Call For Papers

Call for Papers: Social Informatics 2019

The International Conference on Social Informatics (SocInfo19) 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 organizers welcome a broad range of contributions, from those that apply methods from the social sciences to the study of socio-technical systems, to the application of computational methods to the study of complex social processes and the use of social concepts in the design of information systems.

SocInfo19 offers 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.

SocInfo19 will also offer keynote talks and invited 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.

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
Health informatics
Social media and health behaviors
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
Ethics of computational research on human behavior
Science and technology studies approaches to computational social science
Digital and Computational Demography

Information about Submission

We solicit submission of three types of contribution:

Full papers: should not exceed 12 pages (excluding references and any appendix), to be presented orally;
Short papers: should not exceed 6 pages (excluding references and any appendix), to be presented orally;
Abstracts: should be 1 page (excluding references), to be presented as posters;

Submissions will be reviewed through a double-blind review process (names of the authors invisible). To ensure a thorough and fair review process, this year’s conference will rely on a two-tier review process and we 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.

As in previous years, accepted papers will appear in Springer's Lecture Note Series in Computer Science. We will 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 may be accepted as short papers after review by the Program Committee. A small set of particularly high quality and important papers will be selected for journal publication.

Submission Procedures

Original manuscripts should be submitted in English in pdf format through Easychair (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=socinfo2019).

The submission deadline April 29, 2019.
Notification of acceptance: July 01, 2019.
Camera ready: July 29, 2019.

All the deadlines are at 23:59:59 Anywhere on Earth Time.

Because SocInfo will publish proceedings, manuscripts should be formatted according to Springer LNCS paper formatting guidelines.
