We happily invite you to our monthly virtual brown bag which takes place each first Wednesday of the month. This virtual gathering is an informal continuation of the successful annual COINs conference series. Our COINs conferences have been taking place since 2009 but this year's conference was canceled due to the global pandemic.
We invite researchers and practitioners in all areas of social network analysis, emotion prediction, and natural language processing, who study communication networks among humans, but also communication with other species such as dogs and horses, or plants, to join the brown bag.
Contact us via E-Mail if you would like to get a Zoom invite.
The Brown Bag is an informal hour-long virtual meeting focused on a specific theme or topic, usually on the first Wednesday of the month which is conducted on Zoom. There will be three to four short presentations of researchers, graduate students, and practitioners presenting novel and even far-out research ideas mostly in the pre-publication stage, followed by a discussion.
Collaborative innovation networks, or COINs, are cyber teams of self-motivated people with a collective vision, to innovatively collaborate by sharing ideas, information, and work enabled by technology. COINs are powered by swarm creativity, wherein people work together in a structure that enables a fluid creation and exchange of ideas. Patterns of collaborative innovation frequently follow an identical path, from creator to COIN to collaborative learning network (CLN) to collaborative interest network (CIN).
Our conferences have been taking place since 2009 but this year's 2020 conference has been canceled due to the global pandemic.
