Call For Papers

-- SESN 2014: 1st Workshop on Spontaneous and Ephemeral Social Networks --
call for contributions

SESN 2014 is co-located with MoWNET 2014, and will take place in Rome, Italy on September 8, 2014.

Background and topics
Social networks put together people with common interests and/or existing real-life relationships so that they can produce and share information. These networks rely on a centralized infrastructure and always provide users with the same services regardless of the context. The pieces of data produced in these networks have certain durability, and their production and consumption can be done over several months or years (e.g., Facebook, LinkedIn).
A contrario, Spontaneous and Ephemeral Social Networks (SESNs), rely on a distributed architecture and on opportunistic networks. They aim at providing nomadic people with context-aware services in order to produce together multimedia contents during ephemeral events, such as sport or cultural events. For instance in SESNs, photo sharing, collaborative document edition and sport results spreading services can be used for building structured digital contents that relate a sport event. SESNs will emerge in the public domain, only if effective solutions are designed in terms of collaborative data production in mobile situation, service provisioning and composition in opportunistic networks, incentive data production, evaluation and rewarding of the quality of the production. Besides that, the spontaneous and ephemeral features of SESNs impose to be able to upload all, or a part of, the data on a dedicated Web site, or traditional social networks. SESNs can also be relevant sources of information for journalists.

The goal of the SESN 2014 workshop is to serve as a forum for researchers or professionals from both academia and industry to exchange new ideas, discuss new solutions, and share their experience.
Topics of interest for SESN 2014 include, but are not limited to:
- Opportunistic communication supports,
- Service provision and composition in opportunistic networks,
- Applications and middleware supports for SESN,
- Mobile social networking applications,
- Collaborative multimedia content production,
- Service recommendation and ranking,
- Techniques for data dissemination and replication,
- Measurement of the quality of the information,
- Socio-economic models for SESN,
- Incentive mechanisms.
