Call For Papers

2nd Workshop on Aspects of the Human-Computer Interaction for the Social Web (WAIHCWS in its Portuguese acronym), which is part of the 9th Brazilian Symposium of Human Factors on Computer Systems (IHC’10). October 05th to 08th, 2010 - Belo Horizonte, Brazil.

The Social Web is part of the transformations that have redefined the way people use and are affected by technology. In recent years, we have seen the emergence of various technologies, such as social categorization (folksonomies), social networking, social navigation and search, collaborative publishing and sharing, among others. The success of these technologies heavily relies on their users and the information produced and organized by them, reflecting aspects related to the user experience and how the interface was designed. The second edition of WAIHCWS aims to promote further discussion on the opportunities and challenges that the Social Web brings to the research community in human-computer interaction and related areas, focusing on the concepts of sociability and human values.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Theories and mechanisms for encouraging participation and collaboration among users;
* Methods for designing and evaluating social software;
* Measurements and characteristics for the success of social software;
* Emotional and affective aspects of social software;
* Communication, collaboration, sharing, security, social norms and other aspects of sociability;
* Identity, privacy, trust, reputation and other human values in the social software;
* Usability and accessibility in the social software;
* Emergency and exploitation of social knowledge.


We invite works in all stages of development, describing practical approaches, empirical findings, proposals and research results that address aspects of the Social Web focusing on human-computer interaction. Positions and theoretically grounded discussions about the topics of interest are also welcome.

Papers should be preferably written in English (papers in Portuguese (BR) will also be accepted), they can be short (4-6 pages) or full papers (8-10 pages), in the ACM SIG-CHI format. Submissions must contain original contributions and include unpublished results. Selected articles will be published in the extended proceedings of IHC'10 and also electronically as CEUR-WS Publication.
Submission system:

Extended versions of the Workshop's best papers (fullpapers) will be invited for submission in the Journal of Theoretical and Applied Computing (Revista de Informática Teórica e Aplicada - RITA)
