The IEEE Systems, Man and Cybernetics (SMC) Society’s Technical Committee on Social Computing and Social Intelligence (TC-SCSI) is formed with the goal of providing a forum and dissemination mechanism for the interplay between ICT and social discipline and to present social factors as tools for novel engineering paradigms. The technical committee strives to maintain SMC’s leadership position in the research of artificial systems and design, providing strategic support to SMC members active in social movement organization and complex system research, and serves as a link between members of the TC-SCSI and other technical committees within the IEEE SMC Society.
The mission of the TC-SCSI is to provide an entity within the IEEE for social computing and social intelligence researchers, engineers and practitioners interested to promote SCSI as a research domain. The TC-SCSI shall support organization of conferences, special sessions, special journal issues, learning materials, best practices, tutorials, sessions, webinars, and other educational resources related to social computing and social intelligence. The TC-SCSI shall be involved in international standardization efforts and be a source of professional knowledge on state-of-the-art best practices and trends in social computing and social intelligence, with the objective of becoming a center of excellence in social computing and social intelligence and related concerns. Furthermore our goal is to stimulate growth of this specific TC within the SMCS in order to get more members interested in the activities and to benefit from IEEE membership.
The TC provides a platform for networking of researchers and professionals in the field of social computing and social intelligence and welcomes anyone interested to join. The networking activities will be supported by joint organization of special sessions at conferences sponsored by the SMC Society, joint collaborations on scientific papers and by seeking for opportunities to collaborate on common projects. To join, please contact the TC Chairs.
