Cyberbullying is a form of bullying that takes place in a new context: on the internet and through a variety of modern electronic devices/media. Cyberbullying presents challenges for researchers regarding several aspects such as: the lack of common methodology, the relationship to traditional bullying, and how to develop plans for prevention and intervention strategies against cyberbullying. Similarly, school personnel need to be able to prevent and intervene successfully with cyberbullying situations in schools.
To meet the challenges for researchers and practitioners the University of Gothenburg, City of Gothenburg, Gothenburg Region of Association of Local Authorities, Friends, and the International Bullying Prevention Association are jointly organizing a conference on cyberbullying.
The conference starts on May 11th with a day that focuses on current research in the area. The program of this day includes esteemed international speakers and a poster session. The second day of the conference, May 12th is intended both for researchers and practitioners. The goal with this day is that researchers and practitioners meet and share their knowledge concerning cyberbullying. The program of this day includes a program with a mix of international and Swedish speakers.
The conference will take place at Elite Park Avenue Hotel which is situated at Kungsportsavenyen 38, in the center of Gothenburg. It can be reached easily by public transportation.
