IMPORTANT NOTICE for all attendees:

Due to the internal problem in main conference venue (Knossos Royal Hotel) in Crete, orginizers of FutureTech 2011 decided to move a conference from Crete to Loutraki in Greece.
We are very sorry about that.

Here is an information for the new conference official hotel:

Name: Club Hotel Casino Loutraki
Address: 48 Posidonos Str., 20300 Loutraki, Greece
Tel: 302744060300, Fax: 02744060306

If any participants already bought the air ticket from any places to Crete island, we will make a compensation for the cancellation fee.
In that case, you need to show us how much cancellation fee have to pay.

We will not apply the "No-Show" policy to anyone who are not able to come to FutureTech 2011 if they have already bought the air ticket or not.

IMPORTANT NOTICE for attendees from Korea:

Now we are in the final step of negotiating with hotel and travel agency for special package rates including flight and hotel.
After the negotiation is finished, you will have several detail packages offered by travel agency soon.
Once again, we are very sorry for the late process.


Recently, social computing and networking has been driving dramatic evolution in the way people communicate and interact with each other, attracting great attention from the research community as well as the business world. Social computing not only includes Web 2.0 elements such as blogs, twitter, and wikis, etc, but also stands for a collection of the technologies that gather, process, compute, and visualize social information and the studies that model and analyze dynamics of participants in social networks.  

With the advent of the social computing era, SocialComNet-2011 aims at reporting the most recent progresses, trends, and concerns in this rapidly growing area. This workshop will provide a forum for participants from the computing and social science communities and publish state-of-art research papers. Furthermore, we expect that the workshop and its publications will trigger related research and technology innovation in this important subject.
