Special Session 1: CISM-2023

Special Session on Collective Intelligence in Social Media (CISM-2023)

The 36th International Conference on Industrial, Engineering & Other Applications of Applied Intelligent Systems (IEA/AIE 2023), Shanghai, China, July 19 – July 22, 2023


The primary objective of this special session is to provide an internationally respected forum for scientific research on the computer-based methods of Collective Intelligence and their applications in such fields as social networks, web intelligence, and multi-agent systems. In recent years, advances in information technologies have significantly leveraged Collective Intelligence referred to as the wisdom of crowds, for finding solutions to a wide range of problems in the real world. In addition, the emergence of social media has significantly enhanced major dimensions of Collective Intelligence, and social media has been considered crowd-mediated for harnessing Collective Intelligence from a group of diverse individuals based on sentiment analysis expressed in their opinions. Beyond combining individual potentials, Collective Intelligence also aims to maximize the possibility of a group. For such potentiality, Collective Intelligence plays an increasingly significant role in growing the collaborative knowledge creation and sharing systems, such as wikis, social networks, and content-sharing platforms. Such justifications motivated us to propose the CISM session. We welcome the original, advanced, and state-of-the-art theoretical and applied contributions to the Collective Intelligence field and its relevant issues.


The coverage of the CISM-2023 includes, but is not limited to, the following subjects:

  • Collective intelligence
  • Wisdom of crowds
  • Web intelligence
  • Group decision making
  • Knowledge integration
