The event will run from 17.00 to 19.00, featuring presentations from researchers who have used social media for research in a range of settings including government and academia, followed by a panel discussion.
Unfortunately, the event is fully booked, but if you'd like to follow along, the event will be streamed live on Periscope through the @NatCen Twitter account. We're also looking to take questions from the Twitter audience for the panel discussion. If you can't make it, we'll make links to the broadcast available.
Confirmed speakers are:
Joseph Rice, Twitter: What's possible when you know what the whole world is thinking about any topic at any time?
Josh Smith, DEMOS: Listening to the Digital Commons.
Callum Staff, Department for Education: #vom: Predicting Norovirus using Twitter
Rob Procter, University of Warwick: Thinking practically about social data science.
