CREATe investigators Lilian Edwards of Strathclyde University and Derek Mcauley of Nottingham University presented a paper on Real Name Policies and Social Media at a special workshop on the interface between Web Science and Internet Science at the Web Science Conference in Paris on the 1st of May. Co-located with CHI and Hypertext, this was one of the biggest gatherings of those involved in interdisciplinary work around the Web in years, with c. 4,000 people in attendance. The paper combined law and computing science and presented preliminary work on CREATe’s Open Platform Work Package being led by Nottingham/Horizon. A longer version of the paper authored by Edwards alone will form part of a special festschrift being published in May 2013 in honour of IT law pioneer, Jon Bing, at the Norwegian Research Centre for Computing and Law (NRCCL) in Oslo.
