Call For Papers

Social computing has increasingly become an important paradigm of computing and technology development. The novel idea behind this paradigm is to leverage social connections and social intelligence in computer systems and applications in order to devise solutions. These social computing applications/systems gather abundance of social information that when mined and analyzed will further enrich their services or help researchers understand many different things including social dynamics of people, wisdom of crowd, social construction and sharing of knowledge, etc. Novel techniques for information analysis, reuse, and integration are critical to make sense of social information. Systematic approaches, design principles, and evaluation strategies need to be researched for developing effective social computing applications. Other challenges in social computing include accommodating privacy, security, and trust expectations of users. The aim of this workshop is to discuss and exchange ideas on the issues and challenges in social computing systems. We invite research or position papers from researchers and practitioners working in any aspect of social computing. Example topics, but not limited to, include:

Design, modeling, and simulation of social computing systems
Reuse/integration of social information/social metadata
Integration of structured/ unstructured/semi-structured social information
Social information mining
Privacy, territoriality, security, and trust issues in social computing systems
Social Computing for business
Social media and Gov 2.0 (e-government)
Social health application
Mobile social software
Social learning systems
Location-based social systems
Social recommendation systems
Social information management
Evaluation of social computing system

All contributions will be peer-reviewed by at least three experts. Papers should be 4-6 pages (English) in IEEE format, including bibliography and well-marked appendices. Accepted papers will be published as workshop papers in the IEEE IRI conference proceedings.
