Social computing and networking is concerned with the intersection of social behaviour and computing systems, creating or recreating social conventions and contexts through the use of software and technology. Various social computing applications such as blogs, email, instant messaging, social networking (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+ etc.), wikis, and social bookmarking have been widely popularised by providing digital platforms for social interaction. Such applications have been profoundly change social behaviours and digital life styles of humankind whilst pushing the boundaries of Internet technologies. While people can enjoy or even indulge in the benefits such as freedom and convenience brought about by social computing, various critical issues such as trust, privacy, HCI design, and the modelling as well as understanding of social behaviours via computational means provide significant challenges.
SocialCom (Social Computing and Networking) was created to provide a prime international forum for researchers, industry practitioners and domain experts to exchange the latest fundamental advances in the state of the art and practice of Social Computing & Networking and its broadly related areas. SocialCom 2021 is evolved as next premier event from previous highly successful series of SocialCom-2020 (UK), SocialCom-2019 (China), SocialCom-2018 (Australia), SocialCom-2017 (Italy), SocialCom-2016 (Atlanta, USA), SocialCom-2015 (Chengdu, China), SCA-2013 (Karlsruhe Germany), SCA-2012 (Xiangtan China), SCA-2011 (Sydney, Australia), SocialNet-2010 (Social Computing and Networking, Hangzhou, China), SocialNet-2009(Social Computing and Networking, Chengdu China), SIN-2009 (Social Intelligence and Networking, Vancouver Canada).
Prospective authors are invited to submit their papers to SocialCom 2021. The conference proceedings will be submitted to IEEE Xplore. The authors of selected best papers will be invited post conference to extend their contributions for special issues of prestigious journals to be planned in conjunction with the conference.
Topics of particular interest include, but are not limited to:
- Track 1: Social Computing and Applications
- Track 2: Social Science and Computational Intelligence
- Track 3: Social Networking and Social Media
- Track 4: Human-centered Computing and Systems
Submissions should include abstract, 5-10 keywords, and the e-mail address of the corresponding author and be in PDF format. Each submission should be in the IEEE 8.5 x 11 inches two-column format with 10-12 point font (Template: DOC or LaTeX), including tables, figures, and references.

IEEE Computer Society Open Conference Statement
Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion are central to the goals of the IEEE Computer Society and all of its conferences. Equity at its heart is about removing barriers, biases, and obstacles that impede equal access and opportunity to succeed. Diversity is fundamentally about valuing human differences and recognizing diverse talents. Inclusion is the active engagement of Diversity and Equity.
A goal of the IEEE Computer Society is to foster an environment in which all individuals are entitled to participate in any IEEE Computer Society activity free of discrimination. For this reason, the IEEE Computer Society is firmly committed to team compositions in all sponsored activities, including but not limited to, technical committees, steering committees, conference organizations, standards committees, and ad hoc committees that display Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion.
IEEE Computer Society meetings, conferences and workshops must provide a welcoming, open and safe environment, that embraces the value of every person, regardless of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, marital status, religion, national origin, ancestry, or disability. All individuals are entitled to participate in any IEEE Computer Society activity free of discrimination, including harassment based on any of the above factors.
IEEE Event Conduct and Safety Statement
IEEE believes that science, technology, and engineering are fundamental human activities, for which openness, international collaboration, and the free flow of talent and ideas are essential. Its meetings, conferences, and other events seek to enable engaging, thought provoking conversations that support IEEE’s core mission of advancing technology for humanity. Accordingly, IEEE is committed to providing a safe, productive, and welcoming environment to all participants, including staff and vendors, at IEEE-related events.
IEEE has no tolerance for discrimination, harassment, or bullying in any form at IEEE- related events. All participants have the right to pursue shared interests without
harassment or discrimination in an environment that supports diversity and inclusion. Participants are expected to adhere to these principles and respect the rights of others.
IEEE seeks to provide a secure environment at its events. Participants should report any behavior inconsistent with the principles outlined here, to on site staff, security or venue personnel, or to firstname.lastname@example.org.
