Dear all,

The usual apologies for cross postings. This is a call for papers on an interesting topic on behalf of Sandra Gonzalez-Bailon.

==================================
CALL FOR PAPERS - The Future of the Social Web (FoSW'11)
http://grupoweb.upf.edu/fosw2011/cfp.html

In conjunction with the Intl. Conf. on Weblogs and Social Media (ICWSM 2011)
July 21, 2011 -- Barcelona; Catalunya (Spain)

TOPICS

The aim of this workshop is to encourage discussion and sharing of ideas and
highly innovative research results that focus on the future of the
social web.
We aim to promote interdisciplinary research and exchange of ideas in this
area, between industry and academia, in different fields (e.g., computer
science, mathematics, physics, psychology, sociology, cultural
anthropology, etc.).

In particular, we would like to discuss what the future of the web might
be in light of the recent wave of social media technologies and
services: there
is little doubt that the web is being fundamentally transformed by social
media, both in terms of how content is created and shared, and also in
terms of
how business and society are embracing social media.

We solicit the following types of submissions:

    * Highly-innovative research contributions describing innovative
results;
      e.g. new perspectives on social media mining, novel interaction
paradigms,
      empirical studies showing emerging trends, metrics, etc.

    * Position papers discussing the future of the social web; e.g. future
      developments that might be extrapolated from current evidence;
scenarios
      potentially having a strong positive or negative impact on users
and society at
      large; impact of new social media mechanisms on the future of
search, e-mail,
      and other "traditional" services; future research directions and
areas of
      opportunity for innovation.

Contributions are limited to 10 pages in ACM-SIG format, and should be
submited
through EasyChair: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=fosw2011
