Die zunehmende Bedeutung der Social Media (Synonym: Soziale Medien) macht sich auch in den Bibliotheken bemerkbar, für die es nun gilt, diese Entwicklung aktiv mitzugestalten oder von ihr mitgestaltet zu werden. Informationseinrichtungen wie Bibliotheken und Studiengänge der bibliothekarischen und informationswissenschaftlichen Bereiche sind aufgefordert, sich den neuen Herausforderungen zu stellen und adäquate Lösungen zu liefern. Dabei rückt der informations- und kommunikations-technologische sowie der betriebswirtschaftliche Anteil immer mehr in den Vordergrund. Aber auch die gesellschaftlichen, kulturellen, politischen und wirtschaftlichen Implikationen sind in die Lehre zu integrieren, um sich letztendlich in einer komplexen, krisengezeichneten Welt wie der unsrigen zurechtzufinden. Die folgenden Beiträge beschäftigen sich mit dem Potenzial Sozialer Medien und zeigen neben theoretischen Betrachtungen vor allem praktische Beispiele. (Quelle: Homepage des Verlags).

Social computing is concerned with the study of social behavior and social c- text based on computational systems. Behavioral modeling reproduces the social behavior, and allows for experimenting, scenario planning, and deep understa- ing of behavior, patterns, and potential outcomes. The pervasive use of computer and Internet technologies provides an unprecedented environment of various - cial activities. Social computing facilitates behavioral modeling in model building, analysis, pattern mining, and prediction. Numerous interdisciplinary and inter- pendent systems are created and used to represent the various social and physical systems for investigating the interactions between groups, communities, or nati- states. This requires joint efforts to take advantage of the state-of-the-art research from multiple disciplines, social computing, and behavioral modeling in order to document lessons learned and develop novel theories, experiments, and methodo- gies in terms of social, physical, psychological, and governmental mechanisms. The goal is to enable us to experiment, create, and recreate an operational environment with a better understanding of the contributions from each individual discipline, forging joint interdisciplinary efforts. This is the second international workshop on Social Computing, Behavioral ModelingandPrediction. The submissions were from Asia, Australia, Europe, and America. Since SBP09 is a single-track workshop, we could not accept all the good submissions. The accepted papers cover a wide range of interesting topics.
