Paper "Values and Networks" als Best-of-CCR ausgezeichnet

Auf der international führenden Konferenz SIGCOMM 2016 stellte Dr. Roland Bless den Beitrag "Values and Networks: Steps Toward Exploring their Relationships" im Rahmen der "Best of CCR"-Session vor. Der Artikel wurde zunächst bei der Zeitschrift "ACM SIGCOMM Computer Communication Review" als Editorial Note eingereicht und im April 2016 dort veröffentlicht. Später erhielten die Autoren Carsten Orwat (KIT / ITAS) und Roland Bless die Benachrichtigung, dass der Beitrag als einer der beiden besten Artikel des letzen Jahres der Zeitschrift CCR ausgewählt wurde und bei der Konferenz SIGCOMM 2016 vorgestellt werden sollte. Der Artikel behandelt interdisziplinäre Fragestellungen, die auf den Institutionencharakter des Internets abzielen, d.h. das Internet ermöglicht, regelt und beschränkt zwischenmenschliche Interaktionen gleichermaßen und hat damit auch Auswirkungen auf gesellschaftliche Werte (u.a. Menschenrechte) bzw. deren Umsetzung. Es gibt jedoch noch viele offene Fragestellungen im Bereich der Gestaltungsoptionen: sollen bestimmte technische Maßnahmen für eine Umsetzung bestimmter Werte sorgen (Operationalisierung) oder gibt es andere institutionelle Arrangements (z.B. Regulierungsbehörden oder freie Märkte), die das ggf. mit technischer Unterstützung auf andere Weise gewährleisten können?
