BlogTalk 2009
The 6th International Conference on Social Software
Jeju Island, Korea | September 1st and 2nd, 2009

http://2009.blogtalk.net/

= Overview =

Following the international success of the last five BlogTalk events,
the next 
BlogTalk - to be held in Jeju Island, Korea on September 1st and 2nd,
2009 - is 
continuing with its focus on social software, while remaining committed
to the 
diverse cultures, practices and tools of our emerging networked society.
The 
conference (which this year will be co-located with Lift Asia 09) is
designed 
to maintain a sustainable dialog between developers, innovative
academics and 
scholars who study social software and social media, practitioners and 
administrators in corporate and educational settings, and other general
members 
of the social software and social media communities.

We invite you to submit a proposal for presentation at the BlogTalk 2009

conference. Possible areas include, but are not limited to:

    * Forms and consequences of emerging social software practices
    * Social software in enterprise and educational environments
    * The political impact of social software and social media
    * Applications, prototypes, concepts and standards

= Participants and proposal categories =

Due to the interdisciplinary nature of the conference, audiences will
come from 
different fields of practice and will have different professional
backgrounds. 
We strongly encourage proposals to bridge these cultural differences and
to be 
understandable for all groups alike. Along those lines, we will offer
three 
different submission categories:

    * Academic
    * Developer
    * Practitioner

For academics, BlogTalk is an ideal conference for presenting and
exchanging 
research work from current and future social software projects at an 
international level. For developers, the conference is a great
opportunity to 
fly ideas, visions and prototypes in front of a distinguished audience
of 
peers, to discuss, to link-up and to learn (developers may choose to
give a 
practical demonstration rather than a formal presentation if they so
wish). For 
practitioners, this is a venue to discuss use cases for social software
and 
social media, and to report on any results you may have with like-minded

individuals.

= Submitting your proposals =

You must submit a one-page abstract of the work you intend to present
for 
review purposes (not to exceed 600 words). Please upload your submission
along 
with some personal information at http://tinyurl.com/blogtalk2009 and
you will 
receive a confirmation of the arrival of your submission immediately.
The 
submission deadline is June 27th, 2009.

Following notification of acceptance, you will be invited to submit a
short or 
long paper (four or eight pages respectively) for the conference
proceedings. 
BlogTalk is a peer-reviewed conference.

= Timeline and important dates =

    * One-page abstract submission deadline: June 27th, 2009
    * Notification of acceptance or rejection: July 13th, 2009
    * Full paper submission deadline: August 27th, 2009

(Due to the tight schedule we expect that there will be no deadline
extension. 
As with previous BlogTalk conferences, we will work hard to endow a fund
for 
supporting travel costs. As soon as we review all of the papers we will
be able 
to announce more details.)

= Chairs and Organizers =

John Breslin, Thomas N. Burg, Hong-Gee Kim
Hak-Lae Kim, Seokchan (Channy) Yun
