Call For Papers

The “Cloud” is a natural evolution of distributed computing and of the widespread adaption of virtualization and SOA. Social computing is a new cross-discipline that covers the science and technology needed to bridge the gap between Social networking services and IT services.

Social computing and networking is concerned with the intersection of social behaviour and computing systems, creating or recreating social conventions and contexts through the use of software and technology. Various social computing applications such as blogs, email, instant messaging, social networking (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+ etc.), wikis, and social bookmarking have been widely popularised by providing digital platforms for social interaction. Such applications have been profoundly change social behaviours and digital life styles of humankind whilst pushing the boundaries of Internet technologies. While people can enjoy or even indulge in the benefits such as freedom and convenience brought about by social computing, various critical issues such as trust, privacy, HCI design, and the modelling as well as understanding of social behaviours via computational means provide significant challenges.

In Cloud computing, IT-related capabilities and resources are provided as services, via the Internet and on-demand, accessible without requiring detailed knowledge of the underlying technology. The goal of social computing is to develop new computing technology and thereby enable more advanced IT social networking services to support business services more efficiently and effectively. The SCC 2016 is an important forum for researchers and industry practitioners to exchange information regarding advancements in the state of art and practice of IT-driven cloud computing technologies and social networking services, as well as to identify emerging research topics and define the future directions of cloud and Social Networking.

IEEE Morocco Section technically sponsors this conference. Accepted papers will be published in the proceeding and submitted to IEEE Xplore Library, Scopus and DBLP. Furthermore, Authors of high quality papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their work for potential publication in a special issue/section of an international journal.
