Present CFP : 2010


With over half a billion users worldwide, online social networks (OSN) are now a mainstream research area with thriving sub-communities among theoretical physicists, epidemiologists, economists, sociologists, and computer scientists.

The first two WOSN workshops were co-located with the ACM SIGCOMM Conference on Computer Communication. The 3rd WOSN will be co-located with other USENIX conferences being held June 21–25, 2010. It will explore all aspects of online social networks, from their embedding in measurable physical devices (fixed and mobile) to the complex interpersonal interactions that take place at the application layer. The workshop will bring together researchers and practitioners to discuss the challenges and important questions posed by online social applications and their infrastructure, as well as the trends and directions that will inform the online social landscape of the future.


Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:
Internet-scale measurement and analysis of online communities
Correlation of different types or instances of social networks
API/application toolkit software architectures and system design
Mobile social networks
Privacy in online social networks
Experiences with deployed artifacts (e.g., Facebook applications)
Diffusion and viral propagation in online social networks
Economic models for online social networks
Social gaming applications
Implications of social networking on network and distributed systems design
System design for social networks
Trust systems based on social networks
Temporal evolution of social networks
Network architecture design to support large-scale social applications
Search strategies in social networks
Rating, review, reputation, filtering, expertise, interest, and trust
Identification of communities and their evolution in time
Social media analysis: blogs and friendship networks
Mobile social networks
Information sharing and forwarding
Anonymity and privacy and usability (of tools to manage)
Decentralized (ad hoc) network applications and services
Challenges posed by social networks

Submission Instructions

The workshop solicits original, previously unpublished ideas or completed work, position papers, and/or work-in-progress papers. Submissions must not be under review at any other workshop, conference, or journal. We encourage papers that propose new research directions or could generate lively debate at the workshop.

Submissions must be in PDF and must not exceed 8 (eight) 8.5" x 11" pages in length. Your paper should be typeset in two-column format in 10 point type on 12 point (single-spaced) leading, with the text block being no more than 6.5" wide by 9" deep. Reviews will be "single-blind," so author names and affiliations should be included in the submission version. Submissions must follow these formatting guidelines and must be submitted via the Web submission form, which will be available here soon. Authors of accepted papers are expected to present their papers at the workshop.

All papers will be available online to registered attendees before the workshop. If your accepted paper should not be published prior to the event, please notify production@usenix.org. The papers will be available online to everyone beginning on the day of the workshop, June 22, 2010.

Papers accompanied by nondisclosure agreement forms will not be considered. Accepted submissions will be treated as confidential prior to publication on the USENIX WOSN 2010 Web site; rejected submissions will be permanently treated as confidential.

Simultaneous submission of the same work to multiple venues, submission of previously published work, or plagiarism constitutes dishonesty or fraud. USENIX, like other scientific and technical conferences and journals, prohibits these practices and may take action against authors who have committed them. See the USENIX Conference Submissions Policy for details. Note, however, that we expect that many papers accepted for WOSN 2010 will eventually be extended as full papers suitable for presentation at future conferences. Questions? Contact your program co-chairs, wosn10chairs@usenix.org, or the USENIX office, submissionspolicy@usenix.org.
