The second New Zealand Internet Research Forum was held at AUT on 4 and 5 February 2016. The Institute of Culture, Discourse and Communication co-organised the forum with InternetNZ in an effort to support the continued establishment of a network of researchers interested in the internet.

  • Social media
  • virtual worlds
  • cyber security
  • online activism
  • crowd sourcing
  • computer engineering
  • copyright
  • gaming
  • digital politics and law, online communities
  • the virtual public sphere
  • online journalism
  • digital literacy.

Two panels were held - the first looking at the future of internet research, and the second discussing human rights and the internet. View the video recordings of these panels.
