Aligning with the theme of the 2020 ASIS&T Annual Meeting, Special Interest Group Social Informatics (SIG SI) will hold its 16th annual symposium in conjunction with SIG Social Media (SIG SM) and SIG Information Ethics and Policy (SIG IEP), allowing for ASIS&T members to better discuss how we might work collaboratively as “change agents actively addressing society’s grand challenges” (ASIS&T, 2020). The purpose of this workshop is to investigate how research and practice focused on the interaction of people, technology, and society may address societal grand challenges, including addressing the United Nation’s 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. Submissions may include empirical, critical, conceptual, and theoretical work, as well as practice cases and demonstrations. This collaborative workshop will consist of interactive panel and breakout sessions.
