Social Mobile Web Workshop (SMW-11)

(9:00-5:00) Room 1 Third Floor CPA

The mobile space is evolving at an astonishing rate with almost 5 billion subscribers in existence. The world is also witnessing an explosion in social web services with more users seeking novel ways of interacting with friends and family. We are interested in the combination of these two exciting research spaces: the social web and the mobile web. We believe that the social mobile web is going to be a highly influential research area in the near future and given the huge growth that both these fields have experienced in recent times we feel that now is an excellent time to discuss this nascent research space.



The Future of the Social Web (FOSW-11)

(8:00-5:00) Room 2 Imagina Auditorium

The aim of this workshop is to encourage discussion and sharing of ideas and highly innovative research results that focus on the future of the social web. We aim to promote interdisciplinary research and exchange of ideas in this area, not only between industry and academia, but also between different fields (e.g., computer science, mathematics, physics, psychology, sociology, cultural anthropology, etc.). In particular, we would like to discuss what the future of the web might be in light of the recent wave of social media technologies and services: there is little doubt that the web is being fundamentally transformed by social media, both in terms of how content is created and shared, and also in terms of how business and society are embracing social media.



Social Innovation and Social Media (SISOM-11)

(8:00-12:00) Room 3 Third Floor Office Tower

The objective of the workshop is to debate how the full potential of social media can be harnessed to support large-scale and time-efficient social innovations. The workshop will explore two dimensions along which research might help social innovation to take place at a larger scale: (1) The design of new social media tools offering better support for more sophisticated interactions; (2) The conceptual and computational development of new frameworks for public policy modeling and implementation to help public authorities to harness the full potential of social media and social innovation.
