Social media and social networking sites have become important objects of interdisciplinary study. "Collaborative Organizations and Social Media” is a one-day symposium which will consider the ways in which the developing scholarship on social media and social networking might be incorporated into thinking critically about how social computing may be affecting and even forming organizations. The symposium will present a variety of current research in this emerging field. The focus will be around exploring the use of social media in collaborative organizational structures.
The symposium would like to tackle, in particular, the ways in which we can use the insights of multiple disciplines to answer these questions. We plan to curate some open submission panels as well as an invited panel and a keynote session on social media and collaborative organizations.
