CfP Int. Workshop on Social Media Analysis


2007 International Workshop on Social Media Analysis

Silicon Valley, USA, November 2-5, 2007

Workshop of 2007 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Joint Conference on Web
Intelligence and Intelligent Agent Technology (WI-IAT'07)

Social media like weblogs, online forums, photo and video sharing
services have revolutionized our ways of sharing information and
interacting with each other. Companies can now collect different
types of business intelligence from the blogosphere for setting their
own strategies in a more dynamic fashion. The blossom of social media
opens up new opportunities and creates new information and knowledge
management challenges as the media continues to grow.

This workshop solicits original research work addressing fundamental
computational issues on the analysis of social media. Topics include
but not limited to:

* Intelligent crawling, indexing and content management
* Text processing and analysis for social media (e.g., pre-
preprocessing, information extraction, clustering, classification,
sentiment analysis, polarity identification, etc.)
* Mutimedia content processing, tagging, classification, indexing and
* Context-aware searching
* User behaviour analysis and profiling
* Collaborative filtering and personalization
* Social network analysis and community mining techniques
* Trend identification and tracking
* Intelligent human web interaction for on-line community
visualization and navigation
* Intelligent systems for collaborative ontology building
* Emerging semantics analysis
* Web 2.0 and other innovative social media applications

Full paper submissions due: June 20, 2007
Notification of acceptances: August 3, 2007
Final camera-ready papers due: August 17, 2007

THE VIRTUAL 2007 - INTERACTION - a conference


call for papers

deadline for abstracts; May 15th.

The research programme Man Medium Machine [M3] and the School of Communication, Technology & Design at Södertörn university college, invites to a three-day conference on the theme "The Virtual: interaction".

The conference will be held at Almåsa conference centre, in the archipelago of Haninge, south of Stockholm.

The theme of this year's "The Virtual" conference is interaction. 'Interaction' is naturally at the core of many researchers strive to understand people's use and engagement with information technology. 'Interaction' also attempts to capture the interdisciplinary focus that the conference has developed in previous years. The conference seeks to create a meeting space for research that spans from interaction design and HCI to social and humanistic perspectives on technology. 'Interaction' is also about the relation between people and how they are affected by digital media, their living situation, and so on.

We hope to attract researchers that like to involve in a discussion of how these two fields of research may enrich each other. The particular themes of this years conference include, but are not limited to;
* technology for the experience of nature
* the body and/in information technology
* art, body and design
* new forms for media production
* amateurs, end-users, and hobbyists as digital media producers
* games that transcend physical and virtual boundaries
* novel methodologies and approaches in interaction design practice
* consumer and user participation in media and storytelling
* sketching of interactive behaviour
* expressions of ideology in design and digital technologies
* gender and intersectionalist studies of interaction practices
* the construction of identity, gender, normality, etc., in virtual communities
* the interaction between online and offline subjectivites, actions, identities, etc.

keynotes [will be updated with 1-2 more]
