The Australian Consortium for Social and Political Research, Inc. 
(ACSPRI) Social Science Methodology Conference is being held in 
Sydney, 1-3 December 2010.

I am convening a session titled "Social Research Using Digital Trace 

Vast quantities of data are generated daily in social media 
environments such as blogsites, microblogs (Twitter), social 
networking sites (e.g. Facebook) and virtual worlds (e.g. Second 
Life). However, using these data for social science research poses 
significant methodological challenges. Prospective participants are 
invited to submit proposals for papers focusing on quantitative and 
qualitative research methods for digital trace data.

Both refereed papers and work in progress presentations that fit into 
this session are welcome.  The deadline for submissions is Friday 1st 
October (this Friday!).

Please submit your proposal or paper to: http://www.acspri.org.au/

Please contact me if you would like further information.
