Information and Technology: Thematic Course of IG 08

The thematic interest group course IG 08 was identified from the analysis of the papers presented in oral communication and poster, during the years 2008-2016. The qualitative and quantitative study took place from the domain analysis, to identify how the approach of technologies inside the IG 08 from seven categories of structured analysis from the menu of the IG and the proposal of Santos et al. (2013), identifying themes, authors, and institutions in each of them. This step of the study resulted in the mapping of the IG 08 – Information and Technology, with the display of the main approaches about the technologies in the context of IG 08, your distribution in terms of presentation and the rankings of authorship and of institutions.

Contextualizing theoretical concepts on Online Social Networks data collecting process

The use of Online Social Network services raise concerns in the way information from individuals is shared, such as starting from the process of collecting data from users that are stored in the institutions that own this services. The purpose of this study is to establish a contextualization of the concepts involved in the data collection available at online social network services, based on the analysis of content in technical-operational documents and in Terms of Use, and by an exploration of the characteristics of the data collection interfaces.

This paper describes a study conducted by Open Data for Development documents, in the retrieval phase and focusing on data quality, especially in analyzing structures found on government datasets pages, in order to identify ways to measure data quality aspects.

Collection of data from social networks: privacy of personal data through access of the Application Programming Interface

The development of social networks is a topic of study for several areas, and with the increased use of the Internet in professional and leisure activities, online social networks have emerged: services with the goal of providing an interface between individuals.
Some of these networks have millions of users, who agree and give their consent to the Terms of Use. The Terms of Use of these services contain the delimitation of the processes of data collection by external agents, creating a cascading effect of user identification and can enhance activities which are detrimental to user privacy.
This study looks to verify if the systematic data collection processes for documents which contain characteristics of the Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) data collection and the Terms of Use can help in identifying activities potentially harmful to user privacy (referenced) and reveal prerequisites of knowledge about the technology involved in this process, concepts prior to identifying characteristics and professional areas involved in understanding the technology of the API and the Terms of Use.
