SocialCom 2009, August 29-31, Vancouver, CanadaSocial Computing can be broadly defined as computational facilitation of social studies and human social dynamics as well as design and use of information and communication technologies that consider social context. Social computing has recently become one of the central themes across a number of information and communication technology fields and attracted significant interest from not only researchers in computing and social sciences, but also software and online game vendors, web entrepreneurs, political analysts, digital government practitioners. The 2009 IEEE International Conference on Social Computing provides a key forum for researchers and industry practitioners to exchange information regarding advancements in the state of art and practice of social computing.SOCIALCOM
Social Semantic Bookmarking - PAKM - SlideShareSocial Semantic Bookmarking combines the positive aspects of
semantic annotation with those of social bookmarking and tagging while avoiding their respective drawbacks like the cumbersome maintenance of ontologies or the lacking semantic precision of tags. Social semantic bookmarking tools allow for the annotation of internet resources based on an
ontology and the integrated maintenance of the ontology by the same people that use it. We introduce Social Semantic Bookmarking and present the SOBOLEO application as an implementation of this paradigm.Valentin Zacharias

FOLKSONOMIES AND TAGGING: New developments in social bookmarkingWhat is the role of controlled vocabulary in a Web 2.0 world? Can we have the best of both worlds: balancing folksonomies and controlled vocabularies to help communities of users find and share information and resources most relevant to them?Sarah Hayman
Visualizing Social BookmarksSocial bookmarking tools are very popular nowadays. In most tools, users tag the bookmarks to describe them. Therefore, it is often hard for users to discover implicit structures between tags, users and bookmarks. We think that this is essential for both end users to discover new bookmarks that could be of interest to them, and for researchers who want to study how people use social information retrieval tools. In this work, a cluster map visualization application is customized to enable users to explore social bookmarks in the del.icio.us system. The design of the application aims to automatically identify tag and community structures, and visualizes these structures in order to increase the users' awareness of them.Joris Klerkx & Erik Duval
