III Brazilian Workshop on Social Network Analysis and Mining (BraSNAM 2014)
July 30 and 31, 2014.
Brasilia, DF, Brazil
This year, the III Brazilian Workshop on Social Network Analysis and Mining (BraSNAM 2014) will be held in conjunction with CSBC, providing a valuable opportunity for multidisciplinary groups to meet and engage in rich discussions about topics related to social network analysis. CSBC is the official event of the Brazilian Computing Society (SBC) and in its 34th edition, the conference will be held in the city of Brasilia, in the capital Brazil, on July 30-31, 2014.

The study of social networks originated in social, educational and business communities, starting to have a theoretical support in 40’s. Currently, the increasing of the use of Web and social medium fosters interaction among people, data dissemination and information sharing. With this growing of available data – provided by people and their interaction, as also provided by logs and web servers - we have the opportunity of evaluate and develop techniques for social network analysis, identification and mining of social networks. This has led to a rising prominence of social network analyses in academia, politics, security, business, marketing, science and other fields.
The BraSNAM 2014 will provide an interdisciplinary venue that will bring together practitioners and researchers from social network analysis and its related fields to promote collaborations and exchange of ideas and practices.

More specialized topics within BraSNAM include, but are not limited to:
• Social networks visualization
• Flow and diffusion of information
• Community evolution
• Extraction and treatment of social data
• Mining techniques
• Influence detection
• Trust and expertise identification
• Linking prediction and simulation
• Social information applied to recommender systems
• Social information and retrieval systems
• Contextualized analysis of social and information networks
• Modeling of user behavior
• Mobile and smart multimedia sensors
• Monitoring social networks
• Privacy in social networks
• Detection of spam, misinformation and malicious activities
• Crowdsourcing and crowdfunding
• Cases and application to real life situations: Medicine, Science, Education, Marketing, Team Formation, Decision Making, Management and others.

**Selected papers will be published in special issues of a journal (to be announced soon) **
