Call For Papers

The 4th Workshop on Social Network Analysis in Applications(SNAA 2014)
co–located with the 2014 International Conference on Advances in Social Networks Analysis and Mining (ASONAM 2014 -


The SNAA 2014 workshop is devoted to analysis of social structures and what is more important to identify the areas where social network analysis can be applied and provide the knowledge that is not accessible for other types of analysis. Additionally, applications of social network analysis can be investigated either from static or dynamic perspective.

We seek for business and industrial applications of social network analysis that help to solve real-world problems. The area of social network analysis and its applications bring together researchers and practitioners from different fields and the main goal of this workshop is to provide them the opportunity to share their visions, research achievements and solutions as well as to establish worldwide cooperative research and development. At the same time, we want to provide a platform for discussing research topics underlying the concepts of social network analysis and its applications by inviting members of different communities that share this common interest of investigating social networks. As the area of social networks is a highly cross-disciplinary one, we aim to foster and develop sustainable collaborations between Computer Science and Informatics, Sociology, Cognitive Science and Psychology, Geographic and Environmental Science, Biology, and Health and Social Sciences. This will give the opportunity to push further the discussion upon the potential of social networks and their applications across these communities.


The scope of the 4th Workshop on Social Network Analysis in Applications (SNAA 2014) includes, but is not limited to the following application areas of social network analysis:
• Social media
• Business / e-business / e-commerce
• Customer relationship management
• Customer behavioural analysis
• Recommender systems – Collaborative filtering and personalization
• Information / opinion / knowledge spread and modelling
• Medical applications, e.g. diseases spread
• Social networks in health and social care
• Educational applications / e-learning
• Collaborative Information Retrieval
• Crime detection and investigation
• Organisational structure evaluation
• Collaborative environments, including wikis
• Sharing systems
• Virtual worlds and online multiplayer games
• Systems for e-society, including e-government
• User analysis in web-based systems
• Real–world case studies from the area of social network analysis
• Applications of spatio-temporal, textual, dynamic and multi-layer models


• April 25, 2014 – Full paper submission deadline
• June 9, 2014 - Notification of acceptance
• June 24, 2014 - Camera-ready paper due
• August 17-20, 2014 - Conference


Papers reporting original and unpublished research results pertaining to the above topics are solicited.
Full paper submission deadline is April 9, 2014. These papers will follow an academic review process. Full paper manuscripts must be in English with a maximum length of 8 pages (using the IEEE two-column template -
Submissions to SNAA 2014 should be anonymized: please remove author names and every other information that could reveal your identity from your submission. Papers that have not been properly anonymized will be rejected without review.
