UCSB Social Computing Workshop

Santa Barbara, California

Friday, May 30, 2008

UCSB Bren Hall 1424

 

The UCSB Social Computing Group hosted a workshop on the present and future of social computing with guests Joan DiMicco (IBM Collaborative User Experience Group), Tad Hirsch (MIT Media Lab), Peter Kollock (Sociology Dept., UCLA), Larry Sanger (a founder of Wikipedia, Editor-in-Chief of the Citizendium), and Nancy Van House (School of Information, UC Berkeley). The workshop was a small-scale, by-invitation-only event designed to facilitate brainstorming around a proposed UCSB NSF IGERT in Social Computing.

 

Detailed Workshop Schedule:

8:00 a.m. Catered Breakfast
8:30 - 9:15 a.m. Introduction (Alan Liu): Brief overviews of UCSB Social Computing Group, goals of proposed IGERT in Social Computing, and our collective perspective on social computing. Self-introductions by speakers and Social Computing Group will follow in response to the following questions: "something that I have recently been working on related to social computing that really excites me," and/or "a problem related to social computing that I have been wrestling with."
9:30 - 10:45 a.m. Conversation Roundtable 1 (Co-leads: Joan DiMicco and Alan Liu [slides]): Each roundtable will start with highly brief, informal position statements answering the following seed question: "where do you see social computing, or social computing research, going?"
