A paper by my PhD student (Paul Seitlinger) and myself was accepted for this years CHI conference in Austin, Texas.

Seitlinger, P., & Ley, T. (2012). Implicit Imitation in Social Tagging: Familiarity and Semantic Reconstruction. Proceedings of ACM SIGCHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI 2012), Mai 02-05, Austin, Texas (in press). New York: ACM Press.

In the paper we examine how people imitate tags in a social tagging environment. Rather than just looking at the tags people use, we employed a multinomial model together with a specific experimental paradigm to study the underlying memory processes at play.
