Online Social Networks Conference

From the conference website :
OSN2005 will be a summit for all those interested in working with social networking processes, tools, and media. In addition to attending many workshops, panels, and presentations by leading experts and practitioners, attendees will have the opportunity to be part of a community with a significant role in defining the future direction of online social networking. If you want to help shape this industry, come to OSN2005!

Participants attend by logging into the password protected event environment from any web browser, at any time of the day or night. Spread out over a two week period, most sessions will be asynchronous (not everyone is attending at the same time) allowing participants to attend at any time. This will allow you to schedule when and how often you would like to attend. Presentations, questions & answers, and interactive dialogue remain accessible throughout the entire event. The Caucus software remembers exactly what you've seen and what is new to you each time you log in.
Interesting sessions include The Library Blogosphere: Toward a Working Taxonomy, Advanced Knowledge Practices In OSNs, Flickr: Evolution of a Photo-based Social Network, and WIKIS: A new collaboration infrastructure for organizations. The full program is available here.
