Talk on "Socially-aware Traffic Management" given by Michael Seufert (http://www3.informatik.uni-wuerzburg.de/staff/michael.seufert/) at the workshop Sozioinformatik 2013 (http://www.sozioinformatik2013.de/, organized by Katharina Anna Zweig; held in conjunction with Jahrestagung der Gesellschaft für Informatik (INFORMATIK 2013)). The workshop addressed questions evolving around the interplay between social and technical systems, and bridged the gap from social sciences to computer sciences. The workshop talks gave an overview on different aspects of interactions between humans and IT-systems, and highlighted the need for a combination of social sciences and computer science in this field. The workshop showed that it is possible and sometimes necessary to integrate social studies into the design and application of IT-systems. This applies to SmartenIT especially in the context of socially-aware traffic management.

Socially-Aware Traffic Management.
Workshop Sozioinformatik 2013, Koblenz, Germany, September 2013.
Socially-aware traffic management exploits social signals to optimize traffic management in the Internet in terms of traffic load, energy consumption, or end-user satisfaction. Several use cases can benefit from socially-aware traffic management and the performance of overlay applications can be enhanced. In the talk we show interdisciplinary efforts between communication networks and social network analysis. Specifically, we give an overview on existing use cases and solutions, but also raise discussions at the workshop on additional benefits from the integration of social information into traffic management.
