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
