Social Intelligence Design International Conference
Royal Holloway, University of London 6-8 July 2003

Conference website:

This is the second workshop on the subject of social intelligence design
focused on the significance of information technology in our lives, work,
home, and on the move. In this workshop we consider Social Intelligence
(SI) as the ability for people to relate to, understand and interact
effectively with others. Our particular concern is how SI is mediated
through the use of new technologies.

The workshop is organised around four main themes:

1. INTERACTIONS – with presentations covering theory, modelling and
analytical frameworks that have been developed with Social Intelligence
Design in mind.

2. COMMUNITIES covering topics community media, communication patterns in
online communities, knowledge-creating, network and anonymous communities.

3. COLLABORATION TECHNOLOGIES and tools – presenting innovations to support
interactions within communities, covering a range from knowledge sharing
systems, multi-agent systems, interactive systems, Embodied Conversational

4. APPLICATION DOMAINS – including architecture, education, policy and

Intended Participants:
This workshop is intended for all who are concerned with the impact of
advanced information and communication technologies on social intelligence,
in particular, researchers, developers and designers of new ways of
communicating enabled and supported by such technologies. The contributions
will be published in the workshop proceedings.
