Second European Conference on Social Media


Following the success of the inaugural ECSM in July 2014, there is now a final call for papers for the 2nd European Conference on Social Media – ECSM 2015 which is being held at the Polytechnic Institute of Porto, Portugal on the 9-10 July 2015.

Social media is present in our everyday life, influencing the way we communicate, collaborate, learn, do business, build relationships and understand society. As a result of the rapid adoption of social media there is a need to reflect on the practices and identify improvements and seek solutions to overcome barriers.

This Second European Conference on Social Media seeks to establish a platform for researchers and practitioners with a wide range of approaches to engage with the impact, use and potential of social media across disciplines. Drawing on best practice in social media we will call on interested parties, be they practitioners, scholars or doctoral students, to bring together and share examples, cases, theories and analysis of social media.

Advocates of the use of social media in student research, please note that the Business eLearning research group at the University of Brighton will again be running a Student Social Media Showcase in July 2015 in Brighton, UK. Please do encourage your students to submit 5 minute videos to the SSM Showcase – we plan a great event involving university students and school students on FRIDAY 3rd JULY 2015 – same venue, Huxley Building, Brighton. More details in the New Year.
