Promoting gender perspectives in the digital revolution is still an ongoing major challenge. What are promising and innovative interventions and where are the areas of interest? How can researchers and practitioners cooperate to prevent troublesome gendering in IT? How can the mutual exchange of gender knowledge and IT expertise be made effective? This conference looks for inter- and transdisciplinary approaches to consider gender in shaping and creating digital change.
