Call for Papers: Special Issue on Social Learning




In recent years, the social Web has shown tremendous growth, as the

World Wide Web has transformed into a social platform for communication, information sharing and collaboration between Web users. Social learning is concerned with the principles, methodologies, techniques, tools, and applications of machine learning and knowledge discovery from/to social activities.


An important ingredient of the social Web is machine learning, which faces several new challenges in the social Web setting. First, the social Web allows users in different places to contribute the content at different times in an entirely decentralized fashion, resulting in multiple inconsistent and conflicting views on matters such as the different tags assigned to the same Web. Second, social Web data cover a vast number of heterogeneous entities and distinct feature representations. Finally, the social Web is a highly dynamic in nature. We call learning on the social Web ‘Social Learning’.


This IEEE Intelligent Systems special issue seeks articles related to all aspects of social learning. We solicit high-quality research papers on challenging research issues and state-of-the-art theories, techniques and applications. We invite submissions including, but not limited to, the following topics:


-         Learning about group formation and evolution

-         Social network analysis and mining

-         Group interaction and collaboration

-         Influence process and recognition

-         Trust and reputation

-         Opinion extraction and trend detection

-         Expertise modeling and matching

-         Multiple learner systems in social environment

-         Exploitation of unannotated social Web data

-         Ambiguity resolving on the social Web

-         Knowledge extraction and management from social Web

-         Use of the social Web data for different AI tasks

-         Click log mining and user modeling

-         Agent and Multi-agent system on the Web

-         Model and analysis complexity

-         Data collection and benchmarks

-         Metrics and evaluation

-         Personalization, security and privacy
