Our online ways and means of connecting with others and maintaining ties for
everyday life, community, work, learning and play are changing dramatically
with the increasing adoption and use of social networking applications such
as Facebook, MySpace, etc., immersive worlds such as Second Life, and more
comprehensive online support environments such as collaboratories, virtual
communities, and online communities of practice. These new settings provide
the infrastructure for new patterns of connectivity, new ways of working,
learning and playing with known and unknown others, locally and globally
distributed, with common and diverse cultural experiences.

 

This minitrack for HICSS 42 calls for papers that address the design,
analysis, theory, review, experiments and/or observation of social networks,
virtual communities, and virtual worlds in the contexts of work, school,
home, community, and play. Papers from all methodological approaches are
welcome, including design and user studies, quantitative and qualitative
research, and theoretical work. Interdisciplinary work is particularly
encouraged. All papers should be well grounded in the literature, present
original work, and make a substantial addition to the literature in this
area.

 

Examples of topics for this minitrack include, but are not limited to the

following:

 

.       Online communities: organizational, group and individual behavior

.       Design for online networks and communities

.       E-learning: structures, implementation, and practices

.       Interaction between the off-line and online community

.       Online gaming: design, economics, behavior

.       Collaborative work, learning or gaming online

.       Peer-to-peer or mobile services for virtual communities

.       Case studies and topologies of online communities

.       Theoretical models of virtual worlds

.       Business and organizational models of virtual worlds

.       Economic behaviors in virtual worlds, and game economies

.       Synergies and conflicts between real and virtual worlds

.       Identity in virtual worlds

.       Interface design for social networking, virtual worlds, virtual
communities

.       Social networking agents

.       Anti-social behavior, online addiction, predatory behavior online
