WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION
-----------------------------------------------
Communication via short, real-time message broadcast, also known as
microblogging, is relatively a new communication channel for people to share
information. We use microblogging as an umbrella term to include status
updates from social networks such as Facebook, and message-exchange services
such as Twitter. Recent research has shown that people employ these services
to share informal information they would likely not otherwise publish
through other mediums (i.e., email, phone, IM, or weblogs). Microblogging
has become quite popular quickly, catching researchersí interests as both a
means of public, social information exchange, and a medium for collaboration
and communication in the work context.
The goal of this workshop is to provide a forum for researchers and
practitioners from academia and industry to exchange insights into how
microblogs are used in enterprises, academic and social settings, developing
an agenda for what and how we can learn from and better study this
phenomenon.


CALL FOR POSITION PAPERS
-----------------------------------------------
Submission deadline: January 6, 2010

Participants are asked to submit a 2-page position paper in ACM CHI Format.
We encourage submissions of microblogging research work in both social
context and work settings. Position papers should address specific research
questions of authors' work, methodological approaches, contributions to the
area, important conversations to have for now, and short biographies for
each author. At least one author of each accepted paper needs to register
for the workshop and for one or more days of the conference itself.

Please email submissions to [log in to unmask] using the
subject "CHI 2010 Microblogging Workshop Submission". Submissions are due at
midnight PST Jan 6, 2010. We will notify all participants of acceptance or
rejection on Jan 30th, 2010.
