The 2012 International Workshop on Agent, Social Networks, and Ubiquitous  
Computing (ASNUC 2012) will be held in Vancouver, Canada, June 26-28, 2012.
In ubiquitous computing environments providing appropriate services and  
information to users at the right place in the right way is challenging for  
many reasons: different user interests, heterogeneous devices and services,  
dynamic networks, information overload, or differing privacy levels, for  
example. Agent technology is a paradigm expected to play an increasing role  
in complex computing environments, and due to the increasing popularity of  
social networking services we expect to see the convergence of agent and  
social web technologies. The goal of this theme issue is to bring together  
state-of-the-art research contributions that examine the convergence of  
agent technologies and social networks for Ubiquitous Computing
