Social Computing can be broadly defined as computational facilitation
of social studies and human social dynamics as well as design and use
of information and communication technologies that consider social
context. Social computing has recently become one of the central
themes across a number of information and communication technology
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. The Third IEEE International Conference on Social
Computing (SocialCom2011) provides a key forum for researchers and
industry practitioners to exchange information regarding advancements
in the state of art and practice of social computing.  The conference
is co-located with the 2d NETMOB workshop (Analysis of Mobile Phone
Datasets and Networks). Topics of particular interest include, but are
not limited to:

Social Signal Processing
Social System Design and Architectures
Social Network Analysis
Reality Mining
