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 3rd International Workshop on Social Networks and Social Web Mining in conjunction with DASFAA 2012 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
* Query processing and optimization
* Influence, trust, and privacy
* Search in social networks and social media
* Interoperability among social applications and social media
* Techniques for social-network and social-media analysis/mining
* Adversarial blogging and counter measures
* Link analysis and network structure discovery
* Community detection and evolution
* Blog search and retrieval
* Group interaction, collaboration, and recommendation
* Knowledge discovery (collective wisdom, trend analysis, and topic detection)
* Social aspects of Blogosphere
* Human interface and interaction techniques for social media


Authors are invited to submit electronically original, English-language research contributions not concurrently submitted elsewhere. All submitted papers should be Springer LNCS camera-ready format. The style files are available from Springer LNCS site:

All submissions files should be in PDF formats. We employ the single blind review system (in which the authors don't know the reviewers, but the reviewers know the authors). The number of pages should not exceed 14 pages. Any papers more than 14 pages will be rejected.


All accepted papers will be published in a combined volume of Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series published by Springer. The best quality accepted papers after the presentation on the workshop day will be recommended for possible publication in the following journals: World Wide Web Journal (SCI), Jounral of Database Management (SCIE), Social Network Analysis and Mining (Springer), Journal of Information Technology and Architecture (KEA), International Journal of Business Intelligence and Data Mining (InderScience), International Journal of Web Engineering and Technology (InderScience).
