Call For Participation: UNC Social Software Symposium
December 8-9, Chapel Hill, North Carolina
The University of North Carolina School of Information and Library Science is proud to announce the UNC Social Software Symposium. This two day event, held December 8-9, 2006 in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, will explore research methodologies for studying social software. The symposium will explore two significant areas: folksonomy/social tagging, and social network websites. Guest experts include David Weinberger (author of forthcoming "Everything is Miscellaneous"), Nicole Ellison (MSU) and Cliff Lampe (MSU).
The symposium is targeted towards graduate students and faculty conducting ongoing analysis of these two areas of social software. Space is limited and participation is required. Interested parties are asked to submit a one-page abstract summarizing their ongoing research and analysis in the field (publications, white papers, classwork), and their goals for the social software symposium. The abstract should be sent to Fred Stutzman (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Dr. Gary Marchionini (email@example.com) by Friday, November 3, 2006. Notifications of acceptance will be sent by November 8, 2006.
All meals, including a social dinner gathering, will be provided for attendees. Questions regarding the symposium should be directed to Fred Stutzman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
