Call For Papers

In recent years the research area of social mobile and networking technologies has made rapid progress, due to the increasing development of new mobile technologies and the widespread usage of the Internet as a new platform for social interactions.

Applications of mobile and networking technologies serve groups of people in shared activities, in particular geographically dispersed groups who are collaborating on some task in a shared context. An important characteristic of those social applications is the continuous interaction between people and technology to achieve a common purpose. Moreover, social applications tend to be large-scale and complex, involving difficult social and policy issues such as those related to privacy and security access.

Mobile technologies are devoted to play an important role in many areas of social activities, most likely in those areas where the right data in the right time have mission-critical importance. Mobile technologies play an essential role in personalizing working and interaction contexts, and supporting experimentation and innovation.

Social Networking technologies join friends, family members, co-workers and other social communities together. These technologies are convergent, emerging from a variety of applications such as search engines and employee evaluation routines while running on equally diverse platforms from server clusters to wireless phone networks.

The third generation of social networking technologies has hit the Web. This network serve increasingly significant social functions. Networking technologies have to face emerging problems of robustness, such as vulnerabilities to reliability and performance due to malicious attack.

Workshop participants can extent their background on this area, exchange ideas with other researchers and propose new solutions.

The aim of the proposed workshop is to gather researchers, from academia and industry, and practitioners to discuss about new mobile and networking technologies, to identify challenging problems that appear in social applications of those technologies and to show results and experiences realized by researchers. The workshop will be organized in a way to stimulate interaction among the participants. Shorter position papers may be presented from researchers of all backgrounds, in particular social-mobile technologies, information networking, human-computer interaction, security and privacy.

Topics of interest to this workshop include, but are not limited to:

• Social networking technologies
• Social network analysis
• Mobile Social networks
• Social media technologies
• Semantic web
• Mobile and network security and privacy
• Web and mobile accessibility
• knowledge Sharing and management
• Human-computer interaction
• Multi-modal applications
• Online communities and Social Computing
• Wireless technologies and services
• Mobile applications and services
• Mobile social services
• Mobile business services
• Future mobile applications
