the 3rd International Workshop on Social Computing (SOCO 2011)
July 9, 2011 Beijing, China
Social computing can be broadly defined as computational facilitation of social studies and human social dynamics as well as the design and use of information and communication technologies that consider social context. In recent years, social computing has become one of the central themes across a number of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) fields and attracted significant interest from not only researchers in computing and social sciences, but also software and online game vendors, Web entrepreneurs, political analysts, digital government practitioners, among others. Social computing issues also play an eminent role in many ISI-related research topics..
The SOCO workshop series started in 2008 as part of the IEEE ISI 2008 held in Taipei. It was held again in 2009 in conjunction with the IEEE ISI 2009 in Dallas, Texas. This third SOCO workshop intends to bring together social computing researchers to address a wide range of methodological and application-driven topics, employing research methods from both computational sciences and social sciences. The workshop program includes 8 papers. The co-hosts of SOCO 2011 are the National University of Defense Technology, and the Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Sciences.
