Next week a group of us from the Centre for Social Informatics will be travelling to Loughborough University to participate at the 2nd International Data and Information Management Conference. We are making three contributions at this event:
- Iris Buunk is presenting a poster on her research into the impact of social media tools on tacit knowledge sharing practices between employees within public sector organisations
- John Mowbray is presenting a co-authored paper entitled ‘Social networking sites and employment status: an investigation based on Understanding Society data’ (co-authors Professor Robert Raeside, Professor Hazel Hall, and Dr Peter Robertson)
- Frances Ryan is presenting a co-authored paper entitled ‘Personal online reputation: the development of an approach to investigate how personal reputation is evaluated and managed in online environments’ (co-authors Peter Cruickshank, Professor Hazel Hall, and Alistair Lawson)
The full programme with details of all the sessions is available on the conference web site. Here the profiles of invited speakers – John Beckford (Beckford Consulting), Danny Budzak (London Legacy Development Corporation), Christine Borgman (University of California), Andrew Jack (Financial Times), Stewart Robinson (Loughborough University), Neil Stansfield (Defence Science and Technology Laboratory) – can also be found.
The conference is hosted by the Centre for Information Management and takes place on Tuesday 12th and Wednesday 13th January 2016. Registration is open until midnight on Sunday 10th January.
