Call For Papers

Integrated Social Customer Relationship Management (Social CRM) is an emerging concept that includes strategies, processes and technologies that use social media in CRM. Approaches from the field of web intelligence are important to transform the large mass of data available on social media into value adding opportunities for companies. Today, a variety of software applications based on web and text-mining techniques is used for this task. These are helpful for identifying relevant social media postings and for extracting information, but they often fall short of identifying complex patterns from large, dispersed and unstructured databases that are required by decision makers in CRM processes. Such patterns are for example about the semantic relationships between actors, the recognition of business related information in postings or about the intention and attitude of social media users. Advanced techniques, such as semantic business intelligence (SBI) (e.g., semantic enrichment and disambiguation of social media data, data warehouses based on the semantic web, semantic interoperability) or computational intelligence (CI) (e.g. artificial neural networks, Bayesian models, fuzzy systems and evolutionary computing), promise a great potential to improve the capabilities in knowledge discovery and may also enable new usage scenarios in Social CRM (e.g. impact simulation, network analysis, topic recognition, trend prediction) in various domains (e.g. tourism, banking, energy, public sector, publishing, health, logistics, education). While such techniques are already discussed in the research community, their current application and integration in commercial tools and real-world scenarios is limited. Reasons seem to be not only maturity or missing expertise, but also aspects such as ease-of-use, configuration costs or unavailable resources such as ontologies or frameworks.

The workshop aims to shed light on current research efforts from a technical and economical perspective targeting the development and implementation of innovative tools and methods for intelligent data analysis in Social CRM, resulting in new (integrated) processes and capabilities for Social CRM. The setup is interdisciplinary and invites researchers as well as professionals to contribute research papers, case studies or to present prototypes on relevant topics, both completed and ongoing.
