BlogTalk 2008 Announced

The 5th international BlogTalk conference on social software has been announced!
BlogTalk 2008
Where: Cork, Ireland
When: 3 – 4 March, 2008


"The conference is designed to maintain a sustainable dialog between developers, innovative academics and scholars who study social software, practitioners and administrators in corporate and educational settings, and other general members of the social software community.

We invite you to submit a proposal for presentation at the BlogTalk 2008 conference. Possible areas include, but are not limited to:

* Forms and consequences of emerging social software practices
* Social software in enterprise and educational environments
* The political impact of social software
* Applications, prototypes, concepts and standards

Participants and proposal categories:

Due to the interdisciplinary nature of the conference, audiences will come from different fields of practice and will have different professional backgrounds. We strongly encourage proposals to bridge these cultural differences and to be understandable for all groups alike. Along those lines, we will offer three different submission categories:

* Academic
* Developer
* Practitioner

For academics, BlogTalk is an ideal conference for presenting and exchanging research work from current and future social software projects at an international level. For developers, the conference is a great opportunity to fly ideas, visions and prototypes in front of a distinguished audience of peers, to discuss, to link-up and to learn (developers may choose to give a practical demonstration rather than a formal presentation if they so wish). For practitioners, this is a venue to discuss use cases for social software and to report on any results you may have with like-minded individuals."

Proposal submission deadline: November 16th, 2007
(and it’s peer-reviewed – just in case you need the "brownie" points)!

It will coincide with start of the academic year and start of semester, but I’m sure the students won’t mind a week of self-directed activities!!! 😉
See you there!
