SID 2004

Social Intelligence Design 2004

July 5-7, 2004

University of Twente, Enschede, the Netherlands


SID 2004 is the third workshop on the subject of social intelligence design focused on the significance of information technology in our lives , work, home, and on the move. In this workshop we consider Social Intelligence (SI) as the ability for people to relate to, understand and interact effectively with others. Our particular concern is how SI is mediated through the use of new technologies.

Main Themes of SID-2004:

  1. Natural Interactions - covering theory, modelling and analytical frameworks that have been developed with Social Intelligence Design in mind, including situated computation, embodied conversational agents, sociable artifacts, socially intelligent robots.
  2. Communities - covering community media, communication patterns in online communities, knowledge-creating, network and anonymous communities.
  3. Collaboration Technologies and tools - covering innovations to support interactions within communities, covering a range from knowledge sharing systems, multi-agent systems and interactive systems.
  4. Application Domains - including design, workspaces, education, e-commerce, entertainment, digital democracy, digital cities, policy and business.

Intended Participants:

This workshop is intended for all who are concerned with the impact of advanced information and communication technologies on social intelligence, in particular, researchers, developers and designers of new ways of communicating enabled and supported by such technologies. The contributions will be published in the workshop proceedings.

This is the third workshop on the subject of social intelligence design focused on the significance of information technology in our lives, work, home, and on the move. The papers accepted for this workshop will be collected in proceedings that will be available during the workshop.

The first workshop, held in Matsue, Japan in 2001, opened up key themes in this area, namely, how new technologies mediate human communication and collaboration across geographical and cultural divides. The post workshop proceedings edited by Takao Terano, Toyoaki Nishida, Akira Namatame, Yukio Ohsawa, Shusaku Tsumoto, and Takashi Washio can be viewed on http://mailer.kc.t.u-tokyo.ac.jp/synsophy/sid2001. Selected papers from the first SID workshop of the Japanese Society of Artificial Intelligence were published in Lecture Notes on Artificial Intelligence LNAI 2253, Springer Verlag, December 2001.

The second workshop was held in Egham, United Kingdom in 2003. For information visit the workshop's website: http://www.rhul.ac.uk/Management/News-and-Events/conferences/SID2003.

The workshop identified the following two main themes:

  • The ability of a collection of actors/agents to learn and solve as a function of social structure;
  • The ability of an actor/agent to manage relationships with other actors/agents that act intelligently in a society.

These themes have been elaborated in the four SID 2004 workshop themes mentioned above.
