Abstract

Hosted by the University of Southern Queensland and sponsored by the USQ Multicultural Network, this one-day symposium was a unique event which aimed to provide a forum to discuss connections between culture, language and technology. This symposium brought together researchers, policy makers, and practitioners to share insights into the challenges and opportunities that a networked society presents. This gathering explored practical policies and approaches to identify better ways of linking different cultures in such a way that communication, harmony, acceptance and respect between different cultures is achieved and maintained.
In addition to its practical contributions, the event aimed to help both professionals and academics to engage in networking and formal publication.
The symposium program included keynote and panel, paper, and poster sessions. The symposium was organized around four suggested, but not exhaustive, themes:
• Technological Influences on Culture and Language
• Cultural Diversity and its Impact on Local Communities
• Bridging the Culture Gaps between Australia and China
• The Role of Emerging Technologies in Building Communities
