    Conference Theme: Engaging with Participation, Activism, and TechnologiesPROCEEDINGS
    13th Prato CIRN Conference 2-4 November 2016, Monash Centre, Prato Italy
    LINK**LINK TO PAPERSPAPERS**
    For some years now the CIRN Prato conference has focused on the intersection between Community Informatics (CI), Development Informatics (DI), and Community Archiving (CA).
    In particular, the 2015 conference focused on information and knowledge as socially constructed artifacts and the ways in which relations of information and knowledge production can reflect unequal distributions of power and privilege, “whether manifested in gendered activity; the primacy given to formalized expertise or particular language codes; restricted access to information, knowledge and production for those not in positions of institutional control; or the production of particular artifacts”. The 2015 conference also questioned the role of the academy in defining terminology and appropriate technologies of memory, viewing this as a form of epistemological colonization on vulnerable groups. The conference sought ways of engaging more meaningfully with practitioners.
