1st International Workshop on Socially Intelligent Computing
Part of the OnTheMove OTM Federated Conferences and Workshops 2012 (OTM’12)
Rome, Italy, 13 – 14 September 2012
abstract submission by May 18 2012
paper submission by May 25, 2012
The International Workshop on Socially Intelligent Computing (SINCOM) provides a forum on the study, design, development and evaluation of the emergent intelligence that human-computer systems demonstrate. Socially intelligent computational systems bring together people and computers, support the creation of radically new forms of collaboration, communication and intelligence and allow the generation of new, emergent behaviors. Socially Intelligent Computing research is closely related to two other areas of research: “social computing”, i.e. the design and use of information and communication technologies that consider social context; and to the field of “collective intelligence”, i.e. systems that facilitate the collective behavior of groups of individual actors – people, computational agents, and organizations – and exhibit intelligent characteristics such as perception, learning, judgment, or problem solving.
The International Workshop on Socially Intelligent Computing (SINCOM) addresses all technological aspects of socially intelligent computing, that span a variety of issues from advanced collaborative systems to using semantic technologies and the web of linked open data to support sociality in computational systems. The workshop aims to attract research that addresses either intra- and cross-enterprise settings or uses intelligent computing infrastructures that exploit social media on the web. There is no restriction in the application focus of work to be submitted: papers from different domains ranging from e.g. corporate idea management to citizen engagement are welcome.
The objective of the 1st International Workshop on Socially Intelligent Computing is to bring together researchers, developers and practitioners to discuss research issues and experiences in the study, development and deployment of Socially Intelligent Computing concepts, applications, and systems. The workshop will provide an international forum for the presentation of both theoretical and practical results aiming at the identification of items for a research agenda.

Abstract Submission deadline: May 18, 2012
Paper Submission deadline: May 25, 2012
Acceptance Notification: July 2, 2012
Camera-Ready due: July 16, 2012
Author Registration due: July 16, 2012
SINCOMí12 Workshop: September 13 – 14, 2012
Papers submitted to SINCOM12 must not have been accepted for publication elsewhere or be under review for another workshop or conference. All submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of expression. All papers will be refereed by at least three members of the program committee. All submissions must be in English.
Papers should not exceed 10 pages in the final camera-ready format. Submissions must be laid out according to the final camera-ready formatting instructions and must be submitted in PDF format.
The final proceedings will be published by Springer Verlag as LNCS (Lecture Notes in Computer Science). Additionally, extended versions of the best papers from the Workshop may be considered for a submission in a special issue of an International Journal indexed by ISI Thomson Reuter.
Author instructions can be found at:
Failure to comply with the formatting instructions for submitted papers will lead to the outright rejection of the paper without review. Failure to commit to presentation at the conference automatically excludes a paper from the proceedings.
The paper submission site will be announced shortly.
