Welcome to ECSM 2018
The European Conference on Social Media was established 5 years ago. This event has previously been held in England, Portugal, France and Lithuania. 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.
At ECSM 2018 we will be hosting the final round of the 2nd Social Media in Practice Excellence Awards. We are looking forward to an interesting competition in Limerick.
