Call For Papers


First Workshop on Analysing Complex NEtworks 2010 (ACNE-2010)

Barcelona, Spain, September 20th
(co-located with ECMLPKDD 2010 )
Submission Deadline: Monday, June 21st, 2010

The workshop on Analysing Complex Networks will be held in
conjunction with the 2010 edition of the ECMLPKDD Conference on Knowledge
Discovery and Data Mining which will take place in Barcelona, Spain, 20th-24th
of September 2010.

Many real world data collections and information structures are dynamic and rich
in information. Represented as complex networks, a mesh of interconnected
information entities, allows to get the most out of them. Analysing complex
networks regarding non-trivial aspects such as information propagation, evolution,
or community discovery and discovering or even creating new connections requires
powerful tools for supporting visualisation, interaction and mining of and with
the underlying data.
While many graph mining tools have been developed there is a lack of techniques
able to tackle real-world networks which are typically multi-dimensional,
heterogeneous, and/or dynamic. Furthermore, sophisticated tools supporting the
interaction with huge networks are virtually non-existent. Besides refined mining
and aggregation methods there is a need for modelling and sophisticated
visualisation methods which take the limited amount of information into account
a user can process.

The aim of the workshop is to bring together pioneering researchers focussing on
the analysis of complex networks, and thus intensify the exchange of ideas
between different research communities to foster devising tools for creation,
analysis, and visualisation of complex networks. The workshop focusses especially
on researchers working on methods for mining, learning and analysis of (dynamic)
networks, the representation and semantics of complex networks, and visualisation
methods as well as user interface design.

In particular we are interested in the following topics:
* (conceptual) modelling and creation of complex networks
* (adaptive) visualisation of complex networks
* Data mining query languages for complex networks
* Data structures and data bases for information networks
* Bibliometrics
* User and preferences modeling (including feedback models)
* Constraint-based pattern mining in complex networks
* Privacy preserving mining of complex networks
* Learning on complex networks
* Semantics in complex networks
* Theoretical foundations of information retrieval and interaction
in networks

Authors are invited to submit manuscripts dealing with the topic of the workshop
via the submission system available at
We welcome papers that present new results, ongoing projects or completed work
(even previously published). The instructions for authors and the LaTeX packages
can be found at
There is no limitation on paper length although we recommend the usual page
limits of around 12 pages. The contributions accepted to the workshop will be
published as printed working notes and will also be made available online.
Selected papers will be considered for publication in a special issue of a major
