Dear colleagues,

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
Third International Conference: Social Science and the Internet

On Friday, July 1, 2016 the Human-Technology-Interaction Group at Eindhoven University of Technology (NL) will host the third conference meeting on "Social Science and the Internet".

Aiming for an interdisciplinary mix of participants, the conference will provide ample opportunity for discussion in an informal atmosphere.
