The ADSA History Project is building a database of presentations at past ADSA conferences. Information is updated here as the project proceeds with lists of presentations at each conference – including presenter, institution, title, format, abstract (where available in electronic copy) and keywords. These lists are currently in pdf format on the conference pages. Contact Jonathan Bollen (jonathan.bollen@flinders.edu.au) or Gaye Poole (gpoole@waikato.ac.nz) if you’d like to contribute information on past ADSA conferences.
