Doctoral consortium and PI meeting on social-computational systems
Professor Paul Resnick received a grant from the National Science Foundation to host a doctoral symposium and meeting of Principal Investigators for the Social-Computational Systems (SoCS) programs in July 2012. All PIs and co-PIs funded through 2010-2012 SoCS programs were welcome to attend. Participants shared insights and ideas with each other about research in the emerging new area of social-computational systems, with the specific goal of helping to strengthen the nascent research community.
A doctoral symposium was held prior to the PIs meeting. Participating students experienced a full day of presentations and discussions of doctoral research, mentored by a diverse set of experienced faculty.
