Scientific Social Objects

Created: Monday 24 October 2011 18:00:15 (UTC)


Sean Bechhofer presented Scientific Social Objects at the 1st International Workshop on Social Object Networks held in conjunction with 3rd IEEE Conference on Social Computing (SocialCom 2011), 9th-11th October 2011 in Boston, MA, USA.

Scientific research is increasingly conducted digitally and online, and consequently we are seeing the emergence of new digital objects shared as part of the conduct and discourse of science. These Scientific Social Objects are more than lumps of domain-specific data: they may comprise multiple components which can also be shared separately and independently, and some contain descriptions of scientific processes from which new objects will be generated. Using the myExperiment social website as a case study we explore Scientific Social Objects and discuss their evolution.

Slides are available on the wiki and on SlideShare.
