A decade after the passing of Rob Kling, these scholars will come together to discuss the past and current state of social informatics research. The panelists will provide an overview of the trajectory of social informatics from its emergence in Norway in the early 1980s to its current status as a scientific and intellectual movement uniquely positioned to investigate computerization and society. Conference attendees can view the full panel description in the ASIS&T 2013 proceedings.
