> CALL FOR PAPERS: Festschrift for Rob Kling organized for by Roberta 
> Lamb,
> Steve Sawyer & Eleanor Wynn for Information Technology & People
> http://www.emeraldinsight.com/itp.htm
>
> A Festschrift is a volume of writings in tribute or memorial to a 
> scholar. We
> offer this Festschrift to honor Rob Kling's legacy, and to celebrate 
> his life
> and scholarship in a special issue of Information Technology & People. 
>  Rob
> was a regular contributor to the journal and a member of the editorial 
> board
> since 1986.
>
> For this special issue, we seek papers that highlight, extend, and 
> critically
> examine the concepts and issues of social informatics.  The papers will
> continue the vitality of the field he helped to shape and maintain the 
> energy
> that Rob brought to this work and to society. Contributions submitted 
> to the
> Festschrift should provide compelling, empirically and conceptually 
> grounded
> insights that advance our understanding of social and organizational
> informatics and reflect the frameworks Rob fostered.  Social 
> Informatics (SI)
> research examines social aspects of computerization: the cyclical 
> influence of
> information technology on societies and organizations, and of 
> institutions on
> the construction of information technologies. These themes are 
> variously
> labeled
>         *       social impacts of computing,
>         *       social analysis of computing,
>         *       studies of computer-mediated communication (CMC),
>         *       information policy,
>         *       computers and society.
>
> We solicit submissions that reflect the breadth of Rob's work. 
> Submitted
> papers should be about 7500 words and should be submitted to
> <http://www.itandpeople.org>  To make the scope of this special issue
> consistent with the editorial mission of Information Technology & 
> People, we
> seek papers that emphasize organizational studies, although topics 
> like the
> impact of institutional computing on social issues will fit.
>
> In addition to peer reviewed content, we will invite some of Rob's 
> close
> colleagues for essays  (about 1500 words, inclusive) that describe his
> intellectual  breadth and impact.  Rob's passing leaves both a legacy 
> and an
> opportunity to continue the directions that he began. The invited 
> papers are
> meant to be retrospective, while submitted papers will showcase the 
> continuing
> growth of Social Informatics.
