First IEEE/ACM Workshop on the application of Social Networking concepts to Cluster, Cloud, Grid and Services Computing. (SN4CCGridS)
Social Networking has profoundly affected the way that people communicate and interact. Websites such as Facebook, Xing and LinkedIn enable us to interact digitally, and as such electronic relationships are quickly beginning to become as important as their real world counterparts. The app and as-a-service phenomena are only just beginning to embrace and exploit the fabrics of digital relationships, a means that has been used in advertising now for some time. The social science and information science domains also have a keen interest in social networking and in ad hoc sharing, and it is useful to extend this multidisciplinary intersection to consider the networks of people, shared artefacts and services that are seen in e-Science applications. The social science studies of these applications, as well as the use of a cloud and services approach to conduct social science studies, are important examples of "e-Social Science".
The adoption of Social Networking constructs for new forms of digital collaboration is a new and exciting domain, which as yet has no single stream-lined community. Typically, workshops with the theme of social networks are orientated towards the theoretical aspects of social networks, for example how they are built, mined, modelled, visualised, how social graphs are traversed, privacy issues, supporting infrastructure etc. Instead, this workshop is aimed at bringing together novel research that is focused on the emerging area of how social networks can be used and harnessed in and with the domains of cluster, grid and cloud computing as well as for services computing. This workshop is focused on, but not limited to, the application of social networking models in distributed services and content, the use of cluster, cloud, grid or services computing in the creation of social networks and their applications, and the development and use of distributed computing models within social networks.
Scope of Workshop:
The topics of interest are, but not limited to, the adoption of social networks to cluster, grid, cloud and services computing for:
- novel applications of digital relationships
- discover providers and/or consumers of services
- enhance trustworthiness
- discover and/or compose new services
- perform scientific computing and applications
- aid the negotiation of SLAs and their lifecycle
- novel forms of collaborative computing and resource sharing
- define novel principals, models and methodologies for the harnessing of digital relationships

Selected papers from the workshop will be invited for a special issue of the Journal of Web Services Research (JWSR)
- 0820 – 0830: Workshop Opening
- 0830 – 0930: Invited Talk: David De Roure, Title: The Multiple Networks of MyExperiment
The myExperiment social website for scientists has created a social network of people and the digital artefacts that they share. These artefacts arethemselves networks: workflows are networks of services and components, andmyExperiment's 'packs' are prototypical research objects which describe networks of other items to be shared as one entity. As a repository supporting Linked Data, myExperiment can provide these networks as RDF graphs. This talk will give an overview of myExperiment and new developments in theWf4Ever project, discussing the multiple networks and suggesting how they might be used as a basis to assist researchers in using the site.
