CALL FOR PAPERS
=============================================================

When the City Meets the Citizens Workshop , Dublin, June 4th 2012 (WCMCW)
In conjunction with the International AAAI Conference on Weblogs and
Social Media (ICWSM)
http://researcher.ibm.com/researcher/view_project.php?id=2983
=============================================================

KEYNOTE SPEAKER
We are excited to have George MacKerron, Research Associate at UCL’s
Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis and a Visiting Fellow at LSE’s
Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment,
present the keynote

BACKGROUND AND MOTIVATION
Social media has played a key role in providing insights into people's
activities, opinions and day-to-day lives. These detailed
user-generated information-streams offer a unique opportunity for
cities to understand and engage their citizens. The research domain of
smarter cities aims to monitor disruptive events (e.g., emergencies,
Olympics), analyze social behaviour, identify citizens' sentiment and
understand their interactions with services. On the other side, cities
can use their understanding of the citizen to foster stronger
relationships with the diverse communities in their constituencies.
This understanding could be applied to mobilize people on important
issues such as education, health care, political engagement and
community awareness.

Current social media research falls short of what the agenda behind
smarter cities requires. Most of the research in social media has gone
into understanding the relationship between the city and its dwellers,
and researchers have done so by collecting and analyzing what dwellers
post on social media sites. However, these sites could be used not
only to monitor citizens but also to engage them. This workshop is
interested in research that aims to progress both sides of this
relationship, but particularly research that works towards closing the
loop between the city and the citizens

This WCMC workshop fosters discussions covering topics such as (but
not limited to):
 * Use of social media to engage citizens, for example through gamification
 * Improving understanding of the city through mining social media
 * Disaster recovery and coordination using social media
 * Mobilizing the community through social media
 * Pervasive applications for user interaction and data collection
 * Enabling citizen and NGO initiatives through social media
 * Methodology for quality evaluation and validation of user generated content
 * Visualizations and interfaces to enable exploration of city data
 * Privacy and ethical concerns in citizen engagement

SUBMISSIONS
All contributions must be submitted as PDF files. The workshop accepts
full papers (no longer than 6 pages) and position papers (no longer
than 4 pages),and all must be submitted by the deadlines given above,
and formatted in AAAI two-column, camera-ready style (see the author
instructions page). All submitted papers will be reviewed and judged
on originality, technical correctness, relevance, and quality of
presentation by the Program Committee. All accepted submissions must
be presented during the workshop. Please submit papers to EasyChair
WCMCW2012 (http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=wcmcw2012).
