Call for Research Papers

The International Conference on Social Informatics (SocInfo) is an interdisciplinary venue for researchers from informatics and the social & management sciences to come together to share ideas and opinions, and to present original research work. The goal is to create an opportunity for the dissemination of knowledge between the two communities, as well as to enable mutual critical discussion of current research.

The conference solicits original research and experience-based case study papers. It welcomes interdisciplinary papers on methods from the social sciences in the study of information systems, applying information technology in the study of social phenomena, or applying social concepts in the design of information systems.

Detailed research topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Computational models of social phenomena and social simulation Recommendation systems
Social networks and communities: discovery, evolution, analysis, and applications Social applications of the semantic Web
Mining social big data Social system design and architectures
Social behavior modeling Virtual communities (e.g., open-source, multiplayer gaming, etc.)
Social Influence and diffusion models of social influence Impact of technology on socio-economic, security, defense aspects
Web mining and its social interpretations Visualization of dynamic social networks
Security, privacy, trust, reputation, and incentive issues Social interactions and collaboration
Credibility of online content Socio-economic systems and applications
Opinion mining and social media analytics Social informatics theory
Design and analysis of Web2.0 applications (social or collaborative Web applications) Intelligence and social cognition
Algorithms and protocols inspired by human societies Temporal characteristics of social media and social interactions
Mechanisms for providing fairness in information systems Real-time analysis and visualization of social phenomena
Social choice mechanisms in the e-society Evaluating sociability of applications

Submissions should be original and should be submitted in English in pdf format to the submission system . They should be formatted according to Springer LNCS paper formatting guidelines. The length of the full papers should not exceed 14 pages.

As in the previous years, the accepted papers will appear in Springer’s Lecture Note Series in Computer Science. Some of the full paper submissions can be accepted as short papers based on the decision of the Program Committee.
