What's in a dyad? Interaction and Exchange in Social Media

Workshop website:
Conference website:

Conference: SocInfo 2014 @ Barcelona, Spain in November 10-13, 2014
Submission deadline: September 8, 2014

A great deal of work has used computational methods to investigate the 
intensity, structure, topic and sentiment of social interactions. But 
neither information alone nor structure in isolation can be considered 
fully responsible for the complexity of social life, whether on- or 
offline. Online interactions can be conceptualized as a social exchange, 
and also as a process through which meaning emerges through dialogue 
between the two partners, i.e. a dyad. We aim for the DYAD workshop to 
examine online interactions from a number of rich perspectives.

Invited speakers include Cristian Danescu-Niculescu-Mizil (Max Planck 
Institute SWS), Bruno Gonçalves (Aix-Marseille Université), and Carlos 
Diuk-Wasser (Facebook, Inc.)

The workshop welcomes submissions on topics related to computational 
approaches to the study of social interaction, relevant to fields as 
diverse as social psychology, behavioral economics, sociolinguistics as 
well as computational linguistics, web science, and network science. 
Examples of relevant submissions include, but are not limited to, the 
following topics:

- detection of social expectations and norms
- status relations and power imbalances
- detection and measurement of social support, such as in critical 
situations related to illness, bullying or grieving
- self-disclosure, turn-taking, deference in interpersonal communication
- identity
- topic development and change in online conversations
- emotion dynamics in conversation thread
- social dynamics in comment thread (politics, news, interest-based 
- development of language and the self through social interaction
- language variation across communities and social relationships (e.g. 
distinguishing friends from colleagues, etc.)
- persuasive language
- pragmatics of language


Submitted works can come as either full 10-page or short 4-page papers, 
formatted according to Springer LNCS paper formatting guidelines 
( Full 
papers will be given 30 minutes and short 20 minutes for presentations. 
The authors can choose to publish their papers along with the main 
conference proceedings, or withhold such publication for future work
