Workshop on Social Media Visualization (SocMedVis)
Clique is co-organizing a Workshop on Social Media Visualization (SocMedVis) at the International AAAI Conference on Weblogs and Social Media (ICWSM'12) at Trinity College Dublin on 4th June 2012. It is a full day workshop. For more details see the website and the call for papers.
Social media study and analysis brings researchers from many fields into a single setting. Even though the tasks of these researchers are varied, data visualization and analytics plays an important role. For industry and academics alike, visualization of social media data helps with hypothesis formation and supports the explanation of phenomena. The SocMedVis Workshop provides a venue to discuss how we can apply data visualization and analytic techniques to social media data.
The workshop caters to designers and consumers of interactive visualization methods to better understand the applications of these techniques to social media data for the purposes of analysis and entertainment. The workshop is open to both novel visualization techniques and applications of visualization techniques to social media data sources. We strongly encourage interdisciplinary contributions that discuss the application of visualization to social media research and how these techniques can better support user tasks in other domains.
