What's in a dyad? Interaction and Exchange in Social Media
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Workshop website: http://dyad.di.unito.it
Conference website: http://socinfo2014.org/

Conference: SocInfo 2014 @ Barcelona, Spain in November 10-13, 2014
Submission deadline: September 8, 2014
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A great deal of work has used computational methods to investigate the
intensity, structure, topic and sentiment of social interactions. But neither
information alone nor structure in isolation can be considered fully
responsible for the complexity of social life, whether on- or offline. Online
interactions can be conceptualized as a social exchange, and also as a process
through which meaning emerges through dialogue between the two partners, i.e.
a dyad. We aim for the DYAD workshop to examine online interactions from a
number of rich perspectives.

Invited speakers include Cristian Danescu-Niculescu-Mizil (Max Planck Institute
SWS), Bruno Gonçalves (Aix-Marseille Université), and Carlos Diuk-Wasser
(Facebook, Inc.)

The workshop welcomes submissions on topics related to computational approaches
to the study of social interaction, relevant to fields as diverse as social
psychology, behavioral economics, sociolinguistics as well as computational
linguistics, web science, and network science. Examples of relevant submissions
include, but are not limited to, the following topics:

- detection of social expectations and norms
- status relations and power imbalances
- detection and measurement of social support, such as in critical situations related to illness, bullying or grieving
- self-disclosure, turn-taking, deference in interpersonal communication
- identity
- topic development and change in online conversations
- emotion dynamics in conversation thread
- social dynamics in comment thread (politics, news, interest-based communities)
- development of language and the self through social interaction
- language variation across communities and social relationships (e.g. distinguishing friends from colleagues, etc.)
- persuasive language
- pragmatics of language


Formatting

Submitted works can come as either full 10-page or short 4-page papers,
formatted according to Springer LNCS paper formatting guidelines
(http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0). Full papers will
be given 30 minutes and short 20 minutes for presentations. The authors can
choose to publish their papers along with the main conference proceedings, or
withhold such publication for future work considerations.
