Call For Papers

The 3rd Workshop on Social Network Analysis in Applications(SNAA 2013)
co–located with the 2013 International Conference on Advances in Social Networks Analysis and Mining (ASONAM 2013, http://asonam.cpsc.ucalgary.ca/index.php)

http://www.zsi.pwr.wroc.pl/SNAA2013/

----------------------------------------------------------------

The SNAA 2013 workshop is devoted to analysis of social structures and what is more important to identify the areas where social network analysis can be applied and provide the knowledge that is not accessible for other types of analysis. Additionally, applications of social network analysis can be investigated either from static or dynamic perspective.

We seek for business and industrial applications of social network analysis that help to solve real-world problems. The area of social network analysis and its applications bring together researchers and practitioners from different fields and the main goal of this workshop is to provide them the opportunity to share their visions, research achievements and solutions as well as to establish worldwide cooperative research and development. At the same time, we want to provide a platform for discussing research topics underlying the concepts of social network analysis and its applications by inviting members of different communities that share this common interest of investigating social networks. As the area of social networks is a highly cross-disciplinary one, we aim to foster and develop sustainable collaborations between Computer Science and Informatics, Sociology, Cognitive Science and Psychology, Geographic and Environmental Science, Biology, and Health and Social Sciences. This will give the opportunity to push further the discussion upon the potential of social networks and their applications across these communities.

KEYNOTE SPEAKER
----------------------------------------------------------------------

• Prof. Boleslaw Szymanski, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, USA.
Prof. Symanski is working in the field of network science, with emphasis on social, wireless and sensor networks, to analysis and design of distributed and parallel algorithms, simulation of networks and biological/ecological phenomena.
His current research projects focus on dynamical processes on networks, hidden groups in social networks, sensor network protocols and algorithms, and large–scale parallel and distributed computing and simulation.
