SocMedVis 2012 : Workshop on Social Media Visualization
Call For Papers
Workshop on Social Media Visualization (SocMedVis) at the International AAAI Conference on Weblogs and Social Media (ICWSM'12)
Social media study and analysis brings researchers from many fields into a single setting. Even though the tasks of these researchers are varied, data visualization and analytics plays an important role. For industry and academics alike, visualization of social media data helps with hypothesis formation and supports the explanation of phenomena.
The Workshop on Social Media Visualization (SocMedVis) will be held in conjunction with the International AAAI Conference on Weblogs and Social Media (ICWSM'12) in Dublin on 4th June 2012. The workshop is a venue for presentation of research and applications of visualization of social media data.
The goal of the workshop is to bring together researchers and industry practitioners interested in visual and interactive techniques for social media analysis to discuss their potential application to the social sciences, humanities, and industry. We solicit contributions that discuss novel techniques and applications of visualization and visual analytics approaches to social media data sources.
Paper Submission Deadline: 2nd March 2012
Notification: 16th March 2012
Paper Camera-Ready Deadline: 2nd April 2012
Early registration for ICWSM'12: 6th April 2012

A subset of the accepted papers will be invited for oral presentation at the workshop and will appear in the ICWSM'12 workshop proceedings. All other accepted papers will be presented as posters during the poster session or interactive demo session.
The program will also include a madness session at the beginning of the workshop to allow anyone attending the workshop to briefly introduce themselves, their work, and state their positions and goals related to the scope of the workshop. If you are planning to attend the workshop you are welcome to send an email to conference organizers to ensure a slot in the madness session by 2nd April 2012.
We also plan to host a panel of researchers in social sciences and humanities and industrial researchers of varied perspectives on the application of visualization to academic disciplines and industry where visualization is needed to understand social media data.
