COLLIN2011 - 2nd Symposium on Collective Intelligence

June 14, 2011, Hyatt Regency, Jeju Island, South-Korea

Note: COLLIN has been integrated as a track in SDPS 2011

Collective intelligence describes the mechanisms that enable the crowd of customers to design products, to choose the portfolio of products, and to influence marketing. Collective Intelligence has seen a surge during the last years through the emergence of new information technology, allowing a large number of people that are not required to be geographically close, to be reached. Besides, it also offers many possibilities for learning and communication for the society as a whole as well as for individuals. Collective behavior offers a high potential for value creation in different areas. The business world can use collective intelligence to develop innovative products or to create new business models. Moreover, research can benefit from collective intelligence. Collective behavior can support the creation of knowledge as well as the discovery of creative solutions.

However, the potential of collective behavior and collective intelligence in the context of value creation is widely unexplored. To harness this potential, it is important to understand the basic concepts, features and mechanism of collective intelligence based on interdisciplinary research. The results of these investigations would be used to build systems, fostering collective Intelligence.

Since collective intelligence requires interdisciplinary expertise, the COLLIN focuses on different research areas, ranging from economics, informatics, psychology to sociology. This symposium is understood as a platform for sharing ideas and information between scientists and also between scientists and practitioners. This second symposium on collective intelligence will take place from June 9 to June 10, 2011 at Seoul National University, Seoul, South Korea. We kindly invite authors from either a theoretical or practical background to submit papers. The papers have to be submitted in English. The papers will be peer-reviewed in a double-blind process.
