> In our first workshop on Modeling Social Media (MSM 2010 in Toronto,
> Canada), we explored various different models of social media ranging
> from user modeling, hypertext models, software engineering models,
> sociological models and framework models.  In our second workshop (MSM
> 2011 in Boston, USA), we addressed the user interface aspects of
> modeling social media.
> In this workshop, we will look at collective intelligence in social
> media, that is, looking at how we can make sense of the content and
> context from social media websites such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+
> and Foursquare by analyzing tweets, tags, blog posts, likes, posts and
> checkins, in order to create new knowledge and semantic meaning.
>
> GOALS AND AUDIENCE
> ==================
> The workshop aims to attract and discuss various aspects of collective
> intelligence in social media which involve frameworks for collecting
> appropriate data and collecting enough amount of data, mining the data
> from different social media and context (e.g., from mobile phones),
> creating models for inferring collective intelligence, and evaluating
> the framework to determine the accuracy of the gathered collective
> intelligence. We want to bring together researchers and practitioners
> with diverse backgrounds interested in 1) exploring different
> perspectives and approaches to modeling complex social media phenomena
> and systems through collective intelligence, 2) the different purposes
> and applications that can be created from collective intelligence of
> social media, and 3) issues of integrating and validating collective
> intelligence of social media.
>
>
> TOPICS OF INTEREST
> ==================
> Topics may include, but are not limited to:
> * new modeling techniques and frameworks for representing collective
> intelligence in social media
> * mining techniques for social media to extract collective intelligence
> * algorithms for inferring semantics, meaning and creating collective
> intelligence from social media
> * applications for collecting and displaying collective knowledge from
> social media
> * applications for using collective intelligence including recommendations
> * privacy and security issues in creating collective intelligence from
> social media
> * creating business intelligence from social media
> * (Dynamic) social media monitoring for collective intelligence
> * how social networks can be used to mine and create collective intelligence
> * individual and group behavior in social media and social networks
> * social networks for the collaboration of large communities
> * evaluating the collective intelligence to determine the accuracy and
> relevance to users
>
