 Hi All.

I'm happy to write that the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) is now
funding:  “A research coordination network (RCN) for Digital Societies and
Technologies”.  The focus of the RCN is towards community building for
sociotech scholars.

This initial funding for this Digital Societies and Technologies RCN will
run through December, 2016 in  support of three broad efforts: (1)
sociotech community building; (2) planning and piloting shared sociotech
resources (heading towards a community cyberinfrastructure) and (3)
expanding the breadth, depth, impact and visibility of sociotech

The Digital Societies and Technologies RCN and the successful Consortium
for the Science of Sociotechnical Systems (CSST) summer research institutes
( serve a similar community of scholars. However, the
summer research institute is not a part of the RCN effort – it remains both
a vibrant activity and distinct from the RCN.

Beyond sharing the good news, we write to draw your attention to
opportunities to participate in events supported by the Digital Societies
and Technologies RCN.  Calls for participation in specific events and
projects will begin being announced over the coming months and much of the
RCN funding is to support workshops of various kinds.  We’ll need your help
to plan, organize, staff and participate in these!

Feel free to share this news with sociotech colleagues and others.

Sincerely, the RCN steering committee:

Steve Sawyer (PI) (Syracuse), Wayne Lutters (Co-PI) (UM-BC), Brian Butler
(Co-PI) (UM-CP), Diane Bailey (Texas), Dan Cosley (Cornell), Tom Finholt
(Michigan), Sean Goggins (Drexel) and Andrea Tapia (Penn State).
