The Computers in Human Behavior seeks original manuscripts for the Special
Issue on “Social and Humanistic Computing for the Knowledge Society”
scheduled to appear in a 2009 issue. The accepted articles must be presented
in the 1st World Summit on the Knowledge Society: 

Twelve articles will be selected for publication in this CHB special issue. 

The key objective of the special issue is to advancing the knowledge on the
so-called social and humanistic computing or social informatics, in simple
words the application of information technologies and mutlidisciplinary
research towards a new era of social interactions and human experiences with

This special issue aims at leading multidisciplinary research and practice
on the critical themes of the human and society. With the main emphasis
placed on the demonstration of innovations and new approaches to the
deployment of information and communication for human-centric and
society-sensitive systems, this special issue actively promotes a dialogue
for developing a better world. 

This special issue in the context of the FIRST WORLD SUMMIT ON THE KNOWLEDGE
SOCIETY investigates computing approaches to humanity’s and society’s
agendas, and provides a publication outlet for a new emerging discipline
which stands in the converging domains of high tech technologies,
intelligent systems and human-sensitive, context-aware experiences. In this
journal, Social and Humanistic Computing stands for a holistic approach to
human/social-centric design of pervasive, personalized, ubiquitous systems,
providing and supporting a new era of human/social experience that goes
beyond the traditional perceptions of the interaction of humans with IT and IS. 


- On the one hand, we aim to investigate the social and humanistic computing
issues in different contexts as illustrated by the human activities eg:
living, science, health, culture, education, knowledge, learning, commerce,
business, education, construction, etc.
- On the other hand we promote in horizontal lines the different views of
social computing by supporting a scientific debate with the participation of
the industry for the new kinds of human- and social-centric systems.

Topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

·	Human and social computing in living, science, health, culture,
government, education, knowledge, learning, commerce, business, education,
·	Personalization with emerging semantic web and web 2.0 approaches
·	Social networks research
·	Social software
·	Collaborative platforms
·	Personalisation and adaptation
·	Usability studies
·	Context awareness
