Call For Papers

CFP: 3rd International Workshop on Open Challenges in Online Social Networks (OASIS) @ ACM Hypertext 2023

4-8 September 2023, Rome, Italy

Accepted papers will be included in the ACM Digital Library.
Special issues associated with the conference are being organized. Selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version to those journals.

The diffusion of Online Social Networks (OSNs) has had a profound effect on the way we interact and a deep impact on society and business. Social Media have helped people to communicate, breaking down the geographical barriers that restricted communication. Through social networks, virtual communication, sharing of information, and community participation are possible even among people in uncomfortable conditions. Today, Social Media are one of the main parts of daily life by affecting sociality, but they are also essential channels through which information travels faster than ever. Analysis of OSN can help to foresee events to manage critical scenarios.

The rapid growth in popularity has opened new challenging problems involving numerous computer science fields. These issues have implications for social graph analysis, trust and security, and so on. Moreover, privacy issues and the usage of mobile devices have opened new research fields in the design of decentralized online social networks, which can be considered one of the most important challenges. Furthermore, the current improvement concerning the study and the proposal of new approaches for Social Networks and Media involves not only complex network analysis, and, in particular, the decentralization of social services, but also the introduction of innovative technologies such as Artificial Intelligence and Virtual/Mixed Reality to ferry humankind towards the next generation Online Social Networks. In particular, the metaverse is playing a crucial role in this new generation of hyperconnected, gamified, and immersive social networking platforms, and as a consequence the introduction of decentralization in social platforms, thanks to blockchain technology, but in particular through the Web3 and NFTs, as part of the Metaverse world.

The workshop targets researchers, doctoral students, people from industry and other people interested in discussing, reflecting and networking on central themes associated with the development and use of social networks. Papers on both theoretical and design aspects of social networks are welcomed, which describe and evaluate novel design methods and system prototypes. The workshop also welcomes work-in-progress and position papers.
