Social Informatics | Doctoral Program - Information Engineering and Computer Science

Social Informatics

Social Informatics is an emerging area of informatics that studies how information systems can achieve social goals, apply social concepts, and become sources of information relevant for social sciences and for the analysis of social phenomena. It is at the intersection of social behavior and computational systems, and relates to the interdisciplinary study of the design, uses and consequences of information technologies that takes into account their interaction with institutional and cultural contexts.
