Brief conference-writing update
It takes a lot of work to cut an 8-page conference paper down into 4 pages, but we finally managed it. I used my extra hour on Sunday morning (courtesy of the 3am end of daylight savings time) to finish rewriting the longer version of our Trust & Reputation paper, cutting it down for the 4-page poster papers format, and received publishing approval from the CRC this afternoon.
So, Trust, Reputation and the Small Firm: Building Online Brand Reputation for SMEs has now been submitted to ICWSM. It covers four of the small business case studies from my project, exploring how the businesses are using social media tools to build trust and reputation among online communities. Now, I need to get back to working on my thesis… and figuring out how many hoops I need to jump through in order to get an international trip approved by the university. In July, Barbara and I should be presenting our paper in Barcelona 🙂
