*with apologies for cross-posting*

I would like to bring the call for papers for the special issue on *ICT,
Social Media and Travel* at the journal of Travel Behavior and Society to
your attention. *Please spread the word to interested
colleagues/students/networks.*

Details of the call is attached below and can also be accessed here

Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), Social Media and Travel
Behavior

Developments in ICT arose the interest about how these technologies could
shape travel. The development of the web 2.0 and social media, as well as
the dissemination of smartphones and related web applications increased the
potential of ICT to influence social activities. Despite the vast amount of
published research, results are still mixed and relevant gaps in the
literature exist. Particularly, social media and its relationships with
social travel have not been so thoroughly researched. The use of ICT and
social media could diverge between different urban and social contexts
increasing the complexity of its effects on travel. Other ramifications
include the concepts of activity fragmentation and multitasking, and the
study of the role of social networks and their characteristics in
influencing mobility patterns.

Potential topics include:

   - Effects of ICT and social media on travel and activities location;
   - Interactions between social networks, ICT and social media use and its
   effects on travel behavior;
   - The role of urban environment in the relationships between ICT and
   travel behavior;
   - Dynamics in social media and social networks and their influence on
   mobility patterns;
   - The effects of ICT on activity fragmentation, multitasking and its
   implications on travel;
   - ICT mediated social interactions effects on well-being.
