Event Details

We would like to invite you to submit an abstract for our session “SocioTechNet: Socio-technical Network Research" at Sunbelt 2022, scheduled for July 12-16, 2022 in Cairns, Australia (hybrid conference).

Session organizers:  Cathleen M. Stuetzer (University of Technology Dresden) and Ralf Klamma (RWTH Aachen University)


This session aims to explore insights in socio-technical behavior between social actors and technical artifacts within digital social networks (incl. implementation of socio-technological approaches, computational methods, and theoretical aspects of digital sociology). Contributions in the session consider basic, empirical, and methodological issues. This SocioTechNet session should contribute to open up a new perspective on the field of socio-technical network research. Moving toward this perspective promotes the development of new research frameworks, theoretical, and methodological concepts. This session will offer a forum to present contributions on the field of socio-technological networks by focusing on data collection, computational methods, visualization and the use of innovative technology (incl. artificial intelligence (AI)) for socio-technical assessments. Innovative approaches of network research within a broader area of digital social networks are welcome. We invite abstract submissions that contribute to the consolidation of network research in the field of socio-technical networks. The session is organized as a set of paper presentations in terms of the number of twenty-minute slots.
