** Social Informatics 2019 - DEADLINE EXTENSION **


Due to several requests, the submission deadline is extended to April 29, 2019.


The International Conference on Social Informatics (SocInfo’19) is an interdisciplinary venue that brings together researchers from the computational and social sciences to help fill the gap between the two communities. The goal of the conference is to provide a forum to help practitioners from the two disciplines define common research objectives and explore methodologies. The organizers welcome a broad range of contributions, from those that apply methods from the social sciences to the study of socio-technical systems, to the application of computational methods to the study of complex social processes and the use of social concepts in the design of information systems.

We solicit submission of three types of contribution:


    Full papers: should not exceed 12 pages (excluding references and any appendix), to be presented orally;

    Short papers: should not exceed 6 pages (excluding references and any appendix), to be presented orally;

    Abstracts: should be 1 page (excluding references), to be presented as posters;


Submissions will be reviewed through a double-blind review process (names of the authors invisible). To ensure a thorough and fair review process, this year’s conference will rely on a two-tier review process and we will enforce strict review guidelines to provide even higher-quality feedback to authors. To further incentivize useful and detailed feedback to authors, contributions of best reviewers will be rewarded with special mentions.


As in previous years, accepted papers will appear in Springer's Lecture Note Series in Computer Science. We will also allow accepted papers to be presented without publication in the conference proceedings, if the authors choose to do so. Some of the full paper submissions may be accepted as short papers after review by the Program Committee. A small set of particularly high quality and important papers will be selected for journal publication.


Original manuscripts should be submitted in English in pdf format through Easychair (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=socinfo2019).


    The submission deadline is April 29, 2019.

    Notification of acceptance: July 1, 2019.

    Camera ready: July 29, 2019.

All the deadlines are at 23:59:59 Anywhere on Earth Time. 


Because SocInfo will publish proceedings, manuscripts should be formatted according to Springer LNCS paper formatting guidelines.


Detailed submission information is available at http://socinfo2019.qcri.org/#call-for-papers.


We look forward to seeing in you in Doha on November 18-21, 2019!
