SNMAM 2016 : Track on Social Network and Media Analysis and Mining
Call For Papers
Online social networks are web platforms that provide a variety of services. Users may: share locations and community activities, post and tag photos and other media content, as well as contact individuals with similar interests. The rapid growth of social networks, as well as the rapid increase in social media consumption and production have made the analysis of social media and networks a hot topic amongst academic researchers and industry practitioners alike.
SIMBig has become an important venue that has attracted computer scientists, computer engineers, software engineers, and application developers from around the world. The Social Network and Media Analysis and Mining (SNMAM) track of SIMBig will provide a forum that brings both researchers and practitioners to discuss: research trends and techniques related to social networks and media.
Papers accepted in SNMAM 2016 will be published by Springer-Verlag in the LNCS series (LNCS is indexed in ISTP, EI and others) as part of SIMBig 2016 proceedings.
SIMBig 2016 proceedings will be indexed and distributed by DBLP and CEUR-WS.
