I'm happy to write that the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) is
now funding: "A research coordination network (RCN) for Digital
Societies and Technologies".The focus of the RCN is towards community
building for sociotech scholars.
This initial funding for this Digital Societies and Technologies RCN
will run through December, 2016 in support of three broad efforts: (1)
sociotech community building; (2) planning and piloting shared sociotech
resources (heading towards a community cyberinfrastructure) and (3)
expanding the breadth, depth, impact and visibility of sociotech
The Digital Societies and Technologies RCN and the successful Consortium
for the Science of Sociotechnical Systems (CSST) summer research
institutes (http://sociotech.net/) serve a similar community of
scholars. However, the summer research institute is not a part of the
RCN effort -- it remains both a vibrant activity and distinct from the RCN.
Beyond sharing the good news, we write to draw your attention to
opportunities to participate in events supported by the Digital
Societies and Technologies RCN.Calls for participation in specific
events and projects will begin being announced over the coming months
and much of the RCN funding is to support workshops of various
kinds.We'll need your help to plan, organize, staff and participate in
Feel free to share this news with sociotech colleagues and others.
Sincerely, the RCN steering committee:
Steve Sawyer (PI) (Syracuse), Wayne Lutters (Co-PI) (UM-BC), Brian
Butler (Co-PI) (UM-CP), Diane Bailey (Texas), Dan Cosley (Cornell), Tom
Finholt (Michigan), Sean Goggins (Drexel) and Andrea Tapia (Penn State).
