X Brazilian Workshop on Social Network Analysis and Mining
July 18-22, Florianópolis, Brazil -- Online Edition

The X Brazilian Workshop on Social Network Analysis and Mining (BraSNAM 2021) will be held in conjunction with CSBC (Congress of the Brazilian Computer Society), which provides a valuable opportunity for multidisciplinary groups to meet and engage in rich discussions about topics related to social network analysis. In 2021, CSBC is under the organization of UFSC and UNIVALI, in Florianópolis, Brazil.

The study of social networks originated in social, educational and business communities, with better theoretical support from the 1940’s on. Today, the increasing use of Web and social media fosters interaction among people, data dissemination and information sharing. With such a growing data availability (provided by people and their interaction, logs and web servers), there are opportunities of evaluating and developing techniques for improving social networks and information over many contexts. Hence, social network analyses and techniques have defined fruitful research fields in academia, politics, security, business, marketing, sciences and many others.

BraSNAM 2021 provides an interdisciplinary venue to bring together practitioners and researchers from social networks and its related fields, to promote collaboration and exchange of ideas and practices.

Topics of Interest
BraSNAM topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

== Social Data and Information Lifecycle: extraction, cleaning, modeling, querying, indexing, embedding, features and metrics, transformation, compression and summarization, integration, management, storage, characterization, analysis, mining, learning, sampling, monitoring, privacy preserving, navigation and visualization, and evolution.

== Social and Information Networks Human Aspects: crowdsourcing and crowdfunding, ethical issues, fairness and bias, spam, misinformation, malicious activities, communities, influence detection and propagation, epidemiology, social capital, user behavior modeling, organizational and group behavior, cognitive computing, reputation, trust and expertise identification, and team formation.

Submission Instructions

The workshop accepts submissions of technical papers (full papers) and extended abstracts (position papers), including tools/applications (demo tools) or datasets description, written in Portuguese or English, not exceeding 12 or 6 pages, respectively. The submissions must follow the Code of Conduct for publications of Brazilian Computing Society (SBC). Submissions should follow the template of the Brazilian Computing Society (SBC), which are available in

All (full and position) papers will be peer-reviewed according to the following criteria: adequacy to workshop scope, relevance, technical quality, clarity, originality, and evaluation of results. The evaluation of results is desired, but is not a precondition for submission. All technical papers will be presented during the workshop.

In case of dataset papers, the authors must follow the “Dataset Paper Format” that includes: a dataset or a group of datasets, metadata describing the content, quality and structure, potential applications, and methods employed for data collection. Descriptive statistics may be included in the metadata (more sophisticated analyses should be part of technical paper submission). Authors are encouraged to include a description of how they intend to make their datasets FAIR. Datasets and metadata must be published using a dataset sharing service (e.g. Zenodo, figshare, datorium, dataverse, or any other dataset sharing services that indexes your dataset and metadata and increases the re-findability of the data) that provides a DOI for the dataset, which should be included in the dataset paper submission. ONLY Dataset paper review will be single-blind, and all datasets have to be identified and uploaded at the time of submission. Please, be careful with private or confidential information/data. The authors will be responsible for any sensitive information in the datasets.

***Submissions will go through a double-blind review process with at least three reviewers. Therefore, author names and contact information must be omitted from the whole submission. ONLY Dataset submissions will go through single-blind review, and all datasets have to be identified and uploaded at the time of submission. For more information on how to produce an anonymous submission, check (in Portuguese only). ***

Authors must identify the topic(s) being addressed in the paper to assist the program committee in the review process. Selected papers will be published in special issues /of a journal (to be announced soon). Each manuscript must be submitted electronically, as a PDF file, via the JEMS submission site (

Paper Registration and Presentation Instructions

- At least one author registration is mandatory for including the paper in the proceedings. Authors with more than one approved paper at any CSBC workshop/event may pay a single registration, plus an “extra publication fee” per additional article. The value of this “extra publication fee” will be informed at the CSBC registration webpage.

- Full papers will be presented in the technical sessions of BraSNAM 2021. Accepted short papers, tools/applications, and dataset will also be published in the workshop’s proceedings and will be presented as posters. There will be a session for tool demonstration.

- BraSNAM reserves the right to not include in the proceedings those papers that, during the workshop, are not presented by one of its authors or by a designated presenter.

- Accepted papers will be published in the BraSNAM proceedings at SBC Open Lib, SBC’s content portal, in the Brazilian Workshop on Social Network Analysis and Mining (BraSNAM) series, ISSN 2595-6094. All papers will be indexed with DOI.
