The ICUD International Conference: Digital Discrimination and Social Networks [1] takes place on March 13 and 14, 2014 in Barcelona, Spain. It will be a discussion space for academics, researchers, Internet and sns experts, NGOs, knowledge providers, and anyone interested in the issues surrounding discrimination on the Internet, especially in regards to social networking sites.

The ICUD Project aims to “creatively unveil” hidden forms of discrimination on the Internet, especially on social media sites such as Facebook, and provide practical tools to combat discrimination online. Hot and complex topics like teen usage of Internet tools and social networks, racial discrimination, digital divides, youth and identity will be discussed during the two-day conference.

The full program [2] is available on the official site of the ICUD Conference site, while live streaming [3] and simultaneous translation will also be available.
