Topics/Call fo Papers

Social computing and networking is concerned with the intersection of social behaviour and computing systems, creating or recreating social conventions and contexts through the use of software and technology. Various social computing applications such as blogs, email, instant messaging, social networking (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+ etc.), wikis, and social bookmarking have been widely popularised by providing digital platforms for social interaction. Such applications have been profoundly change social behaviours and digital life styles of humankind whilst pushing the boundaries of Internet technologies. While people can enjoy or even indulge in the benefits such as freedom and convenience brought about by social computing, various critical issues such as trust, privacy, HCI design, and the modelling as well as understanding of social behaviours via computational means provide significant challenges.
SocialCom (Social Computing and Networking) was created to provide a prime international forum for researchers, industry practitioners and domain experts to exchange the latest fundamental advances in the state of the art and practice of Social Computing & Networking and its broadly related areas. SocialCom-2020 is evolved as next premier event from previous highly successful series of SocialCom-2019 (China), SocialCom-2018 (Australia), SocialCom-2017 (Italy), SocialCom-2016 (Atlanta, USA), SocialCom-2015 (Chengdu, China), SCA-2013 (Karlsruhe Germany), SCA-2012 (Xiangtan China), SCA-2011 (Sydney, Australia), SocialNet-2010 (Social Computing and Networking, Hangzhou, China), SocialNet-2009(Social Computing and Networking, Chengdu China), SIN-2009 (Social Intelligence and Networking, Vancouver Canada).
SocialCom-2020 will be hosted in Exeter, the capital city of Devon and provides the county with a central base for education, medicine, religion, commerce and culture. The city is also home to the magnificent Exeter Cathedral, which dates back to Norman times. Exeter is also ideally placed to base a trip to branch out visiting places such as the famous Dartmoor National Park and the unspoilt beaches of the North and South Devon coastlines.
Prospective authors are invited to submit their papers to SocialCom-2020. All accepted papers are expected to be included in IEEE Xplore and will be indexed by Engineering Index (EI). The authors of selected best papers will be invited post conference to extend their contributions for special issues of prestigious journals to be planned in conjunction with the conference.
