Call For Papers: ACM/Springer Personal and Ubiquitous Computing SI on Cross-Community Mining (PUC SI 2012)

*Special Issue of*

*ACM/Springer Journal of “Personal and Ubiquitous Computing (PUC)”*

*on Cross-Community Mining*

*Introduction
People now live in heterogeneous social communities within cyber-physical spaces – both online communities and social networks where digital content is exchanged, and ad hoc physical communities

that exploit opportunistic relationships between pairs of networked devices to exchange content.
These communities have distinct technical features which lead to distinct kinds of interaction – such as patterns of comments and likes in online communities and co-location in ad hoc communities, or issues of friendship, trust and influence in online communities and social popularity and movement patterns in ad hoc communities.
Rather than viewing online communities and ad hoc communities as competing, we see them as complementary and suggest that cross-community mining (CCM) can connect these two communities by revealing hidden knowledge about the interplay between different communities and patterns of social interaction within and between them.
This theme issue of Personal and Ubiquitous Computing provides the opportunity for researchers and product developers to review and discuss the state-of-the-art and trends of CCM techniques and applications. Papers on theoretical, practical, methodological issues in Cross-Community Mining are welcome.

*Topics may include (but are not limited to):

 Inclusive Design Issues related to CCM
 Forming Online Communities with Knowledge from Ad hoc Community
 Enhancing Communications in Ad hoc Community with Online Community Knowledge
 Knowledge Integration/Transfer among Communities
 Infrastructure Support for CCM
(managing heterogeneous/multi-dimensional data, seamlessly switch among distinct communities, etc.)
 Evaluation Metrics for CCM
