The 2014 IEEE/ACM International Conference on Advances in Social Network Analysis and Mining
*** Beijing China August 17-20, 2014 ***
*** Home Page: ***

The IEEE/ACM International Conference on Advances in Social Network Analysis and Mining (ASONAM) provides a premier interdisciplinary forum to bring together researchers and practitioners from all social networking analysis and mining related fields for presentation of original research results, as well as exchange and dissemination of innovative, practical development experiences. ASONAM 2014 seeks to address important challenging problems with a specific focus on the emerging trends and industry needs associated with social networking analysis and mining. The conference solicits experimental and theoretical findings along with their real-world applications.

General areas of interest to ASONAM 2014 include the design, analysis and implementation of social networking theory, systems and applications from information science, mathematics, communications, business administration, sociology, psychology, anthropology, applied linguistics, biology and medicine. More specialized topics within ASONAM include, but are not limited to:

* Agent based social simulation and computational models
* Anomaly detection in social network evolution
* Application of social network analysis and mining
* Community discovery and analysis in large scale online/offline social networks
* Connection between biological similarities and social network formulation
* Contextual social network analysis and mining
