Call For Papers

Is social an opposition to algorithmic or systematic?

Social trend observed in networking and business activity has several roots. First it is a challenge for many of us to share our experience and productivity and become famous or noticed for at least fifteen minutes. Second - social or crowd creativity is a process of merging efforts and distributed resources in order to produce new quality and new products. Third - utilizing social energy and productivity may give beginning to new business paradigms. An important contribution of social power is software developed and hosted by volunteers and distributed on word-of-mouth recommendation. By the way... isn't nowadays word-of-mouth derived from mining textual and multimedia content delivered via the Internet?

During the conference session we want to face social contribution to business processes taking into account possible benefits and risk factors. How far can business relay on social input? What are the limits or what are the areas where introducing crowdsourced parts may increase overall risk value to unacceptable level?

Algorithmic trading (algo trading) practiced on stock markets and Forex trading platforms arises as a new challenge for algorithm designers. During 2nd SAIBS we would like to face the phenomenon of social trading, compare models of passive income from trading systems based on algorithmic and social recommendation and discuss algo trading boundaries. Is algorithmic trading a solution for tycoons or individual investors? Is back testing of investment strategies a reliable answer to risk problem? Should algorithmic trading become a part of computing science curricula?

During 2nd SAIBS we want to focus on computational and optimization issues that can be supported by crowd input or social intelligence. We will try to answer the question how far and on which fields business may benefit from utilizing social contribution. And finally, we will discuss problems how computer systems may understand social behaviour (sometimes named: market) and support humans in making decisions, i.e. in automatic trading.

Topics of the workshop include but are not limited to:
Business process optimization algorithms
Social issues in software design
Software engineering issues in business support
Social recommender systems
Social sharing and exchange systems
Crowdsourcing and crowdfounding
Automatic trading systems
Algorithmic trading
Optimization algorithms in trade support
Experimental discovery of market behaviour
Mining text documents
Business models based on mobile applications

All accepted papers, including position papers, will be published in the conference proceedings book and on CD-ROM support, under an ISBN reference. All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SciTePress Digital Library. SciTePress is member of CrossRef.
