How we interact with others, where we are and where we go are all facets that are increasingly captured with ever greater detail by our online tools and gadgets. The digital traces constantly produced by these tools create hitherto unseen possibilities for the study of human behavior, but also pose their own challenges. The avalanche of data we are witnessing demands new tools and concepts to be analyzed and the new problems that are within our reach demand new algorithms and models to be developed. This workshop aims to bring together practitioners of both computer science and social science so that both may better understand the challenges faced by each other and how best they may collaborate to overcome them. Topics of Interest: Topics include, but are not limited to Social Modeling, Theories and Analytics Dynamics and Evolution of Social Systems Social and Behavioral Changes Online Social Movements Collective Behavior Human Dynamics Voter Behavior Measures, metrics in characterization of Social Networks Digital Epidemiology Human mobility, models and data Analysis of Proxy Data Prediction and Prediction Markets (Wisdom of Crowds) Mixed Methods and Methodologies combining reactive and non-reactive, obtrusive and unobtrusive research methods for exploring social phenomena for collecting and storing social datasets to make research results reproducible and verifiable for analyzing biased, selective and incomplete social data on the Web for preserving individuals' privacy while studying social phenomena Algorithms, Tools and Applications that analyze social data that allow to capture social data that exploit social science findings and theories (e.g., tools that detect and prevent mobbing or depressive behavior online) Submissions: We solicit short research and demo papers (up to 4 pages), long research papers (up to 8 pages) and extended abstracts (max 2 pages with one illustration/figure). To account for the publishing practice of social scientists and physicists, we will also accept short papers and extended abstract that has already been or will be published in a journal. Paper submissions must be written in English. Use the ACM SIG Proceedings template (Full and short papers: latex template / Word template; Extended Abstracts: word template / latex template ). The review process will be single-blind (i.e., submissions do not need to be anonymized). All papers must be submitted electronically through the EasyChair submission page. Submission Deadline: May 2 (Extended) Acceptance Notification: May 20 Invited Speakers: Yong-Yeol Ahn, Indiana University School of Informatics and Computing Ciro Cattuto, ISI Foundation Brian Keegan, Northeastern University Filippo Radicchi, Indiana University School of Informatics and Computing Organizers (Alphabetical): Andrea Baronchelli, Department of Mathematics, City University London, UK Noshir Contractor, SONIC Lab, Northwestern University, USA Emilio Ferrara, School of Informatics and Computing, Indiana University, USA Bruno Gonçalves, Centre Physique Thèorique, Aix-Marseille Universitè, France Nicola Perra, MoBS Lab, Northeastern University, USA Markus Strohmaier, Web Science Dep., University of Koblenz, Germany Claudia Wagner, Computational Social Science Dep., GESIS - Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences, Germany PC Members (Alphabetical): Luca Maria Aiello, Yahoo!
