Social computing and cyber-physical systems can be broadly defined as computational facilitation of social systems and the integration of computation with physical processes. The tight combination and coordination between systems' computational, physical, and social elements make it different from other forms of systems. Social computing and cyber-physical systems have recently become a central theme across a number of information and communication fields and attracted significant interest of researchers from computer science, computer engineering, electronic engineering, etc.
Topics covered include
- Cyber-physical system architectures and infrastructures
- Cyber-physical system integration and coordination
- Cyber-physical system design methodology and tools
- Cyber-physical system engineering and component developments
- Social computing theories, system design and architectures
- Social network analysis/mining, behaviour modelling, semantic web
- Social computing in cyber-physical systems
- Integration of computing/physical/social components
- Security, privacy, trust, risk
- Novel applications, e.g.
- collaborative filtering, bookmaking, tagging, multi-agent systems
- sensor-based systems, autonomous automotive systems avionics,
- medical monitoring, process control systems, distributed robotics
- environmental science, etc.
IJSCCPS aims to establish an international forum for researchers and practitioners to publish scholarly articles and report various social computing and cyber-physical systems related issues.
The intended audience will include various academia, public and private sector members who are interested in and will benefit from social computing and cyber physical systems.
IJSCCPS publishes original papers, short papers, and review papers. Special Issues devoted to important topics in social computing and cyber-physical systems will occasionally be published.

Private targeted advertising

Is it plausible to develop targeted online marketing that does not impinge on the consumer's privacy? Of course, the dilemma is that in order to show putative customers advertisements that are likely to hit the mark rather than random enticements, the advertiser needs to know something about the putative customer's interests, tastes, personality, and other factors. Many see the acquisition of such information as worrying and there are now many places where gathering personal and private data would be in breach of local laws [...]More details...

Cybersquatting was rife in the early days of the World Web of the 1990s. An individual would register a domain name that was perhaps associated with an organisation or company and even a trademarked term. The cybersquatter might then use the domain for their own purposes whatever they might be or endeavour to sell the domain to the organisation. At first, it was unclear whether cybersquatting was illegal. Laws were tightened, domain registrars would take a dim view of such activity and commonly the domain would be handed over to what would appear to be the more legitimate owner. However, there are blurred lines when it comes to generic terms rather than company names or trademarks [...]More details...
