A reminder that the deadline for position papers for the Workshop on Social Media Question Asking (to be held on February 24, 2013, in conjunction with the ACM CSCW conference in San Antonio, Texas) is approaching on November 16th!

Social media question asking, in which people use Internet technologies to solicit help from other people, is an increasingly common way for people to find information. This workshop aims to bring together researchers studying social media question asking from a variety of perspectives, including social scientists seeking to understand and describe the phenomenon and those seeking to create improved experiences through innovation in system building or user interface design. At the workshop, participants will review the current state of research in this area, and discuss issues relevant to the social media question asking research community, such as how to create public data sets, standardize metrics and measures, and handle privacy and ethical issues. Following the workshop we hope that participants will join us in sharing our enthusiasm for recent developments in social media question asking research with a broader audience through contributions to an edited volume or journal special issue on this topic.

Position papers are due on November 16th. A more detailed workshop description and CFP are available at

This workshop is jointly organized by Microsoft Research (Meredith Ringel Morris, JaimeTeevan), Northwestern University (Darren Gergle, Brent Hecht), and the University of Michigan (Mark Ackerman, Lada Adamic, Nicole Ellison, Cliff Lampe).
