Call For Papers

Today the emergence of web-based communities and hosted services such as social networking sites, wikis and folksonomies, brings in tremendous freedom of Web autonomy and facilitate collaboration and knowledge sharing between users. Along with the interaction between users and computers, social media are rapidly becoming an important part of our digital experience, ranging from digital textual information to diverse multimedia forms. These aspects and characteristics constitute of the core of second generation of Web.

A prominent challenge lies in modeling and mining this vast pool of data to extract, represent and exploit meaningful knowledge and to leverage structures and dynamics of emerging social networks residing in the social media. Social networks and social media mining combines data mining with social computing as a promising direction and offers unique opportunities for developing novel algorithms and tools ranging from text and content mining to link mining.

The 2nd International Workshop on Social Networks and Social Media Mining on the Web in conjunction with DASFAA 2011 will bring together the academia, researchers and industrial practitioners from computer science, information systems, statistics, sociology, behavior science and organization science discipline, and provide a forum for recent advances in the field of social networks and social media, from the perspectives of data management and mining.

We solicit original and high quality submissions addressing all aspects of this field. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:

*Computational models for social media
*Search in Social Networks and Social Media
*Blog Search and Retrieval, Social Aspects of Blogosphere
*Sentiment Analysis; Polarity/Opinion Identification and Extraction
*Techniques for Social Network Analysis and for the Analysis of Social-Media Phenomena
*Link Analysis and Network Structure Discovery, Community Detection and Evolution
*Group interaction, Collaboration, and Recommendation
*Data Mining, Machine Learning, Information Retrieval, Artificial Intelligence in Social Contexts
*Human Interface and Interaction techniques for Social Media, Social Media tools; Navigation and Visualization
*Influence, Trust, and Privacy
*Social Behavior Modeling, Social Intelligence, Social Cognition
*Trend Identification and Tracking; Time Series Forecasting; Measuring Predictability of *Phenomena based on Social Media
*New social media applications; interfaces; interaction techniques
