Dear #SMSociety Conference Community,
As a second wave of COVID-19 infection looms, we are writing to update you on the difficult decision we have made to cancel the 2021 International Conference on Social Media and Society.
This decision was not made lightly, and we share your disappointment that we will not be able to gather together next year. As we evaluated the potential options for the conference, it became clear that there were too many hurdles and unknowns to plan for and overcome.
Our mission at #SMSociety has always been to provide participants with opportunities to learn, share ideas, and network with peers. Until we can see you in-person again, here is how you can stay in touch with the #SMSociety community during these uncertain times.
- Use our mailing listserv to share news and to stay up to date
- Join the conversation on Twitter via the #SMSociety hashtag
- Many videos from #SMSociety2020 are still available until next summer. Watch them before they are gone!
- Check out publications from previous iterations of the conference.
Please feel free to contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Thank you again for your support.
Anatoliy Gruzd & Philip Mai
