OVERVIEW AND TOPICS

Lectures are given by renowned researchers and industry practitioners
from major providers of social networks and online services worldwide.
Lectures combine theory and foundations, concepts and algorithms, as
well as applications and case studies. Lectures also feature advanced
topics, research questions, and group discussions. Particular emphasis
is put on encouraging participants to actively participate in
discussions, brainstorming, and break-out sessions. Participants will
have the opportunity to demonstrate their research in poster
presentations.

The Summer School aims at bringing together graduate students,
researchers, and practitioners interested in the following topics:

* Design of Popular Online Social Networks
* Mobile Social Networks
* Lessons Learned from Architecting Large-scale Decentralized Social
Applications

The Summer School will be held at the Sundvolden Hotel, one of the
oldest Norwegian hotels. The area's picturesque landscape is enclosed
by a number of fjords and lies at the foot of the Krokskogen mountain.
At the same time, it is conveniently accessible by bus from both Oslo
and the Gardermoen airport (Oslo airport).

The Summer School is hosted by the Networks and Distributed Systems
Group at the University of Oslo and co-organized by the Middleware
Systems Research Group at the University of Toronto.
