Call For Papers


The World Wide Web Journal (WWWJ), Springer welcomes submissions to the special
issue on "Computational Social Science as the Ultimate Web Intelligence".

Computational Social Science (CSS) is the use of Web Intelligence and the tools
and technology capable of monitoring, analyzing, diagnosing, and resolving
day-to-day problems of society. CSS is the development of intelligent systems
and solutions to address the critical problems of the society such as poverty
and hunger, slavery and torture, disease and suffering, and create tools that
enable an illiterate person to be as productive as a PhD. Computer Science and
Artificial Intelligence must embrace CSS as the next frontier in Web Intelligence
and Web Intelligence and WIC need to be at the forefront of inventing that future.
Such an understanding is proposed and enforced by Professor Dabbala Rajagopal
“Raj” Reddy, who has served on the faculty of Stanford and Carnegie Mellon for
over 40 years and received the ACM Turing Award, the highest award in Computer
Science, in 1994. He is also praised as a pioneer for “the design and construction
of large scaled artificial intelligence systems, demonstrating the practical
importance and potential commercial impact of artificial intelligence technology.”
In a keynote speech delivered at
the IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Web
Intelligence in Leipzig, Germany on August 24, 2017, Professor Reddy pointed out
that “Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence must embrace CSS [Computational
Social Science] as the next frontier in Web intelligence.” His vision on Artificial
Intelligence and Web Intelligence for creating a truly humane society is both
thought-provoking and instrumental to bringing about new revolutions in the two
related fields.

In a recent interview with Professor Reddy on March 17, 2018, he once again reinforced
the vision on new revolutions in the two fields with a focus on Computational Social
Science. He raised up a number of interesting questions as an inspiration to the WWW
and AI related research communities:

* What is your vision of the future of AI?
* How could we further advance the field of computational social sciences via the
route of Web Intelligence?
* What could be the future impact of Web Intelligence?
* How to incorporate Personal Guardian Angels to future Web Intelligence?

The Special Issue is an effort and a step taken forward to explore the answers to
these important and inspiring questions. The Special Issue will discuss theories
and methodologies from both disciplines of Artificial Intelligence
and Web Intelligence
with a focus on Computational Social Science. The discussions will encompass the
theoretical basis and related tools to formally represent, measure, model, and mine
meaningful patterns from large-scale online datasets related to AI, WWW, and
Computational Social Science.

Topics of interests include, but not limited to:
* Vision of the future of AI
* Advancing Computational social sciences via Web Intelligence
* Incorporate Personal Guardian Angels to future Web Intelligence
* Future impact of Web intelligence to World Wide Web
* Social behaviour modelling, understanding, and patterns mining;
* Social computing practice and theory;
* Computational social science and applications;
* Social analytics and societal behaviour for prediction;
* Social computing, social media and social networks;
* Social influence modelling and analysis;
* Large-scale social data mining methods, techniques and algorithms.
