Call For Papers

The International Conference on Social Informatics (SocInfo) is an interdisciplinary venue that brings together researchers from the computational and social sciences to help fill the gap between the two communities. The goal of the conference is to provide a forum to help practitioners from the two disciplines define common research objectives and explore methodologies. The venue welcomes contributions on methods from the social sciences applied to the study of socio-technical systems, but also the application of computational methods 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 workshops and keynote talks that will be tailored to enhance the collaboration between the two research cultures in an era when social interactions are ubiquitous and span offline, online and augmented reality worlds. More information about the conference are at
Research topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
• New theories, methods and objectives in computational social science
• Computational models of social phenomena, including behavior modeling
• Dynamics of social collaborative systems
• Social network analysis and mining
• Mining big social data
• Social influence and social contagions
• 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
• Equity in social and information systems
• Social choice mechanisms in the e-society
• Social applications of the semantic Web
• Social psychology and personality
• Virtual communities (e.g., open-source, multiplayer gaming, etc.)
• Impact of technology on socio-economic, security, defense aspects
• Urban informatics
• Forecasting of social phenomena
• 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). They should be formatted according to Springer LNCS paper formatting guidelines ( Two types of contribution are accepted:
• Full papers: should not exceed 14 pages (excluding references and any appendix).
• Short papers: should not exceed 8 pages (excluding references and any appendix).
Submissions are single-blind (names of the authors visible). 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 incentivize useful and detailed feedback to authors, contributions of best reviewers will be rewarded with special mentions.
