Technology Mediated Social Participation
WEST COAST WORKSHOP & PANEL - Dec 10-11 @ PARC
With the goal of drawing up a strong scientific research agenda and educational recommendations necessary for a new era of social participation technologies, PARC is hosting the first of two workshops designed to bring together a diverse set of researchers from a variety of disciplines.
The West Coast Workshop will focus on three major themes:
- Integration of theory: from individual behavior to collective action
- Social intelligence and capital: understanding connections
- Research challenges: shareable infrastructure, ethics, and protection
In addition, Peter Pirolli and Jenny Preece will be hosting a special PARC Forum on Technology Mediated Social Participation on Thursday December 10, featuring panelists Ben Shneiderman, Amy Bruckman, Bernardo Huberman, and Cameron Marlow. The Forum will be streamed and recorded as well. We'll be live-testing/ soft launching the PARC Forum livestream at: http://www.justin.tv/parcinc
