[InetBib] CFP: SocInfo 22 - Social Computing for the Multiverse (Deadline June 20)

(Apologies for cross-posting)

Hi there!

I’d like to invite you to submit your work to SocInfo 2022.

International Conference on Social Informatics (SocInfo2022)
19 - 21 October 2022
Glasgow, UK
The 13th International Conference on Social Informatics, 19-21 October, 2022 
organised by the University of Glasgow's Adam Smith Business School and School 
of Computing Science.
The SocInfo 2022 theme: Social Computing for the Multiverse invites reimagining 
the scholarship in computational social science to do with the building, using, 
and studying of systems that facilitate communities across multiple modalities, 
with different and exciting affordances for inter-personal and inter-group 
interactions. The call offers a chance to reflect on the benefits of "living" 
in a multiverse, networked society, and regard both the real and perceived 
benefits of these interactive modalities on social, civic, and political life.

We believe this theme is especially pertinent given the increasing importance 
of online social networks in the years of a pandemic, which necessitated a 
physically remote workplace, while online social networks further evolved to 
become online schools and workplaces. While much of recent research has focused 
on online isolation, polarization, and echo chambers, we identify a scholarly 
need to reflect on the implications which multimodal communication may have on 
the health and quality of real and imagined online communities. Furthermore, we 
have an eye on the rising feasibility of virtual and augmented, multimodal 
social networks that are extending to applications beyond gameplay, and are 
likely to offer social, networked, and immersive environments that allow 
embodied interaction, communication, and collaboration.

We therefore invite research, reflection, and critique of the “Social Computing 
for the Multiverse” theme, as well as questions addressing (but not limited to) 
the following topics of interest.


Important Dates
* Submission deadline: 20 June 2022
* Notification of acceptance: 1 August 2022
* Camera-ready: 14 August 2022

About SocInfo2022
The International Conference on Social Informatics (SocInfo2022) is an 
interdisciplinary venue that brings together researchers from the computational 
and social sciences to help fill the gap between the two communities. The goal 
of the conference is to provide a forum to help practitioners from the two 
disciplines define common research objectives and explore methodologies. The 
organizers welcome a broad range of contributions, from those that apply 
methods from the social sciences to the study of socio-technical systems, to 
the application of computational methods to the study of complex social 
processes and the use of social concepts in the design of information systems.

SocInfo2022 offers an opportunity for the dissemination of knowledge between 
the two communities by soliciting presentations of original research papers and 
experience-based case studies in computer science, sociology, psychology, 
political science, anthropology, economics, linguistics, artificial 
intelligence, social network analysis, and other disciplines that can shed 
light on the open questions in the growing field of computational social 

SocInfo2022 will also offer keynote talks and invited talks that will be 
tailored to enhance the collaboration between the two research cultures in an 
era when social interactions are ubiquitous and span offline, online and 
augmented reality worlds.

Full list of topics of interest is available in the website.

Submission, Paper Formatting, Length, Double-blind Reviewing, and Anonymization
Original manuscripts should be submitted in English in pdf format through 
Easychair. All the deadlines are at 23:59:59 Anywhere on Earth Time.

We solicit submission of three types of contribution:
Full papers: should not exceed 12 pages (excluding references and any 
appendix), to be presented orally;
Short papers: should not exceed 6 pages (excluding references and any 
appendix), to be presented orally;
Abstracts: should be 1 page (excluding references), to be presented as posters;

Submissions will be reviewed through a double-blind review process (names of 
the authors invisible). To ensure a thorough and fair review process, this 
year’s conference will rely on a two-tier review process and we will enforce 
strict review guidelines to provide even higher-quality feedback to authors. To 
further incentivize useful and detailed feedback to authors, contributions of 
best reviewers will be rewarded with special mentions.

Because SocInfo will publish proceedings, manuscripts should be formatted 
according to Springer LNCS paper formatting guidelines. Please ensure that you 
have anonymized the pdf file for your submission by removing all author names 
and affiliations and any other information in the manuscript which can be used 
to identify the author(s).

Proceedings, and Special Issues
As in previous years, accepted papers will appear in Springer's Lecture Note 
Series in Computer Science. We will also allow accepted papers to be presented 
without publication in the conference proceedings if the authors choose to do 
so. Some of the full paper submissions may be accepted as short papers after 
review by the Program Committee. A small set of particularly high quality and 
important papers will be selected for journal publication.
