This a one-day conference taking place in Lyon on April 24, 2015. Do consider submitting an abstract!
The impetus for co-organizing this conference was the realization that Twitter is used in many different corners in academia, and yet there is little interdisciplinary communication on it.
Researchers are not always aware of how Twitter is used in slightly or totally different ways across the scientific spectrum. Great collaborations, or at least new insights for research, could be born from a day of exchange on the varieties of ways Twitter is used in academic research.
