I’m going to Ume in Northern Sweden for a couple of days in August to do one of the keynotes at a workshop for PhD students organised by HUMlab. The topic is Interaction In Digital Environments. I visited HUMlab a few years ago, and really enjoyed the people there, and the feel of the lab – though it was a bit dark and cold, I have to admit. This time I’ve been promised northern summer light, and I get to finally meet Stephanie Hendrick, who does really interesting work on blogs, like her work with Lilia Efimova on weblog conversations and communities.

The workshop, btw, is a good deal – interesting people, an interesting place, and while participation is limited, those accepted will have their travel and accomodation paid for. You might want to check it out.
