Dear Mendeley user,

We are iRiS Lab at University of Pittsburgh and are conducting a study to learn how researchers use academic social networking sites (ASNS). Please find the following link to the questionnaire that asks a variety of questions about your attitudes toward your usages of Mendeley. The average survey duration is 6-8 minutes.


We will only analyze your answers in aggregation, and will not release them to others. This study has been approved by the University of Pittsburgh Institutional Review Board (# PRO12090367). We hope you can participate in our study. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at

How do processes in social networks affect networked computing systems and how can knowledge about these processes improve the engineering of technical systems?

Please consider to contribute your thoughts to the First International Workshop on Socio-Aware Networked Computing Systems (SocioAware 2011) to be held in Ann Arbor, MI, USA on October 3rd 2011.

Does Homophily or any other social phenomena (other than social translucence) affect collaborative filtering (
Conrad Lee
I've just created a group that is similar to this one but deals with a more specific topic. It's called "Geographic Diffusion in Social Networks." If you know of some good papers that are relevant, then please add them to that group.
Conrad Lee
I've added a description to the group "Processes in social networks"---please read it before adding any papers.

About this group

Papers in this group should shed light on either how information travels though networks (propagation) or on how certain processes (such as homophily, social influence) affect the topology. However please don't put "link prediction" literature here. Although link prediction would certainly fit here, it's become such a large field of research that I think it should have its own collection, and it does: I have another group called "Link Prediction."
