Submission Deadline for ASIS&T SIG SI Symposium is coming up
The 8th Annual Social Informatics Research Symposium is a post-conference workshop to be held on Wednesday, October 31, 2012 from 8:30 AM-12:30 PM within the ASIS&T Annual Meeting. This year’s symposium will include the presentation of research papers, the presentation of awards for the best social informatics papers of 2011 and a panel discussion on the past, present and future of social informatics. The purpose of this ASIS&T post-conference research symposium is to disseminate and discuss current research and research in progress that investigate the social aspects of information and communication technologies (ICT) across all areas of ASIS&T. Building on the success of past years, the symposium includes members of many SIGs and defines “social” broadly to include critical and historical approaches as well as contemporary social analysis. It also defines "technology” broadly to include traditional technologies (i.e., paper), state-of-the-art computer systems, and mobile and pervasive devices. Submissions may include empirical, critical and theoretical work, as well as richly described practice cases and demonstrations.
The symposium encourages all scholars interested in social aspects of ICT (broadly defined) to share their research and research in progress by submitting an extended abstract of their work and attending the symposium. This year they will solicit papers, panels, and posters. The schedule for the workshop will involve the presentations of papers and the best social informatics paper awards for 2011. This will be followed by a panel that will discuss the past, present, and future of social informatics. The submission deadline for short papers (2000 words), posters (500 words), or panels (1000 words) is August 15, 2012.
Organizers (to whom papers and posters should be sent and questions addressed):
Howard Rosenbaum, School of Library and Information Science -Indiana University (email@example.com)
Pnina Fichman, School of Library and Information Science -Indiana University (firstname.lastname@example.org)
