> Virtual Communities have been studied from a variety of different
> perspectives. Examples range from communities of interest to
> communities of practice, from gaming communities to communities of
> transaction. Community building and community management can be a key
> success factors in the digital economy. They can either supplement
> existing or even represent new business models in the digital economy,
> or other form of continuous interaction and social relationships. The
> communities we target may be constituted as communities' platforms,
> Internet shops, portal sites, reputation systems, educational,
> groupware systems, electronic auctions, billboards, peer-to-peer file
> sharing infrastructures, enterprises or organizations. Product-centred
> communities are relevant for online companies, as for example the
> reader community at Amazon.com or mutual support groups for software
> development. Other communities might enhance real communities or other
> forms of social networks, like support groups, fun and discussion
> groups, technical and service communities and more.
>
> Furthermore, virtual communities can be formed on different platforms:
> forums, newsgroups, listservs, chats, instant messenging and more. As
> the examples show, online communities differ in their orientation.
> Nevertheless, there are common features which all types of communities
> share: common interests, practices, languages and ontologies with
> common semantics as well as normative issues. Communities are a
> sociological phenomenon. They can foster a social atmosphere for
> interactions and transactions. We are interested in the common and
> different as well.
>
> We call for papers that address communities as a social phenomenon,
> the design of platforms and services, and community-related business
> models as critical success factors in the digital economy.
> Possible topics include, but are not limited to:
>
> - Communities as sociological phenomenon in the digital economy (e.g.,
> dynamics, relationships, information control, managing communities,
> flow of information in communities)
> - Community-related business models (e.g., productivity, trust,
> reputation systems)
> - Business Communities
> - Personalization and use of customer profiles
> - Case studies and topologies of Online Communities
> - M-Communities and hybrid communities
> - Design principles for community platforms (e.g., coordination,
> trust, normative values, design patterns and methods, implementations,
> architectures and components, personalization and avatars)
> - Formal or semi-formal models of communities and their platforms
> (e.g., conceptual frameworks, organizational models, cognitive models,
> multi-agent systems, formalizations)
>
