CSoNet 2015 : The 4th International Conference on Computational Social Networks
Call For Papers
Call for Papers
In the last decade, there has been an explosive growth of research on practical complex networks, a theme that is becoming pervasive in many disciplines, ranging from mathematics and computer science to the social and biological sciences. Typical structures in reality include internet topologies, web graphs, peer-to-peer networks, biological networks, economic networks and most commonly social networks. A lot of research efforts have been made recently towards a deep understanding of real-world social platforms. Computing in social science, as a result, has become one of the central themes across mathematical science, information and communication technology, which attracts significant interest from researchers in mathematics, computer science, system science, and social science. The objective of this conference is to advance and promote the theoretical foundation, mathematical aspects, and applications of social computing.
CSoNet 2015 is inherently interdisciplinary as it attempts to integrate across different disciplines such as social science, computer science, networks science, and mathematics in pursuit of an foundational understanding of computational social networks. The conference welcomes all submissions with focus on common principles, algorithms and tools that govern social network structures/topologies, social interactions, functionalities, security and privacy, network behaviours, information diffusions and influence, social recommendation systems which are applicable to all types of social networks and social media. There are two submission types (in LNCS format):
+ Full Paper (up to 12 pages)
+ Extended Abstracts (up to 2 pages)
Topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the following:
+ Social network design and architecture
+ Mathematical modeling and analysis of real-world social platforms
+ Information retrieval in social contexts, political analysts
+ Social community structure detection and analysis
+ Network dynamics optimization
+ Information diffusion models and analysis
+ Security and privacy in online social networks
+ Efficient algorithms for social computing
+ Social trends and network behaviors
+ Reputation and trust issues in social media
+ Social influence, recommendation and media analysis
+ Big data analysis on online social networks
Authors who are interested in the above topics can submit their unpublished work to CSoNet 2015 conference via Easychair. A clear indication of the motivation and comparison with prior related work should be presented. Simultaneous submission to a journal or another conference with refereed proceedings is not allowed.
Submissions must adhere to the following guidelines:
+ Papers must be formatted using LNCS format file without altering margins or the font point.
+ The maximum length of a regular paper (including references) is 12 pages, and of an extended abstract is 2 pages.
+ Proofs omitted due to space constraints must be placed in an appendix to be read by the program committee members at their discretion.
Accepted papers will be published in LNCS. Selected papers can be invited to publish in special issues of Journal of Combinatorial Optimization (ISI) and Computational Social Networks (Springer).
