Hi all,

Based on the success of MSM 2010 which was held in Hypertext 2010 in 
Toronto, Canada (http://kmi.tugraz.at/workshop/MSM10/), please consider 
submitting to MSM 2011, the 2nd International Workshop on Modeling 
Social Media (co-located with IEEE SocialCom 2011).

Call for papers is below:


Continuing the success of MSM 2010, we would like to address the user 
interface aspects of modeling social media. Much, if not all, 
interaction is done through some sort of user interface, however how to 
model social media through the user interface has still not been 
standardized. For example, people interact with their Facebook friends 
through the Facebook interface or perhaps another SNS interface like 
Seesmic. How do we model this user interface, and can this model be 
replicated to other social media and other form factors like new 
pad-based devices like the Apple iPad and to more recent high 
graphics-oriented smartphones like the Apple iPhone 4?
The goal of this workshop is to continue our vibrant discussion on 
modeling social media, focusing on the user interface modeling.
The workshop aims to attract and discuss various aspects of user 
interface modeling in social media using a wide range of modeling 
perspectives (such as justificative, explanative, descriptive, 
formative, predictive, etc models) and approaches (statistical modeling, 
conceptual modeling, temporal modeling, etc).
We want to bring together social networking researchers and user 
interface designers and practitioners with diverse backgrounds 
interested in 1) exploring different perspectives and approaches to 
modeling complex social media phenomena and systems through the user 
interface, 2) the different purposes and applications that models of 
social media can serve, and 3) issues of integrating and validating user 
interfaces in social media systems.
Topics of Interest
Topics may include, but are not limited to:

     * New modeling techniques and approaches for user interfaces in 
social media
     * Application design for user interfaces of social media (phone, 
pad-based, PC, web)
     * modeling social media users and their motivations and goals
     * Modeling user behaviour in social media
     * User-centered design for social media
     * Models of user cooperation and collaboration in social media
     * Trust and user-acceptance of social media
     * Integrating user interface design with social media
     * Testing user interface models and social media applications
     * Usability in social media interfaces (is usability not much of a 
concern since connectivity is more important?)

We also encourage submissions which relate research results from other 
areas to the workshop topics.
