      Hi,

      We are trying to attract academics from a range of disciplines including IT,
      sociology, studies in science and technology, geography, organization,
      anthropology, philosophy, etc., in order to provide a diverse forum for
      discussing a range of issues relating to the notions of Space and Time. Feel
      free to contact us if you require any further information.

      Thanks for your help, Chris

      Dr C McLean, UMIST, Manchester.

      INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON SPACING & TIMING: Rethinking globalization &
      standardization
      Palermo, Italy: 1st- 3rd November 2001

      Conference Committee: BRUNO LATOUR, ANTHONY HOPWOOD, NIGEL THRIFT

      CALL for PAPERS

      This conference seeks to bring together academics from different
      disciplinary domains to discuss two of the key resources and creations of
      organizations: space and time. Rather than taking space and time as a normal
      feature of an organization existing per se, the conference aims to examine
      them as achievements which require many practical tools, technologies and
      practices to exist and be sustained. Hence the verb forms: spacing and
      timing.

      We welcome papers and extended abstracts which seek to explore the
      theoretical and empirical issues related to the above themes from a wide
      range of disciplines and approaches. The following issues provide an
      indication of some of the topics you may wish to examine:

      - The fabrication of multiple times, spaces, and actants, and the role of
      inscriptions and standardised practices in this process of fabrication.

      - The maintenance of certain standards and constants and their role in
      creating current notions of space and time (e.g. the delegation of
      measurement and categorization to different forms of instrumentation).

      - The role of practical tools in achieving organizations, and in particular
      how different 'spacings' are achieved and how faster 'timings' are produced.

      - The desire to achieve transportation of information, without deformation.

      - Globalisation and notions of space and time within our 'networked'
      society.

      Relevant dates:
      July 20th: Papers/Extended abstracts submitted
      August 6th: Notification of Acceptance
      October 6th: Submission of Final Papers

      Speakers:
      Gibson Burrell; Barbara Czarniawska, Wai Fong Chua; Francois Cooren; Niels
      Viggo Hansen; Keith Hoskin; Jan Mouritsen & Isabelle Stengers have all
      expressed a keen interest in attending and participating in the conference.
