    As it’s a half-day event, what I would like is to start with each person doing some kind of structured “flash talk” about their paper, ongoing and planned research, and collaboration interests. There may not be time to interact with each person to any extent, so this could help identify who we want to connect with.

    Dear all,
    What I can offer as part of the program is a talk about the dark site of social media. We have done some research about social media as a communication media and have beside positive effects focused on negative ones such as stress. If you are interested I can talk about our results and intended future projects.
