Social computing is a new paradigm of computing and technology development. New
applications/systems leveraging social computing are being developed to address problems in many different areas. These applications/systems gather abundance of social information that when mined and analyzed will further enrich their services or help researchers understand many different things including social dynamics of people, wisdom of crowd, social construction and sharing of knowledge, etc. Novel techniques for information analysis, reuse, and integration are critical to make sense of social information. Systematic approaches, design principles, and evaluation strategies need to be researched for developing effective social computing applications. Other challenges in social computing include accommodating privacy, security, and trust expectations of users. The aim of this workshop is to discuss and exchange ideas on the issues and challenges in social computing systems.
We invite papers from researchers and practitioners working in any aspect of social computing. Example topics, but not limited to, include:
• Reuse/integration of social information/social metadata
• Design, modeling, and simulation of social computing systems
• Enterprise social systems
• Social media and Government 2.0 (e-government)
• Mobile social software
• Social learning systems
• Social navigation systems
• Integration of structured/ unstructured/semi-structured social information
• Privacy, security, and trust issues in social computing systems
• Social information mining
• Social recommendation systems
• Social information management
• Information exchange across social systems
• Evaluation of social computing system
All contributions will be peer-reviewed by at least three experts. Papers should be 4-5 pages (English) in IEEE format, including bibliography and well-marked appendices. Accepted papers will be published as workshop papers in the IEEE IRI conference proceedings.
