FoSW 2011 : The Future of the Social Web
Call For Papers
CALL FOR PAPERS - The Future of the Social Web (FoSW'11)
In conjunction with the Intl. Conf. on Weblogs and Social Media (ICWSM 2011)
July 21, 2011 -- Barcelona; Catalunya (Spain)
The aim of this workshop is to encourage discussion and sharing of ideas and
highly innovative research results that focus on the future of the social web.
We aim to promote interdisciplinary research and exchange of ideas in this
area, between industry and academia, in different fields (e.g., computer
science, mathematics, physics, psychology, sociology, cultural anthropology, etc.).
In particular, we would like to discuss what the future of the web might
be in light of the recent wave of social media technologies and services: there
is little doubt that the web is being fundamentally transformed by social
media, both in terms of how content is created and shared, and also in terms of
how business and society are embracing social media.
We solicit the following types of submissions:
* Highly-innovative research contributions describing innovative results;
e.g. new perspectives on social media mining, novel interaction paradigms,
empirical studies showing emerging trends, metrics, etc.
* Position papers discussing the future of the social web; e.g. future
developments that might be extrapolated from current evidence; scenarios
potentially having a strong positive or negative impact on users and society at
large; impact of new social media mechanisms on the future of search, e-mail,
and other "traditional" services; future research directions and areas of
opportunity for innovation.
Contributions are limited to 10 pages in ACM-SIG format, and should be submited
through EasyChair: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=fosw2011.
