The Association of Internet Researchers is among the premier international associations for students and scholars in the field of internet studies. We are an inclusive community and encourage membership by researchers ranging from cultural studies through social sciences to informatics, and beyond. Founded in 1998, AoIR organises academic conferences which annually bring together the best and brightest researchers and practitioners in Internet research.
Membership in AoIR connects you with our vibrant community of scholars, gives you access to our archive of past conference papers, and enables you to take advantage of discount book and journal discounts. It also supports the ongoing work of the Association.
Membership in AoIR provides support for the Association and gives you a voice in its affairs and its future. Members also enjoy discounted registration fees to AoIR’s annual conference. We strongly encourage all AIR-L list subscribers to support AoIR by becoming a member.
Membership of AoIR is relatively inexpensive compared to many professional and scholarly associations and brings with it several benefits, as well as being your way of helping support Internet scholarship and research. We would welcome you joining the association and helping us to grow and promote studies of the Internet. The annual membership dues (in US dollars) are as follows:
