WORKSHOP THEME
 
In recent years the research area of social mobile and networking technologies has made rapid progress,
due to the increasing development of new mobile technologies and the widespread usage of the Internet
as a new platform for social interactions. 
Social applications of mobile and networking technologies serve groups of people in shared activities, 
in particular geographically dispersed groups who are collaborating on some task in a shared context. 
An important characteristic of those social applications is the continuous interaction between people 
and technology to achieve a common purpose. Again social applications tend to be large-scale and 
complex, involving difficult social and policy issues such as those related to privacy and security 
access. 
Mobile technologies are devoted to play an important role in many areas of social activities, most 
likely in those areas where the right data in the right time have mission-critical importance. 
Mobile technologies play an essential role in personalizing working and interaction contexts, and 
supporting experimentation and innovation. 
Social Networking technologies join friends, family members, co-workers and other social communities
together. These technologies are convergent, emerging from a variety of applications such as search 
engines and employee evaluation routines while running on equally diverse platforms from server 
clusters to wireless phone networks. 
The third generation of social networking technologies has hit the Web. This network serve increasingly 
significant social functions. Networking technologies have to face emerging problems of robustness, 
such as vulnerabilities to reliability and performance due to malicious attack. 
Workshop participants can extent their background on this area, exchange ideas with other researchers 
and propose new solutions.

 
OBJECTIVES 
The aim of the proposed workshop is to gather researchers, from academia and industry, and 
practitioners to discuss about new mobile and networking technologies, to identify challenging problems 
that appear in social applications of those technologies and to show results and experiences realized 
by researchers. The workshop will be organized in a way to stimulate interaction among the participants. 
Shorter position papers may be presented from researchers of all backgrounds, in particular 
social-mobile technologies, information networking, human-computer interaction, security and privacy.
