Tehran to Host Smartphone Confab

The first conference on "Smartphone Use and Lifestyles" will be held on June 10-11, IRNA reported on Monday.
Debates will include the socio-cultural effects of smartphone usage and national policies regarding this matter, the conference secretary, Tahmineh Shahverdi, said.
Organized by the Vice-Presidential Office for Science and Technology, the event will help create an opportunity for researchers to interact "so that theoretical methods regarding modern public communication device usage (specifically mobile phones) can be devised and discussed."   
Special workshops are also on the agenda, the official said, adding that some workshops will focus on mobile phone journalism as well as mobile-friendly social media websites and messaging apps.
Iran's young people have widely taken to mobile phones in recent years. The Rouhani administration is a big proponent of pushing mobile internet technology as the web can be used to lessen government bureaucracy and costs.
The conference will be held at the Research Center of Humanities and Social Studies located at No. 47, Shahid Nazari St., Abu Reyhan St., Enghelab Avenue, Tehran.
