Call For Papers

DBSocial 2011 (in conjunction with SIGMOD/PODS 2011) - First Call For Papers


Sponsors: ACM SIGMOD / Google, Inc.

=== Call For Papers ===

DBSocial (ACM SIGMOD Workshop on Databases and Social Networks) 2011,
to be held in Athens, Greece in conjunction with SIGMOD/PODS 2011, is a
venue for database research applied to the problems of extraction,
querying, and analysis of social networks. DBSocial aims at
disseminating results founded on database research and practice that
advance the state-of-the-art in the observation, management, and
analysis of inherently networked data originating primarily from
social phenomena.

DBSocial welcomes both theoretical and practical papers whose
approaches are within the scope of databases and very closely related
areas (e.g., data mining and information retrieval), and whose
validations are on par with the high standards in the database

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

* Performance and Scalability of Social Network Analysis
* Benchmarking for Social Network Analysis
* Discovery, Collection, and Extraction of Social Network Data
* Curation and Provenance in Social Networks
* Representation of Uncertainty in Social Network Analysis
* Analysis of Dynamic Social Networks
* Visualization of Social Networks
* Exploration and Analysis of Massive Social Networks
* Summarization of Massive Social Networks
* Parallel, Distributed, or Cloud Computation on Social Network Data
* Distributed Architectures for Online Social Networks
* Data Modeling for Social Networks
* Processing of Social Stream Data
* Social Search, Retrieval, and Ranking
* Collaborative Platforms and Social Recommendation
* Access Control in Online Social Networks
* Private Analysis of Social Networks
* Privacy Policies for Online Social Networks
* Identity, Reputation, and Trust in Online Social Networks
* Algorithms and Analysis Techniques for Meme Tracking

Jignesh M. Patel is a Professor at the University of
Wisconsin-Madison. He received his PhD from the University of
Wisconsin- Madison in 1998. His current research interests are in
large-scale data management, spatial data management, and biological
data management. He is the recipient of an NSF Career Award, multiple
IBM Faculty Awards, and the CIDR 2007 Gong Show Timeless Idea Award.
He has served as the VLDB 2009 Core Database Technology PC Chair, as
Vice-Chair for IEEE ICDE 2005, as an Associate Editor for the Systems
and Prototype section of ACM SIGMOD Record, and as an Associate Editor
for the IEEE Data Engineering Bulletin. He is also the co-founder of
Locomatix, a startup providing cloud-hosted location services and
solutions. Under his leadership, Locomatix has won numerous awards
including being named the 20 hottest startup by MobileBeat in 2010,
and being selected as the top 16 Innovative Startups by CTIA in 2010.

Duncan Watts (Principal Research Scientist at Yahoo! Labs)

Duncan Watts is a principal research scientist at Yahoo! Research,
where he directs the Human Social Dynamics group. He is also an
adjunct senior research fellow at Columbia University, and an external
faculty member of the Santa Fe Institute and Nuffield College, Oxford.
His research on social networks and collective dynamics has appeared
in a wide range of journals, from Nature, Science, and Physical Review
Letters to the American Journal of Sociology. He is also the author of
Six Degrees: The Science of a Connected Age (W.W. Norton, 2003) and
Small Worlds: The Dynamics of Networks between Order and Randomness
(Princeton University Press, 1999). His upcoming book, Everything Is
Obvious: *Once You Know the Answer (Crown Business, 2011), will be
released in March 2011. He holds a B.Sc. in Physics from the
University of New South Wales, and Ph.D. in Theoretical and Applied
Mechanics from Cornell University.
