ABOUT THE EVENT:
This is a two-day symposium and workshop organized and hosted by the 
Social Media Lab (http://SocialMediaLab.ca) at Dalhousie University and 
supported by MITACS, SSHRC, NCE GRAND, Dalhousie’s Faculty of Computer 
Science and Faculty of Management.

It is no secret that social media has become mainstream in recent years, 
and its adoption has skyrocketed. As a result of its growing popularity, 
users’ online contributions and membership in online social networks 
have exploded. With a multitude of voices all talking at once on social 
media, finding interesting and influential voices among the masses can 
be difficult. The objective of this 2-day workshop is to bring together 
experts in social media and online social networks from both the 
academic and business worlds, to share ideas on the best practices 
around how to study the impact of social media on our society, and 
specifically how to measure influence on social media. The workshop will 
provide researchers in this area an opportunity to present and debate 
their ideas, and provide graduate students with the opportunity to build 
academic and professional contacts, present their research, and learn 
about latest research in this area from a multidisciplinary perspective.

SCHEDULE:
During the first day, the participants will present and conduct 
discussions based on their work in this area. Over the second day, the 
participants will be tasked to brainstorm and develop new metrics for 
studying and measuring influence and engagement on social media.

REGISTRATION FEE: None

STUDENT TRAVEL SUBSIDIES:
A limited number of competitive travel subsidies ($500 + 3-night shared 
accommodation with another student in a local hotel) will be available 
to PhD and Postdoctoral students from Canadian academic institutions. 
Please indicate on your submission whether you would like to be 
considered for a travel subsidy.

TYPES OF SUBMISSIONS:
1) Position Papers: Proposals should be in the form of a position paper 
(up to 1,000 words excluding references) and formatted using the ACM 
Proceedings Format (a template is available at 
http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates). The 
position paper must be on a completed or well-developed project relating 
to the main theme of the workshop. If selected, the author(s) will be 
invited to give a 15-minute oral presentation followed by a 5 min Q&A 
period.

2) “Work-in-progress” Posters: Posters will display visual presentations 
of early-stage projects. Proposals should be in the form of a short
