What is SID2006 ?

SID 2006: Social Intelligence Design 2006
(March 24-26, 2006 @ Osaka)

Finished with huge success! Thank you very much for your participation!!

SID 2006 is the fifth International Workshop Series on Social Intelligence Design focused on the impact and 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. The central question is how SI is mediated through the use of emerging technologies.

We focus on three key factors in SID2006:

+Development, operation, and evaluation of support systems or tools for SID
+Observation and modeling of psychological and behavioral processes of e-community
+Social intelligence design by pilot program and computer-aided simulation.

We would like to emphasize the role of SID2006 as a junction between engineering researchers and social scientists and for both productive research activities and significant social contributions under a common goal for exploring SID in our real world. If engineering researchers and social scientists know needs and seeds of their research each other, there would emerge a new idea, which leads to novel "social intelligence" as unique research findings. So far at least engineering researchers have tended to look at only system or product design, whereas social scientists have tended to only look at mental or behavioral modeling for individual or interpersonal behavior mostly in lab experiment. Based on robust achievement of our these previous studies, now is the time to apply them to our real world and explore a new research development by measuring and analyzing actual social phenomenon.

He is a former president of Koshien University, a former president of the Japanese Society of Social Psychology, and a former president of the Society for Risk Analysis: Japan-Section. His main research fields are social psychology and risk science.

Dr. Hisao Nojima (Seijo University, Japan)
Cognitive Science at Home: From everyday things to our social world

Dr. Hisao Nojima was born in Urawa, Saitama Prefecture, Japan. He graduated from the University of Tokyo with an MA in Social Psychology in 1981 and a PhD in Information Science in 2003. From 1983 to 2005, he worked at NTT (Nippon Telegraph and Telephone) Basic Research Laboratories as a senior researcher. He is currently a professor in the Faculty of Social Innovation, Seijo University. His major interests include the cognitive and social aspects of expertise and personal memories.

This is the fifth workshop on the subject of social intelligence design. The papers accepted for this workshop will be collected and published on the SID2006 Web site. Selected papers will be considered for publication in a special Journal issue.

The first workshop SID2001, held in Matsue, Japan in 2001, in conjunction with the annual JSAI Conference. SID2001 established a forum for key themes in this area, such as, how new technologies mediate human communication and collaboration across geographical and cultural divides. The workshop papers can be viewed on the website. Selected papers from the first SID workshop of the Japanese Society of Artificial Intelligence were published in Lecture Notes on Artificial Intelligence LNAI 2253: "New Frontiers in Artificial Intelligence", edited by Terano, Nishida, Namatame, Tsumoto, Ohsawa, and Washio, Springer Verlag, December 2001.
