Call for papers: "Next Generation of Social Computing for Computational Collective Intelligence"

For a special issue of the International Journal of Information Technology and Management.

Recently, Web 2.0 technologies such as Blog, SNS, Wikipedia, and Youtube have emerged as possible channels for exploitation by business and education.
