Call For Papers

Conference Theme: Social Computing for the Multiverse

Social Computing for the Multiverse invites reimagining the scholarship in computational social science to do with the building, using, and studying of systems that facilitate communities across multiple modalities, with different and exciting affordances for inter-personal and inter-group interactions. The call offers a chance to reflect on the benefits of "living" in a multiverse, networked society, and regard both the real and perceived benefits of these interactive modalities on social, civic, and political life.

We believe this theme is especially pertinent given the increasing importance of online social networks in the years of a pandemic, which necessitated a physically remote workplace, while online social networks further evolved to become online schools and workplaces. While much of recent research has focused on online isolation, polarization, and echo chambers, we identify a scholarly need to reflect on the implications which multimodal communication may have on the health and quality of real and imagined online communities. Furthermore, we have an eye on the rising feasibility of virtual and augmented, multimodal social networks that are extending to applications beyond gameplay, and are likely to offer social, networked, and immersive environments that allow embodied interaction, communication, and collaboration.

We therefore invite research, reflection, and critique of the “Social Computing for the Multiverse” theme, as well as questions addressing (but not limited to) the following topics of interest.

Topics of Interest

Research topics of interest include but are not limited to:

New theories, methods, and objectives in computational social science
Computational models of social phenomena, including behaviour modelling
Dynamics of social collaborative systems
Web mining and its social interpretations
Quantifying offline phenomena through online data
Rich representations of social ties
Security, privacy, trust, reputation, and incentive issues
Opinion mining and social media analytics
Credibility of online content
Health informatics
Social media and health behaviours
Forecasting of social phenomena
Socio-economic systems and applications
Collective intelligence and social cognition

Social network analysis and mining
Science and technology studies approaches to computational social science
Mining big social data
Social influence and social contagions
Algorithms and protocols inspired by human societies
Equity in social and information systems
Social choice mechanisms in the e-society
Social applications of the semantic Web
Social psychology and personality
Virtual communities (e.g., open-source, multiplayer gaming, etc.)
Impact of technology on socio-economic, security, defence aspects
Urban informatics
Ethics of computational research on human behaviour
Digital and Computational Demography

Submission, Paper Formatting, Length, Double-blind Reviewing, and Anonymization

Important Dates

Submission deadline: 20 June 2022
Notification of acceptance: 1 August 2022
Camera-ready: 14 August 2022

Make your submission at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=socinfo22

Original manuscripts should be submitted in English in pdf format through Easychair. All the deadlines are at 23:59:59 Anywhere on Earth Time.

We solicit submission of three types of contribution:

Full papers: should not exceed 12 pages (excluding references and any appendix), to be presented orally
Short papers: should not exceed 6 pages (excluding references and any appendix), to be presented orally
Abstracts: should be 1 page (excluding references), to be presented as posters

Submissions will be reviewed through a double-blind review process (names of the authors invisible). To ensure a thorough and fair review process, this year’s conference will rely on a two-tier review process and we will enforce strict review guidelines to provide even higher-quality feedback to authors. To further incentivize useful and detailed feedback to authors, contributions of best reviewers will be rewarded with special mentions.

Because SocInfo will publish proceedings, manuscripts should be formatted according to Springer LNCS paper formatting guidelines. Authors should consult Springer’s authors’ guidelines and use their proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for Word, for the preparation of their papers. Please ensure that you have anonymized the pdf file for your submission by removing all author names and affiliations and any other information in the manuscript which can be used to identify the author(s).
Proceedings, and Special Issues

As in previous years, accepted papers will appear in Springer's Lecture Note Series in Computer Science. We will also allow accepted papers to be presented without publication in the conference proceedings if the authors choose to do so. Some of the full paper submissions may be accepted as short papers after review by the Program Committee. A small set of particularly high quality and important papers will be selected for journal publication.

Conflict of interest

Some program committee members may have a potential conflict of interest that can prevent them from evaluating you fairly (e.g. they are your colleagues or colleagues of your co-authors). Please declare any conflict of interest and provide a brief explanation.

Please check the list of our program committee members and mark any conflicts of interest using the instructions provided below.

If you are making a new submission after the submission is made you will be asked to mark conflicts of interest.

For existing submissions, you should access the submission and click on "Declare Conflicts".
