      Call for papers: The 3rd Workshop on the Social Mobile Web

                  Held in conjunction with ICWSM

              July 17-21, 2011 in Barcelona (Spain)


The mobile space is evolving at an astonishing rate. At present there are over 5 billion mobile subscribers worldwide and continued advances in handset technology, services and billing models, the mobile web looks set to inspire a new age of anytime, anywhere information access. The world is also witnessing an explosion in social web services. Online social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn continue to experience huge increases in usage, with more and more users seeking novel ways of interacting with their friends and family.

In this workshop, the 3rd in the series, we are interested in the combination of these two exciting research spaces: the social web and the mobile web. The social mobile web is gaining significant momentum at present and we believe that it's going to be a highly influential research area for both industry and academia in the near future. As such this workshop will investigate the current state of the social mobile web. Topics of interest to this workshop include (but are not limited to) the following:

* Novel social interactions on mobile devices.

* Social mobile content sharing and distribution services.

* Location awareness in social mobile services.

* Context aware mobile services - beyond location.

* Social mobile search and social mobile browsing.

* User evaluations of social mobile services.

* Mobility, social networks and social network analysis.

* Models of mobile social behavior and mobile traces.

* Innovative social mobile applications.

This workshop is targeted towards researchers and practitioners interested in the mobile web and social web spaces. We encourage participation from a broad range of backgrounds including social science, computer science and cognitive psychology.

We are aiming for a variety of submissions from technical research papers to more exploratory position papers. As such, participants are invited to submit: (1) a short position or demonstration paper of 2-4 pages in length or (2) a full-length technical paper of up to 10 pages in length. Papers should be in AAAI publication format and should be submitted via EasyChair:

Note that at least one author of accepted papers needs to register and attend the workshop.
