SIG Social Computing

As the quantity of data captured about and shared by individuals has exploded over the last decade, there has been a resurgence of interest in information technologies – such as social networking platforms, collaborative filtering and reputation management systems – that facilitate social interaction among individuals. With the recognition that Social Computing straddles research at the intersection of social behavior and computing technologies, we would like to encourage papers that approach this topic from a plurality of research methods and perspectives. This track welcomes submissions that explore how these Social Computing technologies have transformed how people work, communicate, and play together.

Track Chairs:
Sara Moussawi, Carnegie Mellon University,
Raquel Benbunan-Fich, Baruch College,
