Dear friends:

The Information Systems Group of the London School of Economics will host
the Social Study of IT Open Research Forum (SSIT-ORF), on 21st and 22nd of
March 2007. This will follow the SSIT Workshop at the LSE
(http://www.lse.ac.uk/collections/informationSystems/newsAndEvents/2007event
s/SSIT7.htm).

The Open Research Forum will be an opportunity for IS researchers to present
their work and discuss a broad range of themes relating to the SSIT in an
informal, constructive setting.

Primarily, the Forum provides an ideal opportunity for PhD and young IS
researchers to present their work and raise questions on issues of their
concern-substantive, theoretical, methodological or practical. It is also a
useful experience for other researchers wishing to understand what SSIT is
like, though their research approach may be different ­ e.g. from an
engineering or business perspective.

In previous years the Forum attracted also experienced SSIT researchers,
supervisors and PhD programme directors and we had stimulating discussions
about the merits and challenges of SSIT research.  There will be a number of
short presentations (about 10 minutes) and panel discussions with plenty of
time to focus on emerging questions and issues.

Registrations for the SSIT-ORF are currently taking place. Those who are
interested in presenting should send a summary (up to 600 words) of their
work to SSITORF at lse.ac.uk. Those who are interested in participating
without a presentation should only apply for attendance at the same email
address. As space is limited, places will be allocated on a first come,
first served basis. The closing date for applications is by the 5th of march
of 2007.

Looking forward to meeting you in March,

SSIT-ORF Committee.
