Social and economic computing focuses on the development of computing technologies that consider social and economic contexts. Social computing can be broadly defined as the computational facilitation of social studies and human social dynamics as well as the design and use of computing technologies that consider social context. Economic computing is concerned with the development of computational theories, models, and tools that facilitate economic studies and the design, development, and evaluation of economic systems using computational ideas and techniques. To facilitate the design of social and economic systems, social and economic computing must learn from disciplines such as sociology and economics, and integrate psychological, organizational, and communication theories into computational thinking.

Services computing, and social and economic computing, are closely related and benefit from each other. Social computing techniques enable and support communication and collaboration between service providers and consumers. Social and economic computing applications are typically built upon and delivered through services computing principles and techniques. This special issue seeks innovative contributions to social and economic computing research and development in the context of services computing science, engineering, and applications. Multidisciplinary research with substantive findings at the intersection of social and economic computing and services computing is strongly encouraged.

This special issue is expected to cover representative research findings to provide an integrated and synthesized view of the current state of the art, identify key challenges and opportunities for future studies, and promote community-building among researchers and practitioners in the related fields.

Areas of interest include but are not limited to the following topics:

Service-based theories of social and economic computing
Service-oriented design and architectures of computational social and economic systems
Computational social and economic modeling, agent-based computational economics in services
Social media analytics, social learning, social network analysis and mining in social and economic contexts, web-enabled service-oriented social and economic computing
Cultural dynamics, influence process, trust, privacy, and security-related services computing in social and economic contexts
Services, methodology, infrastructure, management, and experimental studies in social and economic computing related applications
Emerging services computing applications with social and economic computing in areas such as e-business, national security, risk analysis, and public policy evaluation.
