Welcome to SCI 2014

2nd International Workshop on Social and Community Intelligence

In Conjunction with PerCom'14

Budapest, Hungary,

March 28, 2014.


Social and community intelligence (SCI) [1] defines a new paradigm that aims at revealing the individual/group behaviors, social interactions, as well as community dynamics (e.g., city hot spots, traffic jams) by mining the digital traces left by people while interacting with cyber-physical spaces . The digital traces are generated mainly from three information sources: Internet and Web applications, wireless sensor networks, mobile/wearable devices. The scale and richness of the multimodal, mixed data sources present us an opportunity to compile the digital footprints into a comprehensive picture of individual¨s daily life facets, transform our understanding of our lives, organizations and societies, and enable completely innovative services in areas like human health, public safety, city resource management, environment monitoring, and transportation management. SCI shares many commons with several close related areas: social computing, reality mining, human-centric sensing, and urban computing. Different from these areas that generally rely on one of the data sources for information extraction, SCI explores the fusion/aggregation of the three information sources to infer intelligence at the social and community level, ranging from individual activities, group behaviours, and social interaction within a community, to dynamics of a whole community (e.g., hot spot detection).


Who should attend

This symposium aims to provide an international forum for the discussion of challenges in the fields of SCI, including theoretical studies, practical issues, emerging technologies and applications. The topics of interests include, but are not limited to, the followings:

- Mobile Social Networking
- Mobile Phone Sensing
- Opportunistic Social Networking
- Participatory Social Sensing
- Mobile Crowd Sensing
- Socially-Aware Computing
- Cross-Community Sensing and Mining
- Community Detection and Social Behavior Analysis
- Urban Sensing and Computing
- Infrastructure Support for SCI Systems
- Security, Trust, and Privacy Issues in SCI
- Data Aggregation and Association in SCI
- SCI Applications and Services


We invite authors interested in these topics to submit a camera ready paper of 4-6 pages using the IEEE PerCom Submission Template for Workshop Papers. Papers should address at least one theme from this symposium in the format of a work in progress, early result, or theoretical position paper. Please submit papers (as PDF files) through the EDAS submission system.


All accepted papers will be included in the IEEE Digital Library. Extended versions of selected best papers will be considered for publication in a special issue of ACM Transactions on Intelligent Systems and Technology.
