We would like to take this opportunity to extend an invitation to you and your colleagues to submit a paper for possible inclusion in:

The International Conference in Information Science and Social Media – ISSOME 2013
Date:  September 11-13, 2013
Place: Borås, Sweden

In recent years, research on social media has had a dramatic development in most research areas within the humanities and the social sciences. It is also notable that an increasing number of scholars are embracing the everyday concept social media as a label for their research, thereby sidelining interesting theoretical competitors such as new media, participatory media, participatory culture, web 2.0 and social technology. The emerging conceptual ecology surrounding Internet-based user generated platforms are currently in need of critical scrutiny.

It is important to discuss the role of information science in this developing research area. What are the specific perspectives and added values that information scientists bring to the study of social media?
What territories and boundaries can we see have emerged? Furthermore, what fruitful synergies between information science and other disciplines could be developed?

We invite researchers worldwide to submit original research within the topics of the conference. Submissions should be extended abstracts of no longer than 1500 words. All submissions will be double-blind peer-reviewed.

For more information visit the conference’s official website at: and please help us to distribute this information as widely as possible.

We look forward to receiving your submissions and meeting you in Borås.
