May I ask repsected members of SOCNET to advise how to test dynamic aspect of an alliance network to test whether change of specific type of partner, over time, constitutes change of motives of focal firms.

Most of this data is gathered by governmental and defence agencies. Satellites are used to capture movement and transport while 'dataveillance' captures people's use of credit card, mobile phone, and loyalty card information. CCTVs are also ubiquitous. More recently, applications to gather data using people's mobile phones as a sensor in the urban space have appeared and contribute to this pool of urban data. This unprecedented bottom-up approach achieves collaborative collection of large quantities of data. 'Participatory Urbanism' sees a shift in mobile device usage - from communication tool to networked mobile personal measurement instrument. Through this, individual citizens can become more proactive in their involvement with their city, neighborhood, and urban self-reflexivity. Given this growing pool of data of the urban space, there is a question on how the data can be used fruitfully and sensibly to better understand sociality and to inform future planning of our urban environment. Objectives ---------- This workshop aims to bring together researchers and practitioners to discuss and explore research challenges and opportunities in social computing in urban spaces. We are seeking multi-disciplinary contributions that reveal interesting aspects about urban social life and exploit the sensory data as well as digital traces (e.g. mobile phone data, online social network data, transportation traces) to create novel urban social applications that benefit citizens, urban planners, and policy makers. The SocialUrb-2011 Workshop fosters discussions covering topics such as (but not limited to): * Analysis of social networks in urban spaces * Social computing applications for urban planning and design * Social sensing methodology * Computational social study of urban spaces * Mining of data collected from urban social networks * Urban social geography * Multi-source urban social information integration * Real-time urban social information processing * Case studies and applications of mixed urban social sensing and mining * Middleware for mobile urban social computing * City-related knowledge infrastructure and computational models * Urban social application demos and visualizations * Security, privacy, reputation, and trust issues in urban social computing * Impact of social computing technologies in the urban space e.g. economical, psychological. Submission ---------- Submission must be in IEEE conference paper style with no more than 6 pages in PDF file (http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html). Submit your paper(s) at the SocialUrb-2011 submission site (https://www.easychair.org/account/signin.cgi? conf=socialurb2011). All contributions must not have been previously published or be under consideration for publication elsewhere. All submitted papers will be reviewed and judged on originality, technical correctness, relevance, and quality of presentation by the Technical Program Committee. Should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors must attend the workshop to present the work in order for the paper to be published by IEEE and included in the IEEE Digital Library.

COINS11 brings together practitioners, researchers and students of the design and science of collaboration to share, learn, and gain inspiration. Conference activities will take place throughout the Old City of Basel. Attendees will be encouraged to engage with the community, meet local entrepreneurs, artists, and designers, take a guided tour of the city, and participate in hands-on workshops and interactive sessions. Where science, art and design meet, COINS11 looks at the emerging forces behind the phenomena of open-source, creative, and entrepreneurial movements. Through interactive workshops, professional presentations, and fascinating keynotes, COINS11 combines a wide range of interdisciplinary fields such as social network analysis, group dynamics, design and visualization, information systems and the psychology and sociality of collaboration. The COINS11 conference committee seeks original and creative paper submissions, workshop ideas and concepts, unique artifacts or installations, and engaging rapid-fire presentations celebrating the theme Thinking the Swarm. This year we are asking what is relevant with regard to the innovative powers of creative swarms, what are the observable qualities of virtual collaboration, and how does the quest for global cooperation affect local networks? We invite both theoretical and practice-based dialogues, case studies, technological solutions, research studies, and interactive artifacts that thoroughly reflect this years conference theme. We invite researchers and designers to submit their latest scientific results and experimental design solutions as full research papers, workshop proposals, artifact demonstrations in the following conference themes: + Collaboration in a Global Context: Optimization through Collaboration | Teamwork through virtually enhanced Collaboration | Measuring the performance of COINs | Patterns of swarm creativity + Group Collaboration: Collaborative Leadership | Design and visualization in interdisciplinary collaboration | Group dynamics and global teaming in virtual collaboration + Individual Aspects of Collaboration: The psychology and sociality of collaboration | Social Behavior Modeling | Social Intelligence and Social Cognition + Tools and Methods: Social System Design and Architectures | Dynamic Social Network Analysis | Semantic Social Network Analysis Papers: Abstract Submission Deadline June 15, 2011 COINS11 seeks original, high-quality papers that reflect the full breadth and scope of collaboration science and design including: bold research ideas, conceptual developments, research investigations, methodological & theoretical advances, design ideas, development experiences and more. Submissions should report original research, reflections on theoretical concerns, methodological advances, or other insights that contribute to our understanding of all aspects of collaboration and help advance the state of knowledge for the community. We encourage perspectives from diverse disciplinary backgrounds. Besides being published in the conference proceedings, selected papers will also be published by Springer in an edited volume on "Collaborative Innovation Networks". Workshops: Proposals Submission Deadline EXTENDED May 30, 2011 Workshops will take place during the conference and will form part of the main program. This year we are accepting proposals for both two-hour and four-hour sessions. Workshops are intended to provide a forum for exchanging ideas, sharing experiences, fostering conversation and research communities, learning from each other, exploring controversies, engaging in debate, envisioning future directions and elaborating new methods and perspectives. Workshop activities can range from open forum discussion, to demonstrations or presentations with discussion, to collaborative activities such as structured brainstorming, illustrative games or role-plays. Whatever the focus or format, organizers will be required to schedule time for conversation, reflection, discussion, and debate. Although we envision most workshop activities to take place in one setting, let us know if your workshop will venture out into other sites in Basel. Pecha Kucha: Proposals Submission Deadline June 15, 2011 This is the first year COINs is introducing Pecha Kucha (pronounced: peh-cha-ku-cha) presentations. An informal, engaging and highly visual presentation of 10 slides, each one exactly 30 seconds, for a total presentation time of 5 minutes,. Pecha Kucha presentations at COINS11 are intended to communicate quickly and efficiently various ideas related to social network analysis, group dynamics, design and visualization, information systems and the psychology and sociality of collaboration. We encourage submissions that are visually engaging, loaded with thought provoking content and provide a strong point of view on a specific topic related to the conference theme. Artifacts: Proposals Submission Deadline June 15, 2011 The artifacts category seeks to provide participants with an opportunity to present work in a forum that facilitates open discussion and enables direct interaction with conference attendees. A dedicated session will be held during the conference to present the artifacts. Artifacts can be anything from design sketchbooks to reformed organizational processes, advertisements, products, short films, conceptual objects, etc. We encourage submissions that are thought provoking and visually engaging, and which cover exploratory/speculative work, smaller projects, unusual representations of ethnographic work, and so on. The form of the presented materials is open. In keeping with the category title artifacts, we encourage submissions based on some material installation that can be exhibited at the conference. Our hope is that the tangible quality will, in part, prompt interaction with and between conference attendees.
