3rd Workshop on
Social and Algorithmic Issues In Business Support
Paradigms Derived from Words and Converted into Algorithms

Co-located event with 7th Language and Technology Conference
November 27-29, 2015, Poznan, Poland

Theme and Motivations:
Utilizing social wisdom begins with observation of human behaviour, analysis of artifacts, building paradigms on statistical models and converting them into algorithms. Social trend observed in XXI century networking and business activity has several roots. A base for rapid growth is accessible technology. But the force that drives people to active contribution is an everyday challenge to become recognizable and rich. Crowd creativity is a process of merging efforts and distributed resources in order to produce new quality and new products. Utilizing social energy and productivity gives beginning to new business paradigms, which converted into algorithms may be applied in various domains.

Among a variety of ways how people share their wisdom text resources – words – play an important role. Books, articles, reports, subtitles, comments, tables of data, e-mails, passwords and other textual feeds are easy to produce, easy to transfer, relatively easy to translate and very attractive to process and analyze. 3rd SAIBS is a place where we want to discuss methods of knowledge discovery in text, its visualization and commercialization.
An important contribution of social power is software developed and hosted by volunteers and distributed on word-of-mouth recommendation. During the workshop session we want to face social contribution to business processes taking into account possible benefits and risk factors. How far can business relay on social input? What are the limits or what are the areas where introducing crowd sourced parts may increase overall risk value to unacceptable level? What are social benefits gained by mining and aggregating knowledge derived from analysis social artifacts presented in text or other forms in global computer network.

Algorithmic trading (algo trading) practiced on stock markets and Forex trading platforms arises as a new challenge for algorithm designers. This field of knowledge and practice grown from human-eye analysis of text tables collecting series of prices is a good example how far computer algorithms can outperform humans in precision, speed and accuracy. During 3rd SAIBS we would like to face the phenomenon of social trading, compare models of passive income from trading systems based on algorithmic and social recommendation and discuss algo-trading boundaries. Should algorithmic trading become a part of computing science curricula? Finally we are also interested in research works which analyze crowd behaviour collected in text tables or visualized in form of charts.
Aims, scope and topics:

During 3rd SAIBS Workshop we want to focus on computational and optimization issues that can be supported by crowd input or social intelligence. A separate issue worth to analyze is visualization of data and paradigms collected in databases and large text files. We will try to answer the question how far and on which fields business may benefit from utilizing social contribution. And finally, we will discuss problems how computer systems may understand social behaviour (sometimes named: market) and support humans in making decisions, i.e. in automatic trading.

Topics of the workshop include but are not limited to:
• Translation issues and multi-language data feeds
• Recommender systems based on textual content and comments analysis
• Object comparison, building ranks
• Mining text artifacts to feed recommender systems
• Visualization of text and digital data
• Social and language issues in software specification, design and production
• New face of interactive social games based on text instructions and wordplay
• Software engineering issues
• Cultural and social issues in global software development
• Social sharing and exchange systems
• Crowd sourcing and crowd founding
• Automatic trading systems
• Optimization algorithms in trade support
• Experimental discovery of market behaviour
• Business models based on mobile applications
• Knowledge commercialization
• Business process improvement


All papers accepted for SAIBS 2015 will be published in the LTC proceedings (printed hard copy, with ISBN number +CD). A post-conference volume with extended versions of selected papers is planned. As this was the case for the previous three LTC conferences, we intend to publish them in the Springer series Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence.

Authors of the best SAIBS 2015 papers will be invited to submit extended versions of their works to three international scientific journals. In order to qualify for a journal, the paper must be presented at SAIBS 2015 by one of its authors. Publication of selected papers in the journal will be subject to the second round of reviews (to verify if the paper satisfies the journal requirements, including 30% of new content when compared that the version from the LTC proceedings).

Paper submission: format, templates and acceptance procedures are as for the general LTC. Anonymized versions of papers should be submitted using EasyChair exactly as for the general LTC, but copies should also be sent to Please also put "SAIBS'15 submission" as Subject of your mail and type "SAIBS" as a keyword (both in the EasyChair form and in the paper itself).
It is important to strictly observe the rule of not disclosing the authors' identity in the copy submitted for reviewing.

Important dates:
• October 22, 2015, Submission of papers
• October 28, 2015, Notification of acceptance
• October 31, 2015, Deadline for camera-ready papers
• November 27-29, 2015: LTC
• November 28, 2015: 3rd SAIBS Workshop at the 7th LTC

Workshop fees: 3rd SAIBS Workshop is an integral part of 7th Language and Technology Conference. Fees and payment procedures are the same as for LTC and cover participation in the general conference program. Single registration covers only one paper presentation. Please find details at:
