Non Exclusive Ways for Participating in IIIS Virtual Community
Content related to IIIS publications (conference proceedings, journals, videos, etc.) will be accessible, in the future, just for the members of the IIIS Virtual Community.
IIIS Virtual Community will have access with potential interaction and virtual dialogs, in most cases, to the following initial contents and activities (more content and activities will be added in the near future):
- Virtual sessions, associated to the face-to-face sessions of the last conference organized by IIIS. Currently, just registered participants can participate in these virtual sessions, which are basically based on 1) electronic forums for each of the presented papers at the respective conference and 2) the possibility of evaluating the paper, in a Peer-to-Peer Participative Reviewing (PPPR) for those who presented a paper in the same session session (post-publication feedback and review for the possibility of improving these papers and initiating an interactive co-learning process between authors and interested readers)
- Peer-to-Peer Participative Reviewing (PPPR) of the papers submitted to IIIS conferences and Journals Journals (pre-publication reviewing). Initially, this kind of reviewing will be done via blogs and, consequently, no quantitative evaluations will be made according the same set of criteria. In a second phase, PPPR via blogs might be supplemented by an access to the evaluative form being currently used by the submissions’ assigned reviewers.
- Videos of the main sessions (tutorials, workshop, plenary meetings, featured sessions, etc.) of past conferences organized by the IIIS. These videos are currently being uploaded at http://www.YouTube.com/IIISChannel. In the future, just the members of IIIS’ Virtual Community 1) may have access to some of these videos, and 2) can comment the published videos.
- The IIIS Virtual Community can propose 1) to include their own videos in the IIIS’ YouTube Channel, and/or 2) to embed it in the IIIS Web site, and/or 3) to announce it among the featured videos in the IIIS Web site. Featured videos will go through a reviewing and selection process.
- Members of the IIIS Virtual Community (IIIS-VC) can participate in IIIS’
blogs and, consequently, are eligible as:
- Subscribers to IIIS’ blogs and, consequently, to comment on blog posts. Subscribers, who are not members of the IIIS-VC, but are accepted as subscribers to an IIIS blog, will be included as members the IIIS-VC.
- Contributors with new posts submitting them for a review. The contributor’s primary purpose is to submit content for consideration. Contributors, who are not members of the IIIS-VC, but are accepted as contributors of an IIIS blog, will be included as members the IIIS-VC.
- Authors of new posts. Authors can write, edit, publish, and delete posts that they wrote, in a given IIIS blog, but they cannot alter anyone else’s post. Author’s main purpose is to manage his or her own content. Authors, who are not members of the IIIS-VC, but are accepted as authors of an IIIS blog, will be included as members the IIIS-VC.
- Editors of an IIIS blog, as implied by the role, can write, edit, publish, and delete posts and pages, as well as moderate comments and manage categories, tags, and blogroll. Editors cannot change the theme, plugins, users, etc. The editor’s main purpose is to manage all of the content of a given blog. Editors, who are not members of the IIIS-VC, but are accepted as editors of an IIIS blog, will be included as members the IIIS-VC.
- Members of the IIIS-VC may propose the creation of a new IIIS Blog and suggest names as contributors, authors, and/or editors.
- To propose informing, via IIIS’ social media (Twitter, Facebook, links in IIIS' Web sites, etc.), about events or content that might be important or useful to the IIIS-VC.
- To propose adding more activities to this list.
Initial Members of the IIIS-VC are the members of the IIIS, IIIS’ Reviewers, Program Committees Members of conferences organized by IIIS, and authors and co-authors of papers published by IIIS in conferences proceedings and journals.
