Social Networking and Communities - The big and the small screen

26-27 November, 2009

Second CMI Conference in Copenhagen


Call for Papers

Deadline for abstracts: 14 August, 2009


Worldwide, people connect via the web and extend their social communities
beyond what could ever have been realized without the web. Denmark globally
has one of the highest numbers of users of web-based social networking sites
per habitant. Till now, users of web-based social networking and communities
have mainly used traditional computers with large screens. For many users,
the concept of social networking means always on which sets focus on the
trend of being able to do social networking also on smart phones and other
smaller screens. The transition from the big screen to the small screen in
relation to social networking and communities outlines a number of
challenges that the second CMI conference will discuss. Areas to be
discussed are: how to secure the privacy for social network users; which are
the demands to operators/content providers on the price structure; how can
the technological sustainability be secured with the smaller screens; which
are the alternative interaction mechanisms to secure that users still have a
good user experience; which new types of services will be relevant to mobile
devices; how will the different initiatives and services coexist and which
demands must be set to the standardization when convergence takes place in
this way?

The second CMI conference discusses the demands and challenges set out to
the market and the stakeholders; to the technology and the interaction
between users and the technology; and the users and their demands to the
mobile part of the web-based social networking. CMI welcomes extended
abstracts related to research on computer based social networking with
particular focus on the following topics (but is in no way limited to):

. Mobility and social networks
