A talk "Socially-Aware Traffic Management" was given by Michael Seufert at the workshop Sozioinformatik 2013 (, 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.
