The conference, which is being held virtually this year, is currently underway. As a way to introduce ourselves to other great academic communities, we like to invite you to explore this year's presentations before they are gone. The presentations are groups into ten broad tracks: 1: Bots, Bad Actors, Anti-social 2: Digital Methods 3: Discourse and Public Opinion 4: Health & Wellbeing 5: Marketing & Outreach 6: Misinformation 7: Online & Offline Communities 8: Politics 9: Privacy, Security, Trust 10: Use & Users The full list of presentations is available at https://socialmediaandsociety.org/smsociety-presentations-2020/ We have also made the Featured Panel on "Diverse Voices: Promises and Perils of Social Media for Diversity" available at https://socialmediaandsociety.org/2020/smsociety2020-how-to-participate/. The panel tackles many of the pressing questions that society is grappling with, including: - Can human society handle the connection of diverse and divergent (often conflicting) voices on social media? Is empowering every voice via social media a net good? - Under what conditions can social media build bridges across differences? When does social media reinforce division? Background about the conference: The 2020 International Conference on Social Media & Society (#SMSociety) is an annual gathering of social media researchers from around the world. It is the premier venue for sharing and discovering new peer-reviewed interdisciplinary research on how social media platforms impact society. Organized by the Social Media Lab (http://socialmedialab.ca/) at the Ted Rogers School of Management (https://www.ryerson.ca/tedrogersschool/) at Ryerson University (https://www.ryerson.ca/), #SMSociety provides participants with opportunities to exchange ideas, present original research, learn about recent and ongoing studies, and network with peers. This year's conference is convened in partnership with colleagues from DePaul University College of Communication (https://communication.depaul.edu/Pages/default.aspx), Studio Chi (https://las.depaul.edu/centers-and-institutes/studio-chi/Pages/default.aspx) and the College of Computing and Digital Media (https://www.cdm.depaul.edu/Pages/default.aspx) in Chicago. -- Anatoliy Gruzd, Conference chair On behalf of the 2020 #SMSociety Organizing Committee https://socialmediaandsociety.org/about/ email@example.com -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: 2020-07-23 18:43:40+00:00 From: Aliya Reich Subject: New 2020 Virtual DLF Forum CFP Now Live - Deadline 8/17 The Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR, https://www.clir.org) and the Digital Library Federation (DLF, https://diglib.org/) are thrilled to announce our new Call for Proposals for our virtual DLF Forum this fall. We have a lot of exciting things planned and are excited to share the first steps with you. First, we've made some adjustments to the dates on which we'll hold our events this fall. * The DLF Forum (https://forum2020.diglib.org/) will take place on Monday, November 9, and Tuesday, November 10. * Learn@DLF (https://forum2020.diglib.org/learndlf/) will be presented with the DLF Forum this year. (We expect it to return as a pre-conference workshop day in future years.) * NDSA's Digital Preservation 2020 (https://ndsa.org/conference/) will take place on Thursday, November 12. * CLIR's Digitizing Hidden Collections Symposium (https://www.clir.org/hiddencollections/2020-symposium/) is postponed to 2022, but all are invited to join for 5 for 5: Conversations on Five Years of Digitizing Hidden Collections (https://www.clir.org/hiddencollections/2020-conversations/), a day of curated programming on Friday, November 13. Full info about the new VIRTUAL DLF Forum CFP is here (https://forum2020.diglib.org/call-for-proposals), but we can't resist sharing some other details with you here: * Our guiding focus for this year's Forum is building community while apart, chosen as a top priority by respondents to our recent DLF community survey. As one step to this end, all of our 2020 events will be free of charge, and resources will be made widely available after our events. Later this summer we'll share information about how to register for our events. * While we welcome proposals from anyone with interesting work to share, this year the planning committee will prioritize submissions from BIPOC people and people working at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and other BIPOC-centered libraries, archives, and museums, in alignment with our commitment to do more to ensure marginalized voices have better and more central representation. * Accepted presentations and panels will be delivered via pre-recorded video that will 'go live' at specific times during the conference, and there will be some method for community discussion during 'watch parties' as videos are posted. * Because of our virtual format and our emphasis on bringing our community together, we will be offering a greatly reduced number of sessions than we typically offer in our traditional in-person DLF Forum. To make space for as many voices as possible, individuals may present only once on the conference program. However, we will offer additional ways for community members to share content and resources whether conference proposals are accepted or not. More information and full details about the new VIRTUAL DLF Forum CFP are here: https://forum2020.diglib.org/call-for-proposals If you submitted a proposal to the original CFP, you should have received an email from us already about next steps. If you did not receive an email, reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline to submit to the new Forum CFP is Monday, August 17, at 11:59pm Eastern Time. If you have any questions, please write to us at email@example.com. Thanks, Aliya for Team CLIR/DLF P.S. Want to stay updated on all things #DLFforum?
