10th Chinese Internet Research Conference (CIRC10): Play & Politics: Gaming, Social Media & Governance
USC Davidson Conference Center
Hosted by the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism this year, the 10th Chinese Internet Research Conference (CIRC10) will examine trends and themes as we explore the ways in which the Internet and other technologies interact with Chinese cultural and social life, featuring keynote speakers Jenova Chen, game developer and founder, Thatgamecompany, Ge Wang, founder and CTO of SMULE, and Ting Chen, chairman, Wikimedia Foundation. Initiated ten years ago by USC, this interdisciplinary conference has been an annual event hosted by major universities both in the East and in the West, with previous hosts including University of California at Berkeley, Peking University, University of Hong Kong and Georgetown University. It has been an unparalleled forum for world-class academics and professionals to develop a community of scholars and feature research that examines the development, use, and impact of the Internet, mobile phones, and associated new media technologies in the Chinese world. In addition, it has been an important trend identifier and leader of public policy discussions for media companies doing business in China.
