With the Internet rapidly taking on the role of a global marketplace for the exchange of ideas, experiences and knowledge, an interesting research area has emerged: social computing. Social computing lies at the intersection of social behavior and computing systems. It focuses on the use of technology to create social conventions and contexts, as well as the new relationships and power structures that result. Three widely-agreed tenets of social computing are (i) the shift of innovation from a top-down to a bottom-up model; (ii) the shift of value from ownership to experiences; and (iii) the shift of power from institutions to communities.

Social computing (also known as Web 2.0 and social media) has drawn much interest in academia, the information technology industry and among Internet users. This track at ITNG 2011 will serve as a platform for those researching this area. Submissions may include research, system, evaluation, policy and position papers. Topics include, but are not limited to:

* Use of information communication technologies for social computing
* Mobile social computing
* Infrastructure and architectures for social computing
* Online communities and social networking
* Social tagging and collaborative information organization
* Information retrieval and sharing techniques
* Usability and user needs
* Applications and case studies in social computing
* Novel applications supporting user-generated content and social interaction
* Social, institutional and policy issues in social computing
* Social computing in schools, enterprises and other organizations
* Collaboration and social computing
* Social computing trends and issues

Proceedings will be published by the IEEE Conference Publishing Services and indexed in major databases. Electronic submission in PDF or MS Word format are required. Papers must represent high quality and previously unpublished work, not currently under review by another conference, workshop, or journal.

Interested authors should submit a 6-page paper of their original and unpublished work including 5 keywords in the IEEE format. Your submission should include the author names, complete mailing addresses, telephone and fax numbers, and the email addresses of the authors. For formatting and submission instructions, please refer to

When submitting papers via the online submission system, remember to indicate that the paper is meant for the "Social Computing" track. This option is found in the "Submission Categories" section in the system. If using the online submission system is somehow not possible, please email the track co-chairs for assistance.

Papers will be evaluated for originality, significance, clarity, and soundness. Per ITNG policy, except for invited papers, all papers will be reviewed by at least two independent reviewers.

Submission Deadline: October 15, 2010
Author Notification: November 26, 2010
Camera Ready Paper Due: February 4, 2011
