How does consumer generated content contribute to the digital economy and consumer behaviour?

In what ways does consumer generated content shape consumer behaviour (e.g. visiting a museum, restaurant etc)?

Is the use and generation of content on consumer review sites a part of an individual’s continuation of ‘social presence’?

How to model traveller behaviour, latent capacity, routing and navigation based on historical data and real-time information to form the foundation for providing reliable and appropriate options in a complex system?

How to understand traveller behaviour with regard to the local context, demands and requirements of travellers so that suggestions seem appropriate and relevant to the concerns of travellers?

How to detect aspects and features of a route from heterogeneous sources, including smartcars, vehicle, CCTV, gate information, mobile phone location, GPS and electronic compass and by combining these, make reasonable inferences about traveller behaviour?

How to produce and support reliable ad hoc networks of services and resources for travellers, particularly when devices (and users) are not only clients of the services but also information and data providers?

How to integrate, provide and display information that is seen to be reliable, secure, trustworthy and appropriate even when it comes from both formal and informal sources?

How to assess whether the products and services can affect appropriate, relevant and efficacious changes in behaviour?

Mobility futures in the DE

How can more specific scenarios of future mobility systems integrate digital economy practices and technologies? What are the opportunities (e.g. richer exchange of local goods, motility, and skills) and what are the dangers (e.g. all-encompassing surveillance of physical and virtual mobilities)? How can opportunities be developed and dangers addressed?

How can digital economy technologies and practices foster both a sense of crises around current mobility issues and a sense of hope?

What digital economy cultural philosophies and practices could inform a re-evaluation of motility, experiences, goods and relationships needed for systemic innovation around mobility?

How can synergy between different mobility system innovation initiatives (political, technological, everyday, economic, etc.) be supported?

Examples, E-car-charging

Legal Aspects of Social Networking Sites

As the terms and conditions are non-negotiated agreements, how is consent to them obtained?

Promoting Art and Creative Industries Collaboration through STS

What kind of cultural and philosophical frameworks are being developed to enable creative collaborations? What breeds success, what is difficult?

How can convergence between digital and physical or social technologies for creative collaboration be brought about?

What are the barriers for innovation for creative collaboration?

What kinds of research and espeicially action research methods are needed to drive innovation for creative collaborations (e.g. ethnography, virtual ethnography, participatory design, experimental implementation, living labs)?
