Call For Papers

IWCSN 2011 - International Workshop on Computational Social Networks within WI/IAT'2011 conference
22 - 27 August 2011 (will be held at Campus Scientifique de la Doua, Lyon, France)


Social networks provide a powerful abstraction of the structure and dynamics of diverse kinds of people or people-to-technology interaction.
Web 2.0 has enabled a new generation of Web-based communities, social networks, and folksonomies to facilitate collaboration among different communities. Social network analysis is a rapidly growing field within the Web intelligence domain. The recent developments in Web 2.0 have provided more opportunities to investigate the dynamics and structure of Web-based social networks. Recent trends also indicate the usage of social networks as a key feature for next generation usage and exploitation of the Web.
This international workshop on "Computational Social Networks' is focused on the foundations of social networks as well as case studies, empirical, and other methodological works related to the computational tools for the automatic discovery of Web-based social networks. This workshop provides an opportunity to compare and contrast the ethological approach to social behavior in animals (including the study of animal tracks and learning by members of the same species) with web-based evidence of social interaction, perceptual learning, information granulation, the behavior of humans and affinities between web-based social networks. The main topics cover the design and use of various computational intelligence tools and software, simulations of social networks, representation and analysis of social networks, use of semantic networks in the design and community-based research issues such as knowledge discovery, privacy and protection, and visualization.

Recommended topics include but are not limited to the following:

- Automatic discovery and analysis of Web based social networks
- Intelligent Visualization of Social Network Analysis
- Intelligent social network
- Social Network Mining
- Social Networks and Social Intelligence
- Web Site Clustering
- Link Topology and Site Hierarchy
- Theories of Small-World Web
- Virtual and Web Communities
- Security, privacy and trust Computational Analysis of Social and Organizational Systems
- Web-Based Cooperative Work
- Knowledge Community Formation and Support
- Ubiquitous Computing
- Intelligent Wireless Web
- Ubiquitous Learning Systems
- Social network analysis of communities of practice
- Network evolution and growth mechanisms
- Information diffusion in social networks
- Affiliation networks
- Epidemics and rumors in networks
- Geographical clusters, networks, and innovation
- Effects of network structure and dynamics on knowledge transfer and sharing
- Intra- and inter-organizational networks
- Social capital, structural holes and Simmelian ties
- On-line communities and computer networks
- Computational models and agent-based simulations of networks
- Infrastructure and Tools for e-Social network
- Interdisciplinary Research and e-Social network
- International Collaborations in e-Social network
