Call for Participation for  OCSC 2013 - Fifth International Conference
on Online Communities and Social Computing

(an affiliated conference in the context of HCI International 2013)

15th International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction 21-26 July
2013,  Las Vegas, NV, USA

A. Ant Ozok, USA and
Panayiotis Zaphiris, Cyprus

The conference objective is to provide an international forum for the
dissemination and exchange of scientific information on theoretical,
generic, and applied issues of Online communities and Social
computing. Social activity is a fundamental aspect of human life. The
development of Internet technologies in recent years has radically
altered the landscape for human and social interaction. Web
applications proliferate which offer rich, interactive user
experiences and facilitate community-based knowledge sharing and
collaboration. Online communities and Social computing lie at the
intersection of social behavior and computing systems, focusing on the
use of technology to create social conventions and contexts. The
conference solicits papers reporting results, covering a broad range
of research and development activities on a variety of related topics.

The HCII 2013 Conference Proceedings will be published by Springer in
a multi-volume set. Papers will appear in volumes of the LNCS and LNAI
series. Extended Poster abstracts will be published in the CCIS
series. All volumes will be available on–line through the SpringerLink
Digital Library, readily accessible by all subscribing libraries
around the world, and will be indexed by a number of services
including EI and ISI CPCI-S.

Submission categories and deadlines are provided on the conference

The HCI International series has a long established tradition of
inviting distinguished scientists and professionals in the HCI field
to organize parallel sessions.

Session organizers are responsible for:

* Inviting 7 prospective authors (academics, researchers and
practitioners known in the field for their acknowledged work) to
submit paper contributions.
* Organizing and carrying out the peer-review process on the basis of
the full paper or of an extended abstract. Together, the papers in
this session should, in a complementary way, cover in breadth and in
depth the thematic topic of your choice. This topic should contribute
to the overall goals of the conference, and should be compatible with
its specific objectives.
* Setting up any intermediate deadlines with the authors in a way that
would ensure that the camera-ready version (full paper, minimum 6
pages long, maximum 10 pages long) of all session papers reach the
Conference Organizers by the absolute deadline of Friday, 1 February
2013. Detailed instructions about the submission of the camera-ready
papers will follow in due course.
