The next TGC workshop will be held on March 18th and 19th at 1 Shanti Rd, Bengaluru.
The workshop continues TGC’s series of discussions about technology and
society, with an emphasis on encouraging conversations between programmers, computer scientists, social scientists and practitioners.
This will follow on from recently concluded research on “communities, technology and participation”, which explored issues concerning opportunities and
challenges in digitising public and government data, costs and scale of implementing technologies, reconfiguration of state-citizen relationships through e-governance and research methods and
paradigms emerging from societal and technological standpoints.
TGC: Communities, Technology, and Participation will open up some of the discussions we have had, allowing participants to engage with and contribute to research on issues and questions that are emerging in the broad field of information technologies and governance.
