General Information
SOCNET 2014 is a workshop at MMB & DFT 2014 on modeling, analysis, and management of complex social networks. The term social network denotes the social structure that emerges from human actors' interaction with each other. Over the years, scholars in the domain of anthropology, sociology, psychology, economics and organizational theory have proposed different methods and techniques to discover these structures and to draw conclusions about the functioning of social networks, and network outcomes. Practical applications of social network analysis constitute a very important, rapidly growing area in modern interconnected information society. The related scientific concepts incorporate a variety of methods from graph theory, computer science, and statistics, among others.

The workshop will cover all aspects of modeling, analysis, and management of social networks and the applied methodologies arising in social network analysis and theory. It ranges from purely theoretical achievements to practical applications regarding the structural inference, modeling, analysis, simulation, and control, as well as usage of social networks.

The workshop is interdisciplinary in nature. We invite contributions from many interdisciplinary fields, including but not restricted to, information systems, computer science, economics, management, sociology, psychology, anthropology, biology and physics in order to fully incorporate the methodological, technical as well economic aspects of social network analysis. We also invite practitioners who will enrich the discussion through their experiences with business applications of social networking sites. Fresh ideas will be exchanged and open problems and new directions will be discussed in a cross-disciplinary setting.

The workshop is co-located with the 17th International GI/ITG Conference on “Measurement, Modelling and Evaluation of Computing Systems” and “Dependability and Fault-Tolerance” (MMB & DFT 2014).

SOCNET 2014 solicits novel unpublished material on modeling, analysis and management of social and complex networks. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

Modeling and Analysis
analysis of random graph models and multiplicative stochastic processes
percolation properties of equilibrium and growing networks
characterization, inference and evolution of topologies
robustness and vulnerability of network infrastructures
influence and epidemic spreading in complex networks
investigation of scalability properties
algebraic and graph-theoretical partitioning techniques and spectral optimization of modularity concepts
formation of communities and their algorithmic detection
network evolution, and dynamic social network analysis
exponential random graph (p*) models
models accounting for network autocorrelation
relationship between structural properties of social networks and individual, group, and organizational performance
new data collection methods
methods and tools for network visualization

Inference and Simulation Algorithms
inference of complex network properties in deployed infrastructures
structural inference and analysis of the user behavior in social networks
immunization strategies for NGNs
tools supporting analysis, inference and prediction of complex networks

Complex Network Methodologies
emergent properties of real networks
synchronization in complex and social networks
signaling, management and distributed control protocols
control methods and algorithms for complex and social networks
