"Global MIL Week 2018 will address the concept of MIL Cities and citizens at their heart. ... Topics for papers and presentations should be within the fields of MIL and their connection to MIL Cities as dynamic environments of media, information and technology as well as innovative ways to advance MIL development among people. ... Submissions could be about MIL-related research, good practice, programmes, policies and other work. We are particularly interested in the multiple literacies and stakeholders, youth critical civic engagement, creative and sustainable cities, voter education, informed citizenry and online participation, freedom of expression, media pluralism, diversity, dialogue, and tolerance."
