Call For Papers

The 2nd International Conference on Social Computing and Its Applications (SCA2012) Nov.1~3, 2012, Xiangtan, China, (

Social computing is at the intersection of social behaviour and computing systems, creating or recreating social conventions, and social contexts, through the use of software and technology. Various social computing applications such as blogs, email, instant messaging, social networking (e.g., Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.), wikis, and social bookmarking have been widely popularised where people interact socially via the computing space. Such applications have profoundly impacted social behaviour and lifestyle while also pushing the boundary of computing technology. While people can enjoy or even indulge in the benefits such as freedom and convenience brought offered by social computing, various critical issues such as privacy protection, touch-screen based arty HCI design, and modelling of social behaviour in computing space still remain challenging.

SCA (Social Computing and its Applications) is created to provide a prime international forum for both researchers, industry practitioners and environment experts to exchange the latest fundamental advances in the state of the art and practice of Social Computing and broadly related areas.

Topics that will be considered for this special issue include, but are not limited to, the following:
* Fundamentals of social computing
* Modelling of social behaviour
* Social network analysis and mining
* Computational models of social simulation
* Web 2.0 and semantic web
* Innovative HCI and touch-screen models
* Modelling of social conventions and social contexts
* Social cognition and social intelligence
* Social media analytics and intelligence
* Group formation and evolution
* Security, privacy, trust, risk and cryptography in social contexts
* Social system design and architectures
* Information retrieval, data mining, artificial intelligence and agent-based technology
* Group interaction, collaboration, representation and profiling
* Handheld/mobile social computing
* Service science and service oriented interaction design
* Cultural patterns and representation
* Emotional intelligence, opinion representation, influence process
* Mobile commerce, handheld commerce and e-markets
* Connected e-health in social networks
* Social policy and government management
* Social blog, micro-blog, public blog, internet forum
* Business social software systems
* Impact on peoples activities in complex and dynamic environments
* Collaborative filtering, mining and prediction
* Social computing applications and case studies

Accepted and presented papers will be included into the IEEE Conference Proceedings published by IEEE CS Press. Authors of accepted papers, or at least one of them, are requested to register and present their work at the conference, otherwise their papers may be removed from the digital libraries of IEEE CS and EI after the conference. Selected papers will be published in international SCI-indexed high quality journals: World Wide Web Journal; The Computer Journal; or Journal of Systems and Software.
