"InfoSocial: Where information and the social sciences collide."
A graduate student conference hosted by the Media, Technology, and
Society (MTS) program at Northwestern University

As the information infrastructure of contemporary social life
becomes increasingly complex and visible, disparate modes of inquiry
converge. We are surrounded by a proliferation of data that provides a
unique window into a wide array of individual and collective behavior. The
changes in the visibility and availability of such data have challenged the
technical and conceptual boundaries of the social sciences. This, in turn,
has triggered a growth in interdisciplinary collaboration, and in
methodological and theoretical innovation. Our conference aims to
contribute to these collaborative and innovative developments by bringing
together graduate student scholarship from across the academic spectrum.

We seek papers authored by graduate students that address relevant
topics within and across disciplines, including contributions from
communication and media studies, sociology, psychology, computer
science, science and technology studies, information science, political
science, and anthropology, among others.

Possible submission topics include (but are not limited to):
• Linked data/semantic web and society
• Privacy and information management
• Measuring online behavior
• Collective action and crowd sourcing
• Internet skill and literacy
• Open source and innovation
• Complexity and technological change
• History and information
• Information at work
• Educational technology
• Networks and the information society
• Methodological developments
