****************************************************************
BACKGROUND

The Social Web has become the first and main medium to get and spread
information. Everyday news is reported instantly, and social media has become
a major source for broadcasters, news reporters and political analysts as well
as a place of interaction for everyday people. For a full utilization of this
medium, information must be gathered, analyzed and semantically understood.
In this workshop we ask the question: how can Semantic Web technologies be
used to provide the means for interested people to draw conclusions,
assess situations and to preserve their findings for future use?

Research on Social Media should optimally be conducted in a interdisciplinary
manner, including fields like linguistics, information retrieval, data mining,
Semantic Web, personalization, interaction, sociology, psychology, pedagogy,
education, cognition. This workshop aims to bring together researchers from
all these fields to discuss issues regarding the potential of Social Web
analysis, from the conceptual level to technology oriented methodologies.

OBJECTIVES
The main objectives are:

*How do we make sure that the right data is collected for a specific purpose?
*How can we ensure that the collected data can be analyzed to its full extent?
*What can be learned from social media from a broad, scientific perspective
and how can it be quantified? What data is needed?
*Can results from different social media be made comparable and aggregated?
*On what level can meta-information extracted from Social Web analysis be used?
*How do we make our analysis results re-usable?


GOALS AND TOPICS

The Social Web is constantly evolving; users take new roles and usage of the
medium. To keep up with these changes, and to consolidate the past and the
future, we must find ways to bring together the constant flow of new information
with already preserved content and knowledge. This workshop will bridge the gap
between real-time Semantic and Social Web analytics and archived content.
Relevant topics include, but not limited to:

*Social Media Analytics
*Data mining
*Semantics
*Information retrieval
*HCI and social media
*User modeling
*Sentiment analysis
*Opinion mining
*Data modeling
*Cloud services
*Digital libraries
*Ontologies
*Semantic search
*Policy making
*Semantics and e-learning

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

The workshop will be a full day workshop grouped into several sessions.
All submitted papers will be evaluated by at least three members of the
program committee, based on originality, significance, technical soundness,
and clarity of expression. Submissions must be in English, and may discuss
industrial experience and/or academic research.

The proceedings will be published by Springer Verlag in their LNCS
(Lecture Notes in Computer Science) series. The final paper (if accepted) should
be formatted using the Springer LNCS style, as described at
http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html. Failure to commit to presentation
at the workshop automatically excludes a paper from the proceedings.

Papers should not exceed 5,000 words (excluding references and appendices),
and should not exceed 10 pages in the final camera-ready format (see later).
Papers are normally allocated 30 minutes for presentation.

Short papers are also welcome (panels, tutorials, demonstrations, new ideas)
that have never been published.

Both long and short papers will appear in the same LNCS proceedings.

Only electronic submissions in Adobe PDF format are acceptable.

Paper Submission site: http://submissions.onthemove-conferences.org/2013/sms

On the original submission, include a cover page with title of paper as well
as the author’s names, affiliations, and email addresses. The total number of
words in the paper (excluding cover page, tables, and references) should be
indicated on the cover page. The second page should begin with the title of
the paper followed by author names and affiliations and an abstract of
no more than 150 words.

The workshop will start with a keynote talk and end with an open discussion.
Throughout the workshop, the organizers will develop a list of topics for the
discussion at the end of the workshop. The discussion shall summarize and
provide feedback on the workshop itself and on the ongoing work in the area of
Social Media Semantics and encourage further informal collaborations. After the
workshop, a workshop report will be published on an appropriate online platform
and/or a journal for the respective communities.
