SocInfo 2011 Conference started
Today started 3rd International Conference on Social Informatics. The International Conference on Social Informatics was first held in Warsaw, Poland in 2009, followed by Laxenburg Austria in 2010. SocInfo2011 is held in Singapore, a major hub in the Asia Pacific region well known for its multi-racial and multi-cultural society. Both SocInfo2009 and SocInfo2010 were small meetings that covered mainly the computing perspective of social informatics. This is changed at SocInfo2011, which aims to broaden the scope of social informatics while reaching out to diverse researchers worldwide. The mission of SocInfo2011 is to make the conference a premier venue for both social and computer scientists to exchange the latest research ideas that better intergrate scholars from the two disciplines. The conference program is reflecting this in the keynote talks, tutorials, workshops and paper sessions addressing emerging topics which attract interdisciplinary research attention. For the first time, the conference has a strong representation of social science researchers. Both the organizing committee and program committee have diverse disciplinary representation. The committees were actively seeking papers covering a wide spread of topics and approaches.
