SocialComNet 2013 Call for Papers (Korea, September 2013: submission deadline March 15 )

The 2013 International Workshop on 
Social Computing, Network, and Services 
(SocialComNet 2013)

September 4-6, 2013, Gwangju, Korea

(in Conjunction with FutureTech 2013)


Recently, social computing and networking has been driving dramatic evolution in the way people communicate and interact with each other, attracting great attention from the research community as well as the business world. Social computing not only includes Web 2.0 elements such as blogs, twitter, and wikis, etc, but also stands for a collection of the technologies that gather, process, compute, and visualize social information and the studies that model and analyze dynamics of participants in social networks.

With the advent of the social computing era, SocialComNet-2013 aims at reporting the most recent progresses, trends, and concerns in this rapidly growing area. This workshop will provide a forum for participants from the computing and social science communities and publish state-of-art research papers. Furthermore, we expect that the workshop and its publications will trigger related research and technology innovation in this important subject.
