On April 1-3, 2008, the New Media Consortium will convene an online conversation about mashups. This event is the eleventh in the ongoing series of specially focused online gatherings that explore new ideas and issues related to technology and learning.

The NMC’s Symposium on Mashups will be devoted to looking across the spectrum of mashup activity, from the creative and fun applications that may end up on YouTube, to practical applications that can be explored with students, to showcase projects that are making used of these tools, to issues of policy and concerns such as privacy.

To that end, submissions on a variety of topics are encouraged, including but not limited to these:

  • Case studies involving mashups as they might be applied or used in any discipline
  • Descriptions or comparisons of authoring tools and/or APIs that enable users to make custom mashups
  • Presentations on relevant research, user studies, or other empirical information related to any aspect of mashups
  • Examples of innovative uses of mashups for teaching, learning, or creative expression
  • Interesting uses of mashups in social networking platforms (Facebook, MySpace)
  • Policy considerations, the “dark side,” or cautions
