Fifth International Workshop on Semantic Computing for Social Networks and Organization Sciences: from user information to social knowledge (SCSN 2017)
Internet users have become providers of information through social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, and so forth. On the other side organisations may benefit by integrating social network analysis, for instance, to understand employee innovative behaviour, as, for instance, integrating social networks and the leader member exchange perspectives. Still, networks models show how information sharing, models of social cohesion and mutual goals (i.e. values) make organization social capital. In this context Semantic Computing plays a chief role because of its potentiality to turn shapeless crowds information into social and digestible knowledge.
Furthermore, recent developments in processing, storing, and sharing huge amount of data become problematic due to the lack of new approaches, techniques, methods, algorithms and technologies oriented to social networks, including theoretical notions and insufficient awareness on security, retrieval, networking, behavioral and social issues.
The workshop, that will take place on Jan 30-Feb 1, 2017, in conjunction with the 11th IEEE International Conference on Semantic Computing (ICSC2017), (http://icsc.eecs.uci.edu/2017/) is a forum for researchers, industry practitioners and domain experts in the field of semantic computing, social networks, and social interactions and organisation sciences to exchange the latest advances in the state of the art and practice of semantic computing applications to the social network context.
Extended versions of selected papers will be published on the International Journal of Knowledge Society Research (http://www.igi-global.com/journal/international-journal-knowledge-society-research/1180)
