The objective of this 2-day event is to bring together experts in social 
media and online social networks from both the academic and business 
worlds to share ideas on the best practices around how to study the 
impact of social media on our society, and specifically how to measure 
influence on social media. The workshop will provide researchers in this 
area an opportunity to present and debate their ideas, and provide 
graduate students with the opportunity to build academic and 
professional contacts, present their research, and learn about the 
latest research in this area from a multidisciplinary perspective.


During the first day (Symposium), the participants will present and 
conduct discussions based on their work in this area. On the second day 
(Workshop), the participants will be tasked to brainstorm and develop 
new metrics for studying and measuring influence and engagement on 
social media.


The registration for the event is now open and the registration form is 
accessible from the event page above. Please feel free to circulate it 
and invite your colleagues and students to attend the event.
