With the Internet rapidly taking on the role of a global marketplace for the
exchange of ideas, experiences and knowledge, an interesting research area
has emerged: social computing. Social computing lies at the intersection of
social behavior and computing systems. It focuses on the use of technology
to create social conventions and contexts, as well as the new relationships
and power structures that result. Three widely-agreed tenets of social
computing are (i) the shift of innovation from a top-down to a bottom-up
model; (ii) the shift of value from ownership to experiences; and (iii) the
shift of power from institutions to communities.

Social computing (also known as Web 2.0 and social media) has drawn much
interest in academia, the information technology industry and among Internet
users. This track at ITNG 2012 will serve as a platform for those
researching this area. Submissions may include research, system, evaluation,
policy and position papers. Topics include, but are not limited to:
* Use of information communication technologies for social computing
* Mobile social computing
* Infrastructure and architectures for social computing
* Online communities and social networking
* Social tagging and collaborative information organization
* Information retrieval and sharing techniques
* Usability and user needs
* Applications and case studies in social computing
* Novel applications supporting user-generated content and social
* Social, institutional and policy issues in social computing
* Social computing in schools, enterprises and other organizations
* Collaboration and social computing
* Social computing trends and issues

Proceedings will be published by the Conference Publishing Services and
indexed in major databases. Electronic submission in PDF or MS Word format
are required. Papers must represent high quality and previously unpublished

When submitting papers via the online submission system, remember to
indicate that the paper is meant for the “Social Computing” track. This
option is found in the “Submission Categories” section in the system. If
using the online submission system is somehow not possible, please email the
track co-chairs for assistance.

Papers will be evaluated for originality, significance, clarity, and
