Workshop on Issues and Challenges in Social Computing (WICSOC 2012)

Important Dates.
Submission: April 30
Acceptance: June 1

Workshop Venue: Las Vegas, USA
Workshop Date: August 10, 2012

Social computing has increasingly become an important paradigm of
computing and technology development. The novel idea behind this paradigm
is to leverage social connections and social intelligence in computer
systems and applications in order to devise solutions. These social
computing applications/systems gather abundance of social information that
when mined and analyzed will further enrich their services or help
researchers understand many different things including social dynamics of
people, wisdom of crowd, social construction and sharing of knowledge,
etc. Novel techniques for information analysis, reuse, and integration are
critical to make sense of social information. Systematic approaches,
design principles, and evaluation strategies need to be researched for
developing effective social computing applications. Other challenges in
social computing include accommodating privacy, security, and trust
expectations of users. The aim of this workshop is to discuss and exchange
ideas on the issues and challenges in social computing systems. We invite
research or position papers from researchers and practitioners working in
any aspect of social computing. Example topics, but not limited to,
•       Design, modeling, and simulation of social computing systems
•       Reuse/integration of social information/social metadata
•       Integration of structured/ unstructured/semi-structured social
•       Social information mining
•       Privacy, territoriality, security, and trust issues in social
•       Social computing for business
•       Social media and Gov 2.0 (e-government)
•       Social health applications
•       Mobile social software
•       Social learning systems
•       Social recommendation systems
•       Social information management
•       Evaluation of social computing system

All contributions will be peer-reviewed by at least three experts. Papers
should be 4-6 pages (English) in IEEE format, including bibliography and
well-marked appendices. Accepted papers will be published as workshop
papers in the IEEE IRI conference proceedings.

The extended versions of the best papers from the workshop will be
considered for Journal.

Program Chairs:
•       Barbara Carminati, Department of Computer Science and Communication,
University of Insubria, Italy
•       Mohd Anwar, School of Information Sciences, University of
Pittsburgh, USA
