*RE: Infrastructures*
September 20–22, 2019
Toronto, Ontario

*RE: Infrastructures* explores the collective care and maintenance of
alternative networking practices—new protocols, peer-to-peer connections,
offline-first computing, and community-based governance.

How can these emerging *Infrastructures of...* provide spaces to imagine
radically different futures, resist easy co-option by the forces of
late-stage capitalism, and work in solidarity as plural networks seeking
emancipatory change? To answer this we draw on insights from organizers,
technologists, artists, and scholars to ensure the focus is not only on the
technical aspects of infrastructure, but also the social and cultural.
Their diverse perspectives suggest ways we can make space for livelihoods,
solidarity, and survival; draw on history and place to bring our fullest
imaginations to this moment; and open ways to think these questions
together as we build transitional forms.

We are inviting proposals for talks, workshops, discussions,
demonstrations, art pieces, and interventions to explore this theme. Topics
could include, but are in no way limited to:

   - Practices of reparative networking
   - Remediation practices for communication infrastructures
   - Uncooptable computing reconfigurations
   - Reconstructing technology after refusal
   - Regenerative approaches that resist status quo tech

Submission deadline: Monday, *July 1, 2019*
