Location: Barcelona, Spain


The digital era creates new possibilities for observing humans’ behaviour,
especially the one expressed on the Internet, but we also leave traces
during everyday activity by making phone calls, using GPS devices
or using any kind of transportation. People who meet together or communicate
over the Internet or other channels constantly exchange information, rumours,
spread opinions and attitudes. Sometimes it is just an information that
is being passed from one to another, but it may also become the beginning
of a huge change, either of an individual or even of the whole society –
but in both cases it starts with becoming influenced or influencing others.
Social influence is the process of a complex nature which involves our
location in social network, the network structure and dynamics, time
and psychological and sociological factors. At the level of an individual
it is rather a psychological process but at the network scale it is strongly
dependent on the network structure and its dynamics. Hence, studying social
influence is a challenging interdisciplinary task, which, if succeeded,
leads to better understanding of the surrounding world.

This workshop aims to gather researchers studying the phenomenon
of social influence in networks and it is indented to be a cross-domain
knowledge exchange. That is why we are willing to present the state
of the art and current research in this area from different perspectives:
computer science, physics, sociology, as well as mathematics or psychology,
making this event interdisciplinary. We believe that only by taking
the advantage of all the above mentioned fields it is possible to move
forward in understanding how this complex works and how the society
may benefit from understanding it better.


The scope of the Workshop on Social Influence (SI 2014) includes,
but is not limited to the following application areas:

- social influence
- diffusion of information and innovations
- influence maximization
- graphical voter models
- evolutionary graph theory
- epidemic models on graphs
- data-driven approaches
- temporal networks
- seeding strategies
- optimization of dynamic processes in networks


10th September 2014 - submission deadline (23:59 Hawaii HST, firm)
29th September 2014 - notification of acceptance
3rd October 2014 - camera ready due (23:59 Hawaii HST)
10th November 2014 - SI 2014 workshop day
10-13th November 2014 - SocInfo 2014 conference dates


Papers reporting original and unpublished research results pertaining
to the above topics are solicited. Full paper submission deadline
is September 8th, 2014. These papers will follow an academic review process.
Manuscripts must be in English with a maximum length of 12 pages for
research papers and maximum 8 pages for demo papers. The purpose of the
demo paper is to demonstrate novel phenomena occurring in the domain
of social influence.

Papers have to be formatted according to the Springer LNCS template.

Submissions to SI 2014 should be anonymized: please remove authors' names
and any other information that could reveal your identity from your
submission. Papers that have not been properly anonymized will be
rejected without review.

At least one author of each accepted paper must attend the workshop
and present the paper.

Please submit your paper by using the on-line submission system via:

Springer LNCS template:

LNCS proceedings are indexed by Thomson Reuters Web of Science, Scopus,
DBLP, Google Scholar, ACM Digital Library and other indexing services.


We are proud to announce that authors of selected best papers will be invited
to submit the extended versions of their manuscripts to the special issue
of Social Networks Analysis and Mining journal (SNAM) published by Springer.
