SocialComp 2011 : Workshop on Collaborative Communities for Social Computing
Call For Papers
Workshop on Collaborative Communities for Social Computing
a workshop of the CollaborateCom 2011 conference
Orlando, Florida, USA, October 15-18, 2011
Social computing is an emergent field of computational sciences which harvests
the collective intelligence and social relationships of users to create value.
In contrast to the centralization and automation tendencies of many computing
approaches, social computing shifts the locus of intelligence from the computer
to the human user, from the server to the client and from the core to the edge
of the network.
Moreover, the widespread adoption of Web 2.0 related technologies has
facilitated user collaboration and knowledge sharing. Thanks to these
technologies, collaborative communities are today one of the emerging trends in
the ICT ( Information and Communication Technology) area. Collaborative tools
based on the Web 2.0 are today more and more used not only by single users, but
also at the enterprise level to communicate, share information, taking
decisions, and doing business. As such, the application of collaborative tools
for social computing is creating both interesting opportunities and challenges.
The workshop aims to bring together researchers in various disciplines to
explore the effect of social computing on different scenario. Our ultimate goal
is to foster communication and collaboration across disciplines to enable
interdisciplinary approaches for social computing.
For this workshop, we are requesting submissions on all topics relevant to
social computing, including but not restricted to:
* Social networks
* Collective intelligence
* Prediction markets
* Collaborative filtering and tagging
* Recommendation systems
* Online auction systems
* Negotiation models
* Reputation and trust in social computing
* Privacy and anonymity in social computing
* Incentive design, motivations
* Implementation approaches, architectures for social computing
* Scalability of social computing
* Mobile and location aware social computing
* Paper submission: July 22, 2011
* Author notification: August 19, 2011
* Camera ready: August 30, 2011
Research papers for Collaborative Communities for Social Computing should be up
to 8 pages in IEEE 2-column format. Please follow the instructions provided in
CollaborateCom submission page at http://www.collaboratecom.org/2011/.
Submission of papers is through the EasyChair conference system. Authors
need to have an account in the system or obtain one prior to submission.
