ABOUT PARSOCIAL
Computational methods to represent, model and analyze problems using social=
 information have come a long way in the last decade. Computational methods=
, such as social network analysis, have provided exciting insights into how=
 social information can be utilized to better understand social processes, =
and model the evolution of social systems over time. We have also seen a ra=
pid proliferation of sensor technologies, such as smartphones and medical s=
ensors, for collecting a wide variety of social data, much of it in real ti=
me. Meanwhile, the emergence of parallel architectures, in the form of mult=
i-core/many-core processors, and distributed platforms, such as MapReduce, =
have provided new approaches for large-scale modeling and simulation, and n=
ew tools for analysis. These two trends have dramatically broadened the sco=
pe of computational social systems research, and are enabling researchers t=
o tackle new challenges. These challenges include modeling of real world sc=
enarios with dynamic and real-time data, and formulating rigorous computati=
onal frameworks to embed social and behavioral theories. The IEEE Workshop =
on Parallel and Distributed Processing for Computational Social Systems (Pa=
rSocial) provides a platform to bring together interdisciplinary researcher=
s from areas, such as computer science, social sciences, applied mathematic=
s and computer engineering, to showcase innovative research in computationa=
l social systems that leverage the emerging trends in parallel and distribu=
ted processing, computational modeling, and high performance computing.

The papers selected for ParSocial will be published in the workshop proceed=
ings. Proceedings of the workshops are distributed at the conference and ar=
e submitted for inclusion in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library after the conf=
erence.
