     Web Based Human Collective Intelligence
Web based communication is creating unprecedented opportunities for large scale knowledge aggregation, and new challenges for technologists and social scientists who are working to develop organisational systems and infrastructures.  The proliferation of easily accessible and intuitive web based social software tools and environments is enabling multitudes of people to connect, communicate and exchange information and knowledge in near real time, thus exploding the potential for 'collective intelligence 'to take place.  While a universally accepted model and definition of 'Collective intelligence', has not yet emerged, examples of web based collective intelligence,  can be found in different disciplines (from learning to economic development to governance), Although a few authoritative initiatives have been started in this direction, such as The Centre for Collective Intelligence at MIT, (http://cci.mit.edu), books and blogs are being written, CI still remains  undefined and elusive,  it is exposed to scepticism.

This track aims to promote a sound interdisciplinary framework for the field of CI, harnessing from different areas of research, grounded in the respective scientific theories, and capable of encompassing different perspectives: socio-political, technical, scientific.  We encourage inter- and multi- disciplinary approaches that cover more than one aspect of CI and encourage original and quality contributions as follows:

-    Domain definition of collective intelligence (what is CI?)
-    Evolution of CI - practices, case studies, work examples
-    Tools and techniques to support CI (programming and designing of collaboration)
-    Social and behavioural dynamics related to CI, within the context of IT
-    Impact of CI on advancement of interdisciplinary
-    Impact of CI on other disciplines
-    Impact of CI on all other human activities
-    CI Projects and results
-    CI risks and aberrations (cyber-mobbing, wisdom of the crowds transforming into mobs)
-    Theories and Scientific Methods pertaining CI
-    Knowledge aggregation
-    Expertise finding
