The 5th International Conference on Social Informatics
Kyoto, Japan, 25/11/2013–27/11/2013

The International Conference on Social Informatics (SocInfo 2013) is an interdisciplinary venue for researchers from Computer Science, Informatics, Social Sciences and Management Sciences to share ideas and opinions, and present original research work on studying the interplay between socially-centric platforms and social phenomena. The ultimate goal of Social Informatics is to create better understanding of socially-centric platforms not just as a technology, but also as a set of social phenomena. To that end, we are inviting interdisciplinary papers, on applying information technology in the study of social phenomena, on applying social concepts in the design of information systems, on applying methods from the social sciences in the study of social computing and information systems, on applying computational algorithms to facilitate the study of social systems and human social dynamics, and on designing information and communication technologies that consider social context.

This year SocInfo 2013 will be co-located with WebDB Forum 2013 (in Japanese). WebDB Forum 2013 is a Japanese domestic forum that covers a wide range of areas regarding database and Web, and usually attracts about 300-400 participants from industry, government, and academia.
