Abstract:This workshop builds on and extends an effort begun in 2005 that led to the 2008 Summer Research Institute of the Consortium for the Science of Socio-Technical Systems (CSST). This Research Institute, supported by the National Science Foundation and held at the University of Michigan, brought together a diverse set of researchers, including the fields of science and technology studies, human-computer interaction, management and organizational studies, library and information science, sociology, social informatics, and computer science, to begin exploring and framing a future research agenda centered on socio-technical research. We now propose a workshop as a follow-on to the 2009 iConference to invite iSchool faculty and students to join the emerging CSST network and work to tailor its broad goals to both reflect and support the research being pursued within the greater iSchool community. We see this workshop as continuing and expanding on the 2008 Summer Research Institute.
