Here is a conference for those in Europe: a meeting at the Maternushaus in Cologne, Germany is the 5th International Conference on e-Social Science. The conference goals:
The aim of the annual international conference on e-Social Science is to bring together leading representatives of the social science, e-Infrastructure, cyberinfrastructure and e-Research communities in order to improve mutual awareness and promote coordinated activities to accelerate research, development and deployment of powerful, new methods and tools for the social sciences and beyond.
We invite contributions from members of the social science, e-Infrastructure, cyberinfrastructure and e-Research communities with experience of, or interests in:
* exploring, developing, and applying new methods, practices, and tools afforded by new infrastructure technologies – such as the Grid and Web 2.0 – in order to further social science research; and
* studying issues impacting on the wider take-up of e-Research.
