Social media and social networking sites have become important objects of interdisciplinary study. Collaborative Organizations and Social Media (COSM) is a one-day symposium which will consider the ways in which developing scholarship might be incorporated into thinking critically about how social computing may be affecting and even forming organizations. The focus will be around exploring the use of social media in collaborative organizational structures. We invite participants to this inaugural conference. Details at:

The program features invited speakers Nicole Ellison (Michigan), George Ritzer (UMD), Peter Gloor (MIT), and Jennifer Earl (Arizona).

Dates and Location

The conference will be held April 12, 2013 on the campus of Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine. The location is easily accessible from Boston as well as by air from Portland Airport [PWM].
