Journal of Network and Computer Applications
Personal and Ubiquitious Computing
Journal of Systems and Software

Social network analysis and cloud computing are two of the most exciting new trends in the recent developments of information technology. As the new generation computing paradigm, cloud enables computing resources to be provided as IT services in a pay-as-you-go fashion with high efficiency and effectiveness. With the popularity of social software as well as the fast development of cloud and other high-performance computing infrastructures, the outcome of social network analysis is becoming more and more attractive. However, information privacy and security issues are major challenges in both these areas. This symposium aims at providing a forum for researchers, practitioners and developers from different background areas such as distributed computing, social computing, information security and privacy protection areas to exchange the latest experience, research ideas and synergic research and development on fundamental issues and applications about security and privacy issu!
es in cloud environments and social networks. The symposium solicits high quality research results in all related areas.

The objective of this symposium is to invite authors to submit original manuscripts that demonstrate and explore current advances in all aspects of security and privacy in cloud computing environments. The symposium solicits novel papers on a broad range of topics, including but not limited to:

Security and privacy in Big Data management
Application of modern cryptography in cloud and social networks
Emerging threats in cloud-based services
Multi-tenancy related security/privacy issues
