Cyberconf (International Conference on Cyberspace) was a conference series that addressed the social, political and cultural implications of the internet from a critical standpoint and encouraged discussion between theoreticians and practitioners. Founded in 1990 by Michael Benedikt, it ran for 7 editions until 1998.

The first two iterations of the conference served as the basis of Cyberspace: First Steps (MIT Press, 1991), edited by Michael Benedikt, and with contributions by William Gibson, Marcos Novak, Sandy Stone, Michael Heim, a.o.
