Social media applications such as blogs, microblogs, wikis, news aggregation sites and social tagging systems have pervaded the web and have transformed the way people communicate and interact with each other online. In order to understand and effectively design social media systems, we need to develop models that are capable of reflecting their complex, multi-faceted socio-technological nature. While progress has been made in modeling particular aspects of selected social media applications (such as the architecture of weblog conversations, the evolution of wikipedia, or the mechanics of news propagation), other aspects are less understood.

2. Enhancing Health Data Utilization with Hypertext

Diego Rivera
Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, University of Toronto
Dr. Tammy Sieminowski, Physician


The goal of this workshop is to identify opportunities to use hypertext, annotation, and social computing in making better use of emerging sensor and information technologies in healthcare. We expect that a broad range of research approaches will be relevant to this workshop, with issues including the role of hypertext in the design of EHR systems, and best practices in the design of annotated and hyperlinked health applications.
