Welcome to ECSM 2017

The European Conference on Social Media was established 4 years ago. This event has previously been held in England, Portugal and France. The conference has attracted participants from more than 40 countries and been attended by a combination of academic scholars, public sector workers, practitioners and individuals who are engaged in various aspects of the social media industry. A number of journals are selecting papers from the conference for further development and publication.

We believe our country and MRU is a great place to organise this conference on the challenging topic of social technologies. Our university is ranked among the TOP3 educational institutions as having the fastest high speed Internet in the world so we can really take advantage of modern social media and Web 2.0 technology.
