Theme: Exploring the Health and Societal Implications of Wearable and Social Media Technologies



Call for Papers


June 11-12, 2018, Scotland, UK


IEEE is the Technical Co-Sponsor (TCS) of the International Conference on Social Media, Wearable and Web Analytics (Social Media 2018), an international refereed conference dedicated to the advancement of social media, security of social media and consequential impacts and risks due to compromise or security breaches. It covers economic importance of social media, the emergence of wearable, wearable for fitness, e-health and life style improvements, and the use of web analytics for social media enhancements, business intelligence and business empowerment.


With the wave of phishing attacks against celebrities, high profile government officials, and nationals on social media, this conference is timely. Most importantly, we seek recommendations, solutions and advice on ways, methods and techniques for protecting our digital society.


The aim of the Social Media 2018 is to encourage participation and promotion of collaborative scientific, industrial and academic inter-workings among individual researchers, practitioners, members of existing associations, academia, standardisation bodies, and including government departments and agencies. The purpose is to build bridges between academia and industry, and to encourage interplay of different cultures.


Social Media 2018 invites researchers and industry practitioners to submit papers that encompass principles, analysis, design, methods and applications. All submitted papers are independently peer-reviewed.


The conference proceedings will be submitted for consideration for publishing and listing on the following bibliographic indexes: IEEE Computer Society Digital Library, IEEE Xplore Digital Library, DBLP Computer Science, Scopus, CiteSeerX, Computer Science Index, EI Compendex, Academic Search Complete, CiteULike, Google Scholar & Microsoft Academic Search.
