Social Networking technologies such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn are a main tool for communication in all walks of life. They help to stay in touch with friends, improve career opportunities, improve the communication within your company, or are thought of as the backbone for future government.
But there are dangers and limitations in using these Cyber Networking technologies, as witnessed by various news stories in the past years. In this one-day event we discuss these issues from various perspectives, asking the question: can businesses, government and individuals trust these technologies?
The 1st SiDE internal workshop allowed all researchers to get together and swap ideas around a series of interactive sessions aimed at collaborative problem solving.
Ongoing work within all the activities and perspectives was presented and explored from a multidisciplinary perspective and a follow up workshop with a focus on “Users” was planned to be held in Dundee on 10-11 Jan 2011.
SiDE PhDs attended the the 1st DE Doctoral Training Centre Summer School hosted by the Horizon DE Hub at Nottingham University. The two day event was focused on the Lifelong Contextual Footprint.
