Computational Models of Collective Intelligence in the Social Web



Over the recent years, the ubiquitous use of computers and
the World Wide Web enabled people to participate and interact
with each other in numerous Web communities, including forums,
discussion groups, and social networks. Observing the
user-generated content resulting from such interactions offers
computer scientists unprecedented opportunities for studying
the collective intelligence of online communities. To date,
a considerable amount of research has been devoted to the social
Web, but the fundamental mechanisms that govern the dynamics of
online social interactions are yet to be understood.

We solicit submissions on the latest research in computational
models of collective intelligence in the social Web. Topics of
interest include, but are not limited to:

- Exploiting collective human intelligence in knowledge extraction 
  and modeling;
- Knowledge inference from user-generated content in social networks;
- Modeling user behavior (including learning behavioral patterns from 
  collective social media);
- Social behavior prediction;
- Computational models of social learning and social influence;
- Predictive social dynamics;
- Modeling complex social systems;
- Evolution models of social communities and social media;
- Large scale analysis of feedback and interaction logs;
- Opinion extraction and trend detection;
- Collaborative filtering in social networks.

Papers should be submitted through the Manuscript Central system
(to be available in April, 2010) at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/tist.
Please select "Special Issue: Computational Models of Collective 
Intelligence in the Social Web" as the manuscript type. Each paper will
be reviewed by at least three expert reviewers. Further details
on manuscript preparation as well as publication policies are
available on the ACM TIST Web site at http://tist.acm.org/authors.html.
