IASSIST 2010 Call For Papers

In case you haven't seen this already, here's the call for papers for the next IASSIST meeting:

IASSIST 2010

Social Data and Social Networking:
Connecting Social Science Communities across the Globe
1-4 June 2010
Ithaca, NY, USA

IASSIST 2010, the 36th Annual Conference of the International Association for Social Science Information Service and Technology (IASSIST) will be hosted by the Cornell Institute for Social and Economic Research (CISER) and Cornell University Library (CUL) and will be held at Cornell University, in Ithaca, New York, USA, on 1-4 June 2010.

The theme of this year's conference is Social Data and Social Networking: Connecting Social Science Communities across the Globe. Social science has begun to feel the impact of the dramatic shift in communication patterns globally, where social networking and other digital media trends are changing how social scientists study the world around them. This theme is intended to stimulate discussion about the impact of social networking on the creation, collection, sharing, storage, preservation, dissemination, confidentiality, licensing of, and access to data. Of particular interest is how social connectivity has facilitated multi-site and cross-national social science research.

A webform for submission of proposals will be available on the conference web site: http://ciser.cornell.edu/IASSIST/ from 12 October 2009.


Deadline for submission: 30 November 2009.

Notification of acceptance: 1 February 2010.

For more information about the conference, including travel and accommodation, see the attached PDF Call for Papers or visit the conference web site at:

IASSIST is an international organization of professionals working in and with information technology and data services to support research and teaching in the social sciences. Typical workplaces include data archives/libraries, statistical agencies, research centers, libraries, academic departments, government departments, and non-profit organizations, see http://www.iassistdata.org for further information.


As usual, I suspect that ICPSR will submit several presentations and papers for the conference. I think an update on either (or both) of the recent tech-oriented grants might be appropriate: using the cloud to deliver sensitive and under-utilized data, and using Fedora to preserve and delivery social science datasets and documentation.
