2nd Call for Papers:

The Fifth International Conference on Social Informatics

The Fifth International Conference on Social Informatics
(SocInfo2013) 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, as well as proposals for demonstrations. 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 for this conference include,
but are not limited to:

- Computational models of social phenomena and social simulation

- Social networks and communities: discovery, evolution,
  analysis, and applications

- Mining social big data

- Social behavior modeling

- Social Influence and diffusion models of social influence

- Web mining and its social interpretations

- Security, privacy, trust, reputation, and incentive issues

- Credibility of online content

- Opinion mining and social media analytics

  collaborative Web applications)

- Algorithms and protocols inspired by human societies

- Mechanisms for providing fairness in information systems
