Furthermore, social computing facilitates collective action and social interaction. While such collaboration and interaction enables many diverse opportunities, it also raises concerns about user privacy. We are interested in papers that address various privacy challenges in collaborative and social computing including (but not limited to): - Access control techniques for preserving user privacy - Adversary models for privacy - Anonymity and pseudonymity - Data anonymization techniques - Detecting privacy violations - Privacy and ethical implications - Privacy-preserving data mining - Privacy-preserving data publishing - Scalable privacy technologies - Understanding privacy policies - Usability of privacy technologies The collaborative and social computing application areas of interest include, but are not limited to: - Collaborative authoring and tagging systems - Collaborative learning systems - Collaborative sensor networks - Crowdsourcing systems - Human computation - Internet of Things - Online social networks - Recommender systems - Vehicular networks Important Dates: - Paper Submission Deadline: Jul. 11, 2016 - Notification of Acceptance: Aug. 25, 2016 Program Co-Chairs: Elena Ferrari, University of Insubria, Italy Barbara Carminati, University of Insubria, Italy Amir Masoumzadeh, SUNY Albany, USA _____________________________________________________________________ SOCNET is a service of INSNA, the professional association for social network researchers (http://www.insna.org).
