IEEE International Workshop on Business Applications of Social Network
Analysis (BASNA 2011)
December 12, 2011
Bangalore, India

Co-located with 5th International Conference on Internet Multimedia Systems
Architecture and Application (IMSAA-11)

The aim of this workshop is to encourage multidisciplinary discussions related
to novel ideas and application geared towards analyzing social network data. By
bringing together researchers in the fields of Social Network Analysis (SNA),
data mining, and management studies, the workshop will focus on identifying the
“grey” areas of collaboration among their respective disciplines:
- The role of data mining techniques in identifying scalable methods for the
extraction and organization of social relations for management research and
business practice
- The role of management research in guiding data mining efforts and SNA metrics
development towards theoretically-grounded discoveries about social network emergence.
- The role of Social Network Analysis in developing and applying metrics and
tools for the mapping, evaluation, visualization, and design of social relations
in organizations.

Confirmed Keynotes:
- Prof Jaideep Srivastava, University of Minnesota

The workshop's topics of interest include (but are not limited to the following):

- Algorithms for data mining social networks, graphs, links
- Applications of social network data mining to address a real world business scenario
- Anomaly detection in network based applications like intrusion detection in telecommunication
- Fraud detection in telecommunication network
- Community discovery in social networks
- Contextual applications for social networks
- Data mining applications for micro-blogging (real time mining)
- Data mining on large graphs
- Mining Wikipedia like graph/network structure
- Data mining applications for viral marketing
- Behavioral analysis in social networks
- Social semantic web
- Privacy issues in social networks
- Recommendations in social networks

Social Network Analysis (SNA)-based:
- Knowledge Management (identifying experts, fostering knowledge exchange and integration,
creating and developing communities of practice)
- Marketing (identifying new customers, customer relationship management)
- Innovation Support (enhancing innovation capacity, supporting new product development teams)
- Change Management (managing change, post-merger integration, identifying key enablers)
- Talent Management (hiring and career development)
- Leadership Development (decision-making, identifying leaders)
- Intra-Organizational Coordination (supporting coordination and information flows among
organizational members and units)
- Inter-Organizational Coordination (supporting collaboration in consortia, industrial
districts, inter-organizational alliances)

Accepted papers of the workshop would be available via IEEE Xplore digital library.

Selected authors will be invited to submit an extended version of their paper, with a fast
reviewing process, to the following Journals:
- Journal of Information Science and Technology
- International Journal of Knowledge-Based Organizations
- International Journal of Social Network Mining

Paper submission: 20th September 2011 (EST, USA)
Paper review notification: 11th October 2011 (EST, USA)
Paper camera ready: 31st October 2011 (EST, USA)
