Workshop Call For Papers


The annual workshop on Databases and Social Networks (DBSocial) is intended as a venue for database research applied to the problems of extracting, storing, querying, and analyzing social network data. The workshop will be co-located with SIGMOD-PODS 2013 at New York, NY. Papers are invited on novel applications of classical database research themes within the purview of social networks as well as topics that originate from this application domain. We invite both regular submissions as well research and industrial short papers on late-breaking results or on "outrageous ideas" and visions.

Regular Papers:

Papers should be electronically submitted in PDF format to

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to novel applications of classical database research themes within the domain of social networks:
Data Modeling
Query languages and processing
Information extraction and search
Data integration and cleaning
Privacy and access control
Performance and benchmarking

As well as emerging topics that originate from this application domain:
Social search
Extraction and curation of social networks
Visualization and exploration of large networks
Novel data mining and analysis techniques for understanding social phenomena
Platforms and algorithms for crowdsourced data

Submissions must be formatted using the ACM SIG style (see ACM Template), and must not exceed SIX pages in length (including all references and, if necessary, appendices) and will follow the same formatting and novelty requirements for the ACM SIGMOD Conference. All submissions will be reviewed by at least three members of the program committee, and will be handled electronically.

Outrageous Ideas and Vision Papers:

We also encourage the submission of short papers with late-breaking results, or on long term challenges and opportunities for database and data management in the domain of social networks which are not represented in mainstream research. The emphasis of such papers should be on radical ideas rather than established approaches, or difficult and open problems rather than solutions, and are encouraged to expand the boundaries of research in this area. We also encourage papers from the industry on new trends and opportunities. Submissions to this track should follow the same formatting guidelines as the regular submissions, but are limited to at most TWO pages in length.
