Call for Papers

Workshop on Social Media Visualization (SocMedVis)
at the International AAAI Conference on Weblogs and Social Media (ICWSM'12)

4th June 2012, Dublin, Ireland


Social media study and analysis brings researchers from many fields into a
single setting. Even though the tasks of these researchers are varied, data
visualization and analytics plays an important role. For industry and
academics alike, visualization of social media data helps with hypothesis
formation and supports the explanation of phenomena.

The Workshop on Social Media Visualization (SocMedVis) will be held in
conjunction with the International AAAI Conference on Weblogs and Social
Media (ICWSM'12) in Dublin on 4th June 2012. The workshop is a venue for
presentation of research and applications of visualization of social media

The goal of the workshop is to bring together researchers and industry
practitioners interested in visual and interactive techniques for social
media analysis to discuss their potential application to the social
sciences, humanities, and industry. We solicit contributions that discuss
novel techniques and applications of visualization and visual analytics
approaches to social media data sources.

humanities and industrial researchers of varied perspectives on the
application of visualization to academic disciplines and industry where
visualization is needed to understand social media data.
