Between Indiana Jane and Laurence Croft: Adressing gender issues in computer games
>> 21/01 – 9h- room ?
Computer games have already been themes in interesting discussions, since for many children games are the first contact with computers and thus have the potential to keep people interested in technological issues. Facing the low partition of female computer scientists, the question could be: why are there only few computer games adequate for females’ requirements? The paperpresent an example, namely FemCity: a feminist computer game

Gender-assessment of audiovisual mediaproducts: the MEER software

This workshop aims to include the way in which women and men are represented in the computer reviews. Are there any of differences ? If so, what are they ? And if there are differences, do they have an effect or not on the image that we have of the IT sector?

See or not see... the virtual bodies – cinematographic image readings
>> 22/01 – 14h - room?
Beyond our legitimate fascination at the cinematographicexperience, during which our critical capacity is most of the time voluntarily `suspended', it is necessary (and time) however to wonder what is behind these images which define visually and narratively the relations between women and new technologies. How do we decode these representations?

Changing lives : the case for women-only vocational training in ICT revisited
>> 21/01 –11am
>> Wendy Faulkner, Rommes Els, Irma Van Slooten
During the 1980s training providers across Western Europe were offering women-only training courses in information technology, but by 2000 the strategy has all but fallen from fashion. It was increasingly difficult for such courses to sustain funding, it seems, with the turn to the politics of inclusion, diversity and gender mainstreaming. This paper argues that, whatever the merits of these recent trends, the need for women-only vocational training in technology remains, at least in certain circumstances.

Women and Technological Desire
>> 22/01 – 4 pm
>> Cornelia Brunner
This workshop will focus on research done over the last 2 decades, mostly in the US, in which we have examined gender differences in how people feel about technology, what they want and expect from it and how it fits into their conceptions of the relationship between individuals and the world. I will show examples of work produced by young people, girls and boys, in a variety of projects that have grown out of the gender research, in which we tried to develop an more gender-neutral and a more feminine-friendly approach to technology.

Cognition and learning : do women learn IT as men do? - Isabelle Collet
>> 21/01 – 2pm - Room
Here is an ambiguous question which could quickly become provocative. Indeed, it sounds as these naturalist justifications explaining why women cannot enter higher education : their different way of thinking would be less adapted to prestigious subjects and in particular to the mastering or even the use of IT. In this case, should we have "information technology courses for girls"? What shape should they take ?

Work organisation in ICTs, specific difficulties for women - Caroline Guffens
>> 21/01 – 9 am - room
This presentation is based on the results of the "WWW-ICT" study, a European research project of the fifth European Framework Programme. Seven countries took part in the study and, as well as examining the art of research on this subject and providing an on-line bibliography, each of them carried out 20 biographical interviews and 4 case studies, and compiled their countries good practices, aiming at reducing the gaps linked to gender in ICTs jobs. On the basis of this material, this presentation will cover the organisation of work in firms and /or the ICTs jobs.

"While documentation aspires to be a faithful representation of reality, we believe that it is not possible to represent reality without modifying it, and so we moved closer to "reality fiction" - the presentation of other possible realities, like that of science fiction.
We wanted to give a chance to the suburban imaginary to come out of the darkness and become visible on the big screen, a chance for others to tell unspoken stories, to create counter-hallucinations outside the dominant cultural paradigms."

Various international media(h)ac(k)tivists (*)
>> 23/01 -14h>18h- Salle:
Recently, a group of international women bumped on each other at several european meetings(**) of media(h)ac(k)tivism. This collision generated a general feeling of a strong “female spirit” at the heart of the media-activist movement. Is there also a different attitude of women towards media-activism ?
