Call For Papers

The International Conference on Social Informatics (SocInfo) is an
interdisciplinary venue that brings together researchers from informatics
and social sciences to help fill the gap between the two communities. The
goal of the conference is to contribute to the definition and exploration
of common methodologies and research goals that encompass the objectives
and motivate the two disciplines. The venue welcomes contributions on
methods from the social sciences applied to the study of
socio-technological systems but also about the application of information
technology to the study of complex social processes, and the use of social
concepts in the design of information systems.

The conference creates an opportunity for the dissemination of knowledge
between the two communities by soliciting presentations of original
research papers and experience-based case studies in computer science,
sociology, psychology, political science, anthropology, economics,
linguistics, artificial intelligence, social network analysis, and other
disciplines that can shed light on the open questions in the growing field
of computational social science.

The event will also offer tutorials, workshops and keynote talks that will
be tailored to address the collaboration between the two research cultures
in an era when social interactions are ubiquitous and span offline, online
and augmented reality worlds.

Research topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* New theories, methods and objectives in computational social science
* Computational models of social phenomena and social simulation
* Social behavior modeling
* Social communities: discovery, evolution, analysis, and applications
* Dynamics of social collaborative systems
* Social network analysis and mining
* Mining social big data
* Social Influence and social contagion
* 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
* Algorithms and protocols inspired by human societies
* Mechanisms for providing fairness in information systems
* Social choice mechanisms in the e-society
* Social applications of the semantic Web
* Social system design and architectures
* Virtual communities (e.g., open-source, multiplayer gaming, etc.)
* Impact of technology on socio-economic, security, defense aspects
* Real-time analysis or visualization of social phenomena and social graphs
* Socio-economic systems and applications
* Collective intelligence and social cognition

Original manuscripts should be submitted in English in pdf format to the
EasyChair submission system:
Manuscripts should be formatted according to Springer LNCS paper
formatting guidelines:
The length of the full papers should not exceed 14 pages
(excluding references).

As in the previous years, the accepted papers will appear in Springer's
Lecture Note Series in Computer Science but we 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 can be accepted as short papers based on the decision of the
Program Committee. Best papers will be selected and invited for extended
journal publications.

To ensure a thorough and fair review process, this year's conference will
rely on a two-tier review process and will enforce strict review guidelines
to provide even higher-quality feedback to authors. To further incentivate
good feedback to authors, contributions of best reviewers will be awarded
with special mentions.
