International Workshop
Criminal Networks Analysis and Mining

co-located with
6th International Conference on Social Informatics
(SOCINFO 2014)
Criminal Networks (CNs) differ from well-studied Social Networks in a number of
ways, including their size (usually the number of members is low), the lack of
knowledge of their structure and organization (information about members and
their relations is incomplete) and the different types of dynamics of
interactions (digital communications, economic transactions, face-to-face
interactions, etc.).
In recent years (say, after 9-11-2001) Criminal Network Analysis has grown
as an outstanding, almost independent research area. The ability to detect
criminal behavior across different interaction media is of paramount importance
to avoid abuse and fight crime. For this reason, computational tools and models
have been recently proposed to study criminal behavior in online platforms and
mobile phone networks.
An objective of the event is to create a fully interdisciplinary venue,
bringing together scientists from disciplines including, among others,
physics, sociology, mathematics, computer science, information technologies,
policy and law enforcement agencies. This event is intended to be of
particular relevance for some of the conference research topics, namely
Social network analysis and mining, Mining social big data, Web mining and
its social interpretations, Security, privacy, trust, reputation and incentive
issues, Real-time analysis or visualization of social phenomena and social

The workshop will welcome submissions on topics related to criminal networks.
Examples of relevant submissions include, but are not limited to the
following topics:

- Criminal Network analysis techniques
- Community detection in Criminal Networks
- Flow of information in Criminal Networks
- Visualization techniques in Criminal Networks
- Spatio-temporal analysis in Criminal Networks
- Simulations and real-case studies of attacks to CNs
- Crime on the Web and crimes using the Web

Submitted works have to present original research contributions not
concurrently submitted elsewhere and they can come as either full 10-page
or short 4-page papers.

All submitted papers must:

- be written in English
- contain author names, affiliations, and email addresses
- be formatted according to the Springer LNCS paper formatting guidelines
- be in PDF (make sure that the PDF can be viewed on any platform).
It is the authors’ responsibility to ensure that their submissions adhere
strictly to the required format. Submissions that do not comply with the
above guidelines may be rejected without review.

The authors can choose to publish their papers along with the main
conference proceedings, or withhold such publication for future work

Paper submission will be handled via EasyChair at this link:
