker, and practitioner community represented by PPDD stands ready to advance the agenda on broadband and the digital divide, to address the many challenges and opportunities presented by the digital world, and to further evidence-based policymaking and practice so that all citizens can participate fully in the digital, networked age.

The interdisciplinary Partnership for Progress on the Digital Divide 2019 International Conference brings together researchers, policymakers, and practitioners for an extended, in-depth dialogue about key issues that inform information and communication technologies and the digital divide around the world. The Conference works to identify new areas of necessary, productive focus, foster greater understanding, advance research, and enlighten policy and practice going forward.

PPDD 2019 is particularly significant as it marks the 25th anniversary of the recognition of the digital divide through social scientific research. And, within PPDD 2019, we plan to have the largest worldwide gathering of disability digital divide experts ever.

As a major outcome of PPDD 2019, in addition to the PPDD 2019 Proceedings and E-Book, there will be an edited volume of the top papers as well as special issues of our Publishing Partners’ journals on specific themes within the digital divide area.

The Program page of the PPDD 2019 website contains details about the format of the Conference. In late March, on the Hotel and Optional Activities page, you will find full details about the PPDD 2019 Conference hotel, optional activities, and the Washington, DC area as well as helpful information if you are also attending the ICA Annual Conference nearby following PPDD 2019.

If you would like to present and discuss your work during PPDD 2019 and have it included in the online PPDD 2019 Conference Proceedings and/or if you would like to provide a Position Paper for inclusion in the PPDD 2019 E-Book, please see the Call for Participation for instructions on how to submit your work for consideration.

If you would like to just attend PPDD 2019 to explore the issues and grow your knowledge and network of connections, please know that you are very welcome and valued in the PPDD Conference Community.

Please join PPDD and an unprecedented broad multi-disciplinary coalition of co-sponsoring organizations from academic, policymaking, and practitioner communities to share your insights and expertise. Together, we will enrich the dialogue, connect research, policy and practice, and advance the agenda on the digital divide.
