The 4th Inclusiva-net Encounter: P2P Networks and Processes will take place in Medialab-Prado Madrid from July 6 to 10, 2009.
The goal of this international meeting is to debate about social and cultural potentials of these peer-to-peer networked systems, as well as their feasibility as an alternative model of knowledge production, based in collaboration, decentralization and the lack of hierarchy.
This new edition of the Inclusiva-net platform includes a program of lectures, seminars, round tables, paper presentations, and debate groups. The topic will be addressed from many different perspectives, such as cultural, philosophy, politics, technology, or law.
Core themes: artistic and social potentials; application of P2P organizational models to knowledge and social life, legal controversies of file downloading, “panarchy” and “P2P governance” concepts, roles in the emergent countries, the future of P2P, among others.
Participants: Andoni Alonso (writer and philosopher), Michel Bauwens (Foundation for Peer-to-Peer Alternatives), Javier de la Cueva (derecho-internet.org), Juan Freire (Business School EOI), Antonio Lafuente (Blog Tecnocidanos / CSIC), Margarita Padilla (Sindominio.net) or Juan Martín Prada (director of Inclusiva-net), among others.
There will be lectures and roundtables, selected papers presentations and discussion groups (registration required).
