CfP: STS interventions for studying invisible data infrastructures

Together with colleagues at the Web Science Institute and Web Science Centre for Doctoral Training, we’ve put together an open panel for the 4S 2018 conference, this year in Sydney.

Please note that the deadline is quickly approaching – abstract submissions are due Feb 1!
