Call For Papers

The International Conference on Social Informatics (SocInfo) is an interdisciplinary venue for researchers from informatics and the social & management sciences to come together to share ideas and opinions, and present original research work. The goal is to create an opportunity for the dissemination of knowledge between the two communities, as well as to enable mutual critical discussion of current research.

The conference solicits original research and experience based case study papers, as well as proposals for demonstrations. It welcomes interdisciplinary papers on methods from the social sciences in the study of information systems, applying information technology in the study of social phenomena, or applying social concepts in the design of information systems.

The analysis, modeling and simulation of complex social phenomena, including Web2.0 applications, using well-established models such as social networks, is of particular interest to SocInfo2011. Enhancement of established social models may lead to breakthroughs in the design of algorithms or information systems that rely on social participation and social mechanisms. Behavioral game theory and realistic social simulation may be the road to the development of new social models for social information systems.

Web mining, text mining, natural language processing, opinion mining and sentiment analysis are the domains that attempt to exploit information available in the World Wide Web for a better understanding of social phenomena. Such research can benefit from the state-of-the-art knowledge in the social sciences, and is therefore solicited for SocInfo.

Applications of social concepts in concrete information systems such as web enterprises, enterprise management, e-governance and service sector, virtual environments such as multiplayer online games, multi-agent systems, e-commerce (including trust management and reputation systems) environments for support of teamwork, argumentation and debate, or creative work, will be of interest. The extensions of established knowledge in recommendation systems, collaborative applications (including collaborative filtering and tagging), distributed AI or multi-agent systems for the purpose of incorporating social mechanisms are also of interest to the conference.

Finally, the implications of such influence of technology on our society at large, including its security implications on individual’s privacy and identity, as well as on cyber infrastructure and homeland security are of interest to the conference.

Detailed research topics of interest for this conference include, but are not limited to:

Computational models of social phenomena and social simulation
Social networks: discovery, evolution, analysis and applications
Web mining and its social interpretations
Security, privacy, trust, reputation and incentive issues
Design and analysis of Web2.0 applications (social or collaborative Web applications)
Algorithms and protocols inspired by human societies
Mechanisms for providing fairness in information systems
Social choice mechanisms in the e-society
Recommendation systems and social applications of the semantic Web
Virtual communities (e.g., open-source, multiplayer gaming, etc.)
Impact of technology on socio-economic, security, defense aspects
Visualization of dynamic social networks
