Call For Papers

We are pleased to announce the Call for Papers for the 2024 International Conference on Social Media & Society (#SMSociety)! For 2024, #SMSociety will return as an in-person event. It will take place in London, UK from July 16th to 18th. It is co-organized by the Social Media Lab at Toronto Metropolitan University and the Digital Cultures and Economies Research Hub at the University of the Arts London. The conference’s three-day program will feature panels and paper presentations, tutorials, networking events and a poster session.

In keeping with the conference’s inter- and transdisciplinary focus, we welcome both quantitative and qualitative scholarly and original submissions that crosses disciplinary boundaries and expands our understanding of current and future trends in social media research across many fields including (but not limited to): Communication, Computer Science, Critical Data Studies, Education, Journalism, Information Science, Law, Management, Political Science, Psychology, Public Policy, Public Administration, Science and Technology, and Sociology.


#SMSociety is a biennial gathering of leading social media researchers from around the world. It is the premier venue for sharing and discovering new peer-reviewed interdisciplinary research on how social media affects society. #SMSociety provides participants with opportunities to exchange ideas, present original research, learn about recent and ongoing studies, and network with peers.

Authors of accepted papers will have an opportunity to provide a link to their pre-print and/or dataset for inclusion in the conference program.
