Call For Papers


Beyond a platform for casual social interaction and for marketing research and broadcasting, social networks are also rapidly becoming a powerful tool for collaboration, innovation, coordination and problem solving. Social networks are now used to report crimes to law enforcement agencies, monitor health epidemics, issue community warnings and, lately, also to connect devices in a social network-based Internet of Things. We refer to the augmented use of social networks for collaboration between people, as well as between machines, as the Social Collaborative Internet.

This international workshop on Social Collaborative Internet (SCI-2015) focuses on the crossroads between scientists, researchers, industry practitioners and students from diverse domains in social networking, communications and the Internet of Things. Its purpose is to attract novel contributions on the analysis, design, modeling, implementation and evaluation of technologies that can support the Social Collaborative Internet. The workshop will focus on the following (not limited) issues:
· How to effectively utilize and evaluate social network and media data for public safety and emergency response?
· Visualization and analytics techniques for social network and collaboration data.
· How will the introduction of machine-to-machine communication in social networking affect security and privacy?
· Performance, effectiveness and efficiency of collaboration through social networks.
· Applications of social networks for supporting personalized information and improvement of quality of life (i.e. e-health, e-gov).
· Extension of the social network concept, to include non-human participation (i.e. socially inspired paradigm for machine to machine communication).
· Prototyping and standardization of interaction over social networks, (i.e. use of terminology, mapping to standards).
· Convergence of Internet of things and Social networks towards a Social Internet of Things.


Researchers are encouraged to submit original research contributions in all major areas, including, but not limited to:
- Social network collaboration paradigms
- Social network use by Law Enforcement Agencies
- Social networks in the Health sector
- Volunteerism in social media
- Social network analysis and mining
- Computational social networks
- Security and privacy in social networks
- Trust management in social networks
- Next generation of social networks
- Social Internet of things / Social network of intelligent objects
- Machine to machine social networking
