FORMAT AND SUBMISSION:
SBP14 Conference Proceedings will be published in Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LCNS) by Springer. The papers must be in English and MUST be formatted according to the Springer-Verlag LNCS/LNAI guidelines. Sample LaTeX2e and WORD files are available at http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0.

Abstract and full text for both oral presentations and posters should be submitted electronically before the specified deadlines. The maximum length of papers is 8 pages.

For any questions and inquiries, please send to don@csee.wvu.edu, ccioffi@gmu.edu

PRE-CONFERENCE TUTORIAL SESSIONS:
Four half-day sessions will be offered: two concurrent sessions in the morning and two concurrent sessions in the afternoon on the day before the full conference. Sessions will be designed to meet the needs of one of two distinct groups. One group will consist of attendees who have backgrounds in computational science; computer science, engineering, and other mathematically oriented disciplines. Other tutorial sessions will be designed for behavioral and social scientists and others (e.g. those with medical backgrounds or training in public health) who may have limited formal education in the computational sciences. Attendees will gain an understanding of terminology, theories, and general approaches employed by computationally based fields, especially with respect to modeling approaches.

More details regarding the preconference tutorial sessions, including instructors, course content, and registration information will be posted to the conference website as soon as this information becomes available.

Note that the plans for the tutorial sessions are in progress and are subject to change.

SBP 14 CHALLENGE:
The SBP Challenge aims to demonstrate the real-world and interdisciplinary impact of social computing. The challenge will engage the social computing research community in solving a relevant, interesting, and challenging research problem that will advance the theory, methodology, and/or application of social computing.

KEYNOTES AND TUTORIALS:
The conference will feature keynotes and tutorials on several special topics.

Keynotes and tutorials delivered in the previous SBP meetings are available through the SBP website, http://sbp.asu.edu/

CROSS-FERTILIZATION ROUNDTABLES:
The SBP14 Cross-fertilization Roundtable session will be held in the afternoon of the first day of the technical portion of the conference. The purpose of the cross-fertilization roundtables is to help participants become better acquainted with people outside of their discipline and with whom they might consider partnering on a future SBP project.

BEST PAPER AWARDS:
SBP14 will feature a Best Paper Award and a Best Student Paper Award. All papers are qualified for the Best Paper Award. Papers where the senior author says the principal author is a student will be considered for the Best Student Paper Award.

HOTEL AND LOGISTICS:
Information on hotel and logistics will be provided at the conference website as it becomes available.

TRAVEL SCHOLARSHIPS:
It is anticipated that a limited number travel scholarships will be available on a competitive basis. Additional information will be provided on the SBP Conference website as it becomes available.
