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|
