ABOUT THE WORKSHOP:
We plan this workshop as an interactive event focused around the scholarship of trust. This is an opportunity for scholars to fine-tune position papers and works-in-progress as they are informed via the workshop discussions and activities, and brainstorm about methodological approaches to studying trust in the context of government and corporate use of big data, emerging technologies, and globalized infrastructures. Participants who do not present a work-in-progress or position paper, but are in attendance as a general workshop participant, will have the opportunity to further develop ideas and interests that are related to information policy, ethics, and trust.
