The International Workshop on Life-Cycle of Social Networks (LCSN 2013), co–located with of the International Conference on Computational Science (ICCS 2013,


The increasing complexity, dynamics and evolution of real-world networks combined with constantly growing capabilities of gathering network data from natural and technology-based networked systems make network analysis one of the key challenges in the area of complex systems. The analysis of dynamic complex networks is at the early stages and requires a lot of effort in both developing the tools and approaches to tackle them as well as understanding the nature and functioning of such networks.

The LCSN 2013 workshop is devoted to analysis of evolving complex networked structures and their dynamics, primarily focusing on social networks and their convergence with technological networks (like software and service networks). The main theme of the workshop are models of growth and decay in social networks, which take into account such phenomena as appearance and disappearance of links and nodes as well as evolution of the link weights. As nodes in most complex networks unambiguously represent individual entities, (e.g. people in social networks as opposed to particles in physical systems) the models, which take into account local topology and in consequence preserve the identity of the nodes are of particular interest for this workshop.


The scope of the International Workshop on Life-Cycle of Social Networks (LCSN 2013) includes, but is not limited to the following:
• Social networks and their evolution
- Modelling of information, opinion and knowledge spread
- Social media analytics
- Social networking sites analysis
- Customer relationship management
- Customer behavioural analysis
- Recommender systems - Collaborative filtering and personalization
- Educational applications / e-learning
- Collaborative Information Retrieval
- Crime detection and investigation
- Organisational structure evaluation
- Collaborative environments, including wikis
- Systems for e-society, including e-government
- User analysis in web-based systems
- Semantic web
• Technological networks and their evolution
• Convergence of social and technological networks
• Complex network mining
• Visual representation of dynamic social networks
• Real-world case studies and applications


• January 31, 2013 – Full paper submission deadline (extended!)
• February 14, 2013 - Notification of acceptance
• March 1, 2013 - Camera-ready papers due
• March 10, 2013 - Presenting author registration due
• June 5-7, 2013 – Conference sessions


Authors are invited to submit manuscripts reporting original, unpublished research and recent developments pertaining to the above topics. Full paper submission deadline is January 10, 2013. The papers will follow an academic review process. Full paper manuscripts must be in English with a maximum length of 10 pages (using the Elsevier’s Procedia Computer Science format). Submissions should include the title, author(s), affiliation(s), e-mail address(es), phone/fax numbers, abstract, and postal address(es) on the first page.


The extended versions of selected papers presented during the LCNS 2013 workshop will be published in the special issue of a prestigious international journal selected from the Journal Citation Report (with impact factor).


The Best Paper Award will also be given for the paper judged to make the most significant contribution to LCNS 2013. The judges may make their assessment based on the papers included in the proceedings, not on the oral or poster presentation of the papers. However, for a paper to gain this award one of the authors must have attended the conference and presented the paper.
