*Infosocial**: Where information and the social sciences collide, Oct
12-13, 2012
*A graduate student conference hosted by the Media, Technology and Society (
MTS) program at Northwestern University*

*As the information infrastructure of contemporary social life becomes
increasingly complex and visible, disparate modes of inquiry converge. We
are surrounded by a proliferation of data that provides a unique window
into a wide array of individual and collective behavior. The changes in the
visibility and availability of such data have challenged the technical and
conceptual boundaries of the social sciences. This, in turn, has triggered
a growth in interdisciplinary collaboration and in methodological and
theoretical innovation. Our conference aims to contribute to these
collaborative and innovative developments by bringing together graduate
student scholarship from across the academic spectrum.*

*We seek papers authored by graduate students that address relevant topics
within and across disciplines, including contributions from communication
and media studies, sociology, psychology, computer science, science and
technology studies, information science, political science, and
anthropology, among others. *

*Possible submission topics include (but are not limited to):**

   - Linked data/semantic web and society ****
   - Privacy and information management ****
   - Measuring online behavior ****
   - Collective action and crowd sourcing ****
   - Internet skill and literacy ****
