Call for papers

International Conference on Social Media, Wearable and Web Analytics (Social Media 2021), an international refereed conference, is 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 2021 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, including government departments and agencies. The purpose is to build bridges between academia and industry, and to encourage interplay of different cultures.

Social Media 2021 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 is open to the public, so you can attend the event without presenting a paper. Registration for both authors and attendees (without presenting a paper) opens in March 2021. You are welcome!

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, and
  • Others – e.g. Scopus, CiteSeerX, Computer Science Index, EI Compendex, Academic Search Complete, CiteULike, Google Scholar & Microsoft Academic Search.

The organisers will accept registration of up to 5 IEEE UK&I Student and YP Members at 75% discounted rate, and will offer up to 20% registration discounts for all IEEE, BCS, IET & IISP members.


Social Media 2021 is co-located alongside Cyber Situational Awareness 2021Cyber Incident 2021 and Cyber Security 2021 as part of Cyber Science 2021.
