This year the conference has a particular focus on Open Digital exploring the concept of digital openness, from the implications of shareware and gift economies to open-source creative communities and open access data, content and ideas.

This two and half day event will include keynote speakers, paper presentations, integrated workshops, demonstrations and posters.

We now seek submissions focusing on any aspect of the Digital Economy; topics may include, but are not limited to:
?Connected Home & Community
?Creative Industries
?Digital Inclusion
?New Economic Models
?IT as a Utility
?Sustainable Society
?Communities & Culture
?Trust, Security & Privacy
?Evaluations of Impact

Submissions are welcome from anyone in the research or industrial community whether funded by the RCUK Digital Economy Theme or not. We also welcome submissions from others active in or impacted by the Digital Economy.

Submissions from doctoral students are particularly welcome, whether associated with one of the Digital Economy Centres for Doctoral Training or indeed other Digital Economy activity, and such papers will be reviewed separately to ensure representation of this body of work at the event.

Creation of a community in the UK that is capable of world class, leading research in the Digital Economy area is a key aim of the Digital Economy Theme. The All Hands Meeting is a key event designed to encourage the development of this community.

A digitally enabled event:

We want DE2013 to be a digitally enabled event, one which takes traditional outputs such as papers and posters and translates them into accessible, compelling digital artefacts which invite interaction.  The University of Salford campus at MediaCityUK has a unique set of digital technologies, and the Programme Team will be considering ways of translating a selection of the best papers and posters into unique and engaging digital content.  The kind of technologies we have at our disposal include:
?10 interactive touch tables, allowing users to browse, sort and interact with academic papers, posters, digital video, data;
?A media wall consisting of 120 Christie micro-tiles, providing a large scale, high definition public display, with the potential for gesture-led interactivity via Kinect controllers;
?3 full HD TV studios;
?10 HD screens around the public spaces in the building;
?expertise in content production including video, audio and online.

Please feel free at this stage to make suggestions for how your submission might be enhanced by technology.
