Call For Papers
The 6th International Conference on Social Informatics
November 10-13, 2014, Barcelona, Spain
@socinfo2014 - #socinfo14
Deadline for papers: August 8, 2014 (23:59 Hawaii Standard Time)
Notification of acceptance: October 3, 2014
The International Conference on Social Informatics (SocInfo) is an interdisciplinary venue that brings together researchers from informatics and social sciences to help fill the gap between the two communities. The goal of the conference is to contribute to the definition and exploration of common methodologies and research goals that encompass the objectives and motivate the two disciplines. The venue welcomes contributions on methods from the social sciences applied to the study of socio-technological systems but also about the application of information technology to the study of complex social processes, and the use of social
concepts in the design of information systems.
The conference creates an opportunity for the dissemination of knowledge between the two communities by soliciting presentations of original research papers and experience-based case studies in computer science, sociology, psychology, political science, anthropology, economics, linguistics, artificial intelligence, social network analysis, and other disciplines that can shed light on the open questions in the growing field of computational social science.
The event will also offer tutorials, workshops and keynote talks that will be tailored to address the collaboration between the two research cultures in an era when social interactions are ubiquitous and span offline, online and augmented reality worlds.
Research topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Original manuscripts should be submitted in English in pdf format to the EasyChair submission system:
Manuscripts should be formatted according to Springer LNCS paper formatting guidelines:
The length of the full papers should not exceed 14 pages (excluding references).
As in the previous years, the accepted papers will appear in Springer’s Lecture Note Series in Computer Science but we also allow accepted papers to be presented without publication in the conference proceedings, if the authors choose to do so. Some of the full paper submissions can be accepted as short papers based on the decision of the Program Committee. Best papers will be selected and invited for extended journal publications.
To ensure a thorough and fair review process, this year’s conference will rely on a two-tier review process and will enforce strict review guidelines to provide even higher-quality feedback to authors. To further incentivate good feedback to authors, contributions of best reviewers will be awarded with special mentions.
