Call for papers: 2nd International Workshop on Analyzing Social Media for the Benefit of Society (Society 2.0)
Call for papers: 2nd International Workshop on Analyzing Social Media for the Benefit of Society (Society 2.0), to be held in conjunction with the 7th IEEE International Conference on Social Computing and Networking (SocialCom) 2014Â on 3-5 December 2014. Sydney, Australia.
Qualitative and quantitative social research has changed significantly with the rise of Web 2.0, which has enabled publishing of user-generated content on an epic scale. This "Big Social Data" is most evidently manifested in the advent of social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and MySpace, and its analysis is becoming incredibly important to the empirical study of society.
Recent academic studies of social media provide some interesting insights into the online society. They also highlight the importance of developing appropriate digital analysis methods and tools to enable researchers to capture, analyze and visualize the vast amount of data now becoming available. This workshop will be a blend of positional presentations, novel research presentations, discussions about the current status, emergent areas and trends in social media analysis.
Contributions are invited on (but not limited to) the following topics:
- Risk Awareness, Assessment and Management
- Security and Privacy
- Event modelling and forecasting
- Analysis of social 'mood'
- Information flow analysis
- Complex Societal Interaction Modelling
- Online Behaviour Modelling and Analysis
- Disaster Management
- Economic forecasting
- Topic Clustering
- Anomaly Detection
- Informing Social Policy and Government
- Temporal Societal Structure Modelling
- Social Influence Analysis
