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 Mobile Social Social Behavior Modeling Social Intelligence and Social Cognition Social Media Analytics and Social Media Intelligence Social Computing Applications such as collaborative filtering, bookmarking, tagging, and multi-agent systems Emotional Intelligence, Cultural Dynamics, Opinion Representation, and Influence Process Data Mining, Machine Learning, Information Retrieval, Artificial Intelligence in Social Contexts Trust, Privacy, Risk and Security in Social Contexts ELECTRONIC SUBMISSION Prepare your manuscripts with IEEE conference paper styles not more than 8 pages in PDF file.
