IEEE Computer: The Social Multimedia Experience

posted Apr 14, 2014, 8:38 AM by Christian Timmerer
As of 2014, I'm taking over the IEEE Computer Social Computing column from John Riedl, who, sadly, passed away last year. The Social Computing column aims to explore the latest developments within the field from the point of view of both researchers and practitioners.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • social networking services, applications, and tools;
  • social search;
  • social multimedia and social communications;
  • mobile social networks;
  • social network analysis and visualization;
  • standardization trends and federated social Web initiatives;
  • social computing business models; and
  • societal aspects such as privacy and data protection.
Interested readers who wish to contribute to this column should contact me directly at

The March 2014 issue is about the social multimedia experience. Inter-destination multimedia synchronization and quality of experience are critical to the success of social TV, which integrates television viewing with social networking. Subscribers can access the full column here.
