The NLab Social Networks Conference was organised by NLab at De Montfort University, Leicester. NLab was developed in the Faculty of Humanities by Professor Sue Thomas to connect creative businesses with writers and generate pioneering partnerships.
In 2006 NLab ran a series of professional workshops and seminars on blogs, wikis, games and new media writing.
In 2007 NLab was proud to present the first-ever European conference for and about women who read and write blogs.
In 2009 we continue CreativeCoffee Club and a focus on research and case studies. Look out for the next NLab event in June 2009.
