The society and technology interest group (soctech) is an informal interest group that we are starting up among UW-CSE students to promote awareness of various social computing issues, in both CSE and the UW. We plan to collaborate with other departments, with possible aims including the production of cross-departmental courses, lecture series, or white papers.

We have a mailing list, soctech@cs. Here's the public list info page.


  • soctech seminar: Weekly seminar/reading group held in CSE; open to all students
The seminar is our primary current activity; see the individual quarter pages for more details.

We have also, at various times in the past and with varying levels of success, tried other things.

People and organizations


Current UW-CSE coordinator: Travis Kriplean

Current UW law coordinator: Jim Sfekas

We're in informal contact with most of these, or have been in the past. The extent to which we actually work with them varies widely.
