The deadline is fast approaching for submissions to Online Social Networks 2004, but I thought I'd post it anyway. From the call for papers:
Your session proposal should fall into one of the following three focus areas:
1. Online social networks in organizations - Who is using them and why? What challenges and opportunities do they present? What are the practical applications of OSNs?
2. Online social networks for personal social and business use - How are individuals using OSNs?
3. Online social networks in the political arena - How have political parties and politicians used OSNs to raise money, explore issues, and mobilize at the grassroots level?
Submission of proposals: no later than 30 August 2004
Notification of acceptance: September 2004
Submit your session proposal by e-mail to email@example.com with OSN2004 call for sessions in the subject field. Include a brief description of your session (as it might appear in a conference program - title, presenter(s), description), how you would engage participants in the dialogue, and the focus area (1, 2, or 3 above). Sessions might include one or more of the following, asynchronous panel discussion, online workshop, presentation, chat, teleconference, demonstration, audio, video. The conference fee is waived for presenters.
If your session proposal does not fit one of the three focus areas, you are encouraged to submit it for consideration as a special session.
