Four PhD students from the Centre for Social Informatics –  Iris Buunk, Lyndsey Jenkins, John Mowbray, and Frances Ryan – are in Zadar, Croatia this week for Information Seeking in Context (ISIC) 2016. Today they are taking part in the pre-conference doctoral workshop. Tomorrow they will join the conference itself, which continues until Friday. You can follow both the doctoral workshop and conference on Twitter hashtag #isic2016.

Lyndsey and John are displaying posters on their doctoral work at the conference. Lyndsey’s poster is on workplace learning and innovation, and John’s is on networking and social media in job search.

On Thursday Iris and Frances are delivering papers co-authored with their PhD supervisors. Iris’ paper opens the debate on methodological choice and routes to implementation for studies that are subject to practical constraints imposed by the context in which they are situated. Frances’ paper is concerned with some of the preliminary findings of her doctoral study on the building and assessment of personal reputations using online information. The two papers will subsequently be published within the conference proceedings in a special issue of Information Research.

As well as designing their posters and writing up their papers for the conference, all four students have blogged about their preparations for, and expectations of, the event. Please follow the links below to find out more about their contributions to ISIC2016.
