Second Call for Papers: Workshop on Social Media Processing (SocMP)

Held in Conjunction with ACM HPDC'12, Delft, the Netherlands, June 18/19, 2012.

Workshop Theme

User-generated social media such as blogs, podcasts, shared photos and
videos, wikis, online gaming communities and online social networks have
grown to over half a billion users today. To exploit the massive amount
of social data exposed by such systems requires not only social network
analysis, but also large-scale image processing, video encoding, generic
information retrieval and management, knowledge mining and discovery,
building and matching user profiles for web advertising, etc. Processing
information about a world-wide, loosely-connected network of social
media users poses a diverse set of challenges, ranging from traditional
high-performance distributed computing topics (e.g., scalability,
elasticity, reliability) to domain-specific processing (e.g., methods
for big data analytics and graph mining at scale.)

The First Workshop on Social Media Processing (SocMP'12) solicits papers
that address the data management and processing challenges raised by
running and mining large-scale social media platforms from a systems and
infrastructure-oriented perspective. The workshop will be co-located
with ACM/IEEE HPDC [ ] and will take place in
June 2012 in Delft, The Netherlands. SocMP'12 will bring together
researchers and practitioners in discussing and creating new knowledge
about the social media infrastructure and methods of the future.

Topics of Interest
The topics of interest for SocMP'12 include, but are not limited to:

* Techniques for the collection of social media data;
* System architectures for social media processing;
* Methods for Social Media pre-processing and processing;
* System architectures and methods for online or near-realtime social
  media processing;
* Methods for multi-source social media processing;
* Mechanisms that support specific data consistency models across
  multiple data centers;
* Business logic and programming models for social media processing
* Autonomic management of social media processing systems;
* Green computing and sustainability in social media processing systems;
* Economic aspects of social media processing systems, in particular for
  third-party data processing;
* Benchmarks, workload characterization and modeling, and testbeds for
  designing and analyzing social media processing systems;
* Use cases, applications of social media processing (i.e., to science,
  engineering, and business), and experience with deployed artifacts
  focusing on the infrastructure;
* Mathematical and analytical tools for designing and analyzing social
  media processing systems;
* Simulation methods and tools for designing and analyzing social media
  processing systems.

Author Guidelines

Authors are invited to submit technical papers of at most 6 pages in PDF
format, including figures, tables, and references. Papers should be
formatted in the ACM Proceedings Style [ ] and
submitted via the dedicated EasyChair-based web site [ ].

All papers will receive at least three reviews. Accepted workshop papers
will appear in the HPDC conference proceedings and will be incorporated
in the ACM Digital Library.

Submitted papers must be original work that has not appeared in and is
not under consideration for another conference or journal. For more
details, see the ACM Prior Publication Policy [ ].
