New Publishing & Professional Development Opportunities For #SocialMedia Researchers

The 6th Social Media and Society Conference (SMSociety15) will be held in Toronto on July 27-29, 2015.

SMSociety15 is a multi- and interdisciplinary academic conference focusing exclusively on social media research. The conference brings together top researchers and practitioners from academia and industry who are interested in studying and understanding social media impact and implications on society. But above all it’s a collision-space for ideas, theories, methods and career-changing “aha!” insights and the premier venue for presenting new research on social media.

Presenters come from across the disciplines including the social science, the humanities, business, communications and computer science. The conference accepts a wide variety of submission types including: Workshops, Panel Presentations, Full Papers, Work-In-Progress (WIP) and Research Poster Presentations.

We hope you can join our growing community of social media researchers! Please check out the Call for Proposals for more information.


New for 2015, we have added additional publishing  and  professional development opportunities for researchers including:
