Subject: Updates on Organizations and Social Network Sites workshop at
     Communities and Technologies 2011 - JCMC special issue confirmed

For those studying some aspect of social network site use in
organizational contexts, please consider participating in the
"Organizations and Social Network Sites" workshop to be held at the
Communities and Technologies 2011 conference in Brisbane, Australia.
We have now confirmed that after the workshop, several papers will be
selected and invited for submission to a special issue of the Journal
of Computer Mediated Communication. All papers will undergo a double-
blind review at the journal. However, we will work with the authors of
selected papers to revise their papers to increase the likelihood of
acceptance at JCMC and there will be a special issue devoted to this

Here are the key dates:
April 1, 2011:   submit an extended abstract (1500 words) to Charles
Steinfield ([log in to unmask]) and Marleen Huysman

April 15, 2011:  acceptance notifications for the workshop will be
sent out
