Call For Papers

** Summary **

Online communities have become a part of many aspects of our everyday life. For many people they form an essential channel for communicating with their friends and private social network. Business oriented communities create a rich eco-sphere of information and interaction with employees and customers for industries. Frequently, new community platforms are launched on the public web, for dedicated interest groups or in company intranets. The number of members in these communities quickly grows to thousands or even millions of users. The complex nature of such online communities, their structure, the generated content as well as their social value motivate a demand to manage these communities and to take care of their prosperity. This demand calls for tools to analyse, understand and actively manage online communities. In the context of larger communities even the role of a community manager is called for.

In this workshop we intend to bring together researchers and practitioners to discuss concrete scenarios and needs of community owners and administrators on the one hand and solutions and tools for the analysis and management of communities developed and proposed by researchers on the other hand. To this end the workshop is composed of invited talks from industries to demonstrate their settings and challenges as well as technical program with scientific papers. In an additional setting of break-out sessions we will bring together the two worlds to allow for networking and cross fertilization effects.

** Topics of Interest **

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Data mining and analytics of online community data (structures, content and interactions)
* Forecasting and simulation of the development of an online community
* Policy making processes for online communities
* Success metrics for online communities
* Management tools for online communities

** Submissions **

For the MAMA workshop we seek full technical research papers presenting novel work. Submitted papers should describe original work and present significant results. We encourage authors to provide references to their public data sets and other material used in their evaluation as well as links to live demo systems or the source code of their tools.

Paper submissions must be formatted in the style of the Lecture Notes in Informatics (LNI) and must not exceed 12 pages. Submissions which do not comply with the LNI formatting or which exceed the page limit will be rejected without review.

Submissions will be peer reviewed by at least three independent reviewers. The review process will be double-blind, so please anonymize your submission. Accepted papers have to be presented at the workshop. At least one author must register for the INFORMATIK 2013 conference by June 30.

Submissions will be managed by the INFORMATIK 2013 submission system:
