The ASIS&T Special Interest Group Social Informatics (SIG-SI) and Information Ethics and Policy (IEP) will present this half-day workshop. The workshop’s theme aligns well with the ASIS&T 2021 Annual Meeting theme and offers an opportunity to focus scholarly attention on the social, cultural, political, and economic shaping of sociotechnical systems and their consequences. We invite a range of scholarly sociotechnical inquiries alongside ethical, practical, and policy perspectives across a range of disciplines and sectors. The workshop will provide a physical and virtual space to share and exchange experiences and ideas or suggest theories and directions for future work among international SI researchers and practitioners. The workshop will broadly appeal to the ASIS&T community, particularly to researchers interested in sociotechnical and ethical information or technology issues. We also welcome professionals from industry, ICT communities, and human rights organizations. Our aims include the following: collaboratively produce short- and long-term research agendas to address pressing critical and diversity concerns around technology; facilitate collaboration; and strategically prioritize research that will support empirically driven policy making, ethical decision-making, and practice for social justice and well-being with pervasive and emerging sociotechnical systems.
