Workshop Scope

Behavior and social science are increasingly recognized as a key
component in business intelligence and problem-solving. Behavior
and Social Informatics (BSI) has been emerged as a new scientific
field that studies effective methodologies, techniques and
technical tools for representing, modeling, analyzing,
understanding and managing human behaviors and social
characteristics. Unlike traditional behavior and social science,
which mainly focuses on qualitative and explicit behavior and
social appearance and drivers, BSI intends to support explicit
behavioral and societal involvement through a conversion from
transactional entity spaces to behavior/social feature spaces,
through a better understanding of interactions between users and
computing systems and better modeling of social concepts like
trust, credibility, privacy, and, and influence, further genuine
analysis of native behavior/social patterns and impacts, and the
facilitation of deployment of information technologies in various
socially-centric application domains. A typical BSI process
consists of key components including behavior/social modeling and
representation, behavior/social data construction,
behavior/social impact modeling, behavior/social pattern analysis
and utilization, and behavior/social interplay with information
technologies. Some popular examples of BSI include web usage and
user preference analysis, collective intelligence and crowd
behavior, credit evaluation, exceptional behavior analysis of
terrorist and criminals, and trading pattern analysis of
investors in capital markets.

Recent years have witnessed increasing research attention on
behavior/social-oriented analyses including behavioral and social
interaction and network, behavioral/social patterns,
behavioral/social impacts, the formation of
behavioral/social-oriented groups and collective intelligence,
and behavioral/social intelligence emergence. This trend raises
the need for launching the International Workshop on Behavior and
Social Informatics (BSI).BSI'2013 aims to increase potential
collaborations and partnerships by bringing together academic
researchers and industry practitioners from data mining,
statistics and analytics, business and marketing, finance and
politics, and behavioral, social and psychological sciences with
the objectives to present updated research efforts and progresses
on foundational and emerging interdisciplinary topics of BSI,
exchange new ideas and identify future research directions.

Paper Submissions

Submitted papers will have a peer review by the Program Committee
on the basis of technical quality, relevance to the conference
topics, originality, significance, and clarity.

The proceedings in Springers LNAI series will be post conference,
and it will be published in the second half of 2013.

All papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format only,
through the following paper submission system:

Submitting a paper to the workshop means that if the paper is
accepted, at least one author should attend the workshop to
present the paper.

Selected papers from the workshop will be recommended for special
issues with World Wide Web Journal and other top international
journals after substantial extension (to be confirmed).
