SID 2007

The 6th International Workshop on Social Intelligence Design

Trento, Italy July 2-4, 2007

http://hmi.ewi.utwente.nl/sid07/ <http://hmi.ewi.utwente.nl/sid07/> 



SID 2007 is the sixth workshop on the subject of social intelligence
design focused on the impact and significance of information technology
in our lives, work, home, and on the move. In this workshop we consider
Social Intelligence (SI) as the necessary ability for people to relate
to, understand and interact effectively with others. The central
question is how SI is mediated through the use of emerging technologies.




We will focus on three key factors in SID 2007:

* Development, operation, and evaluation of support systems or tools for
SID; this includes support systems and tools both for mediated remote
interacton and support for face-to-face interaction;

* Observation and modeling of psychological and behavioral processes
with the aim of obtaining computational models of behavior and

* Social intelligence implemented in interfaces, embodied agents,
storytelling environments, (serious) gaming and simulation.


We emphasize the role of SID 2007 as a meeting place for engineering
researchers and social scientists and for both productive research
activities and significant social contributions under a common goal of
exploring SI in our real world. If engineering researchers and social
scientists know the needs and seeds of each other's research, new ideas
will emerge which will lead to unique research findings.




Topics of the workshop include:

* Natural Interactions: covering theory, modeling and analytical
frameworks that have been developed with Social Intelligence Design in
mind, including situated computation, embodied conversational agents,
sociable artifacts, and socially intelligent robots.

* Communities: covering community media, communication patterns in
online communities, knowledge-creating, network and anonymous

* Collaboration Technologies and Tools: covering innovations to support
interactions within communities, covering a range from knowledge sharing
systems, multi-agent systems and interactive systems.

* Application Domains - including design, workspaces, education,
e-commerce, entertainment, digital democracy, digital cities, policy and



Intended Participants


This workshop is intended for all who are concerned with the impact of
advanced information and communication technologies on social
intelligence, in particular, researchers, developers and designers of
new ways of communicating enabled and supported by such technologies.

The contributions will be published in the workshop proceedings and a
selection of the papers will appear in a special issue of a journal.

Selected papers will be considered for publication in a special Journal
issue as has been done with previous SID workshops (SID 2003, 2004, 2005
and 2006). Visit http://www.ii.ist.i.kyoto-u.ac.jp/sid/ for details

Previous workshops


SID 2001:

The first workshop SID 2001
(http://www.ii.ist.i.kyoto-u.ac.jp/sid/sid2001/), was held in Matsue,
Japan in 2001, in conjunction with the annual JSAI (Japanese Society of
Artificial Intelligence) Conference. SID 2001 established a forum for
key themes in this area, such as, how new technologies mediate human
communication and collaboration across geographical and cultural
divides. Selected papers from the workshop were published in Lecture
Notes on Artificial Intelligence LNAI 2253: "New Frontiers in Artificial
Intelligence", edited by Takao Terano, Toyoaki Nishida, Akira Namatame,
Yukio Ohsawa, Shusaku Tsumoto, and Takashi Washio, Springer Verlag,
December 2001.


SID 2003:

SID 2003
was held at the Royal Holloway University of London, United Kingdom in
2003. Selected papers were revised and published in a special issue of
the AI & Society Journal, Volume 19, Number 1, January 2005, edited by
Renate Fruchter, Duska Rosenberg, and Toyoaki Nishida.


SID 2004:

SID 2004 (http://hmi.ewi.utwente.nl/Conferences/sid04/sid04.html) was
organized under the auspices of the Centre of Telematics and Information
Technology (CTIT) of the University of Twente, the Netherlands, by the
Human Media Interaction group of the CTIT. Selected papers were revised
and published in a special issue of the AI & Society Journal, Volume 20,
Number 2, March 2006, edited by Anton Nijholt and Toyoaki Nishida.


SID 2005 and SID 2006:

SID 2005 ( http://pbl.stanford.edu/News/SID2005.html) and SID 2006

(http://www.team1mile.com/asarin/sid2006/) were held in Stanford and
Osaka, respectively. For both workshops papers were selected and
refereed for two special issues of the AI & Society Journal that will
appear in 2007.
