10th Annual Social Informatics Research Symposium Connecting (Epistemic) Cultures and (Intellectual) Communities (SIG/SI)

For 10 years, ASIS&T SIG/Social Informatics has convened a pre-conference research symposium to disseminate current research and research-in-progress that investigates the social aspects of information and communication technologies (ICT) across all areas of ASIS&T. Throughout the past decade young researchers and doctoral students, as well as established members of the SI community, have shared approximately 100 papers, posters and panels illuminating the intellectually challenging and engaging work of social informatics. 

Building on the success of past years, the symposium includes members of many special interest groups whose work crosses numerous lines of interest to social informatics. The symposium 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. In keeping with the theme of this year’s Annual Meeting, Connecting Collections, Cultures and Communities, the symposium will also include work focusing on understanding and analyzing connections between social informatics and cognate epistemic cultures and intellectual communities from a social informatics perspective.
