3-6 DEC 2018 | 3rd International Workshop on Intelligent Data Analysis in Integrated Social CRM (iCRM 2018), Santiago de Chile – Call for papers


Integrated Social Customer Relationship Management (Social CRM) is an emerging concept that includes strategies, processes and technologies that use social media in CRM. Approaches from the field of web intelligence are important to transform the large mass of data available on social media into value adding opportunities for companies. Today, a variety of software applications based on web and text-mining techniques is used for this task. However, these tools often fall short in identifying complex patterns (e.g. semantic information, intentions). Advanced techniques, such as semantic business intelligence (SBI) or computational intelligence (CI), promise a great potential to improve the capabilities in knowledge discovery and may also enable new usage scenarios in Social CRM (e.g. network analysis, topic recognition, trend prediction) in various domains (e.g. tourism, banking, energy, public sector, publishing, health, logistics, education). However, their current application in commercial tools and real-world scenarios seems limited not only because of missing expertise, but also because of aspects such as ease-of-use, configuration costs or availability of required resources. The workshop aims to shed light on current research efforts from a technical and economical perspective targeting the development and implementation of innovative tools and methods for intelligent data analysis in Social CRM, resulting in new (integrated) processes and capabilities.

Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:
Innovative Social CRM tools
Social CRM in business
