Given that the information society and the study of information face a 
world of crisis today and are at a crossroads, also the future of the 
Internet and social media are in question.
The 5th ICTs and Society Conference therefore wants to focus on the 
questions:
What are the main challenges that the Internet and social media are 
facing in capitalism today?
What potentials for an alternative, commonist Internet are there?
What are existing hindrances for such an Internet?
What is the relationship of power structures, protest movements, 
societal developments, struggles, radical reforms, etc. to the Internet?
How can critical political economy and critical theory best study the 
Internet and social media today?
