Following the successful inaugural ‘Digital Futures’ conference in Nottingham in 2010, we are pleased to announce the second meeting for the Digital Economy community. The Digital Economy Programme seeks to transform the lives of people, communities and businesses through the design and deployment of innovative information and communication technologies.

The upcoming conference will feature interactions with key industry representatives, case studies demonstrating impact from the the Digital Economy programme, keynote presentations, formal paper sessions including papers from doctoral students, posters, integrated workshops, and technology demonstrations. This enthusiastic, multidisciplinary environment is the ideal venue to meet other innovative thinkers and share ideas about how to make an impact in various sectors, such as government, transport, health and creative industries, increasing the potential for improving quality of life, social inclusion and sustainability. This year the conference focuses on the theme of Digital Engagement.

This meeting will also feature a RCUK Competition to capture stories of Digital Economy impact. Information about this competition and research prizes is available at http://de2011.computing.dundee.ac.uk/?page_id=166
