[CfP] 1st Workshop on SociAL Semantic Analysis (SALSA 2016) co-located at ISWC2016

1st Workshop on SociAL Semantic Analysis (SALSA 2016)

Kobe, Japan, October 17th or 18th, 2016
Web site: http://events.kmi.open.ac.uk/salsa2016/

In conjunction with the 15th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC


The 1st Workshop on SociAL Semantic Analysis will bring together
researchers, practitioners and students to discuss the dual relationship
between the social and the semantic aspects of the Web. This is a rich,
timely field, covering a wide range of aspects, particularly: (i) how
semantic data and technologies can be exploited to better analyse, process
and understand the social aspects of the web and, (ii) how the social web
can be used to better shape, transform and create the semantic processes,
data and technologies of Web. Discussions are at the core of this workshop,
where we aim to bring an interdisciplinary audience to brainstorm and
debate about the current and future directions of the field.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:

* Bringing user-generated content into the Semantic Web
* Incentives, usage, and social processes around linked open data
* Semantics for open data generation, analysis, and exploitation
* Mining semantics from social data and community interactions
* Semantically enabled social platforms and applications: wikis, forums,
portals, blogs and microblogs, etc.
* Web users as virtual and physical sensors, crawlers, etc. for a
ubiquitous Social Semantic Web
* Semantic sentiment analysis on social media
* Semantics for personalisation: recommendations, social navigation,
collaborative search, social filtering, etc
* Social semantic networks, network effects, community analysis and user
* Querying, mining and analysis of user generated data and dynamics
* Big social semantic data: scalable processing techniques, trust and
compliance for social semantic data analysis
* Computational social science: understanding semantic dynamics in online
social networks, semantically enabled analysis of social behaviour,
semantic annotation of social datasets

Our main goal with this workshop is to foster active participation and
encourage discussions about the current and future directions in the field.
Therefore, our formula is focused on calling for extended abstracts rather
than calling for full or short paper presentations. Extended abstracts will
be translated into round table discussions at the day of the conference.

Paper submission and reviewing for this workshop will be electronic via
EasyChair ( https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=salsa2016).

Extended abstracts should be written in English (maximum 3 pages including
references), following the Springer LNCS format, and be submitted in PDF
before July 15, 2016.

Important Dates
Paper submission deadline: extended to 15th July 2016
Author notification: 31th July 2016
Final version deadline: 14th August 2016
Workshop date: to be announced (17-21 October 2016)
