Third International Workshop on Semantic Computing for Social Networks: from user information to social knowledge (SCSN 2015)

in conjunction with
Ninth IEEE International Conference on Semantic Computing - February 09-11, 2015
Anaheim, California USA

Call For Papers


Internet users have become providers of information through social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, and so forth. In this context Semantic Computing plays a chief role because of its potentiality to turn shapeless crowds information into social and digestible knowledge.
The workshop, that will take place on Febraury 9-11, 2015, in conjunction with the 9th IEEE International Conference on Semantic Computing (ICSC2015), ( is a forum for researchers, industry practitioners and domain experts in the field of semantic computing to exchange the latest advances in the state of the art and practice of semantic computing applications to the social network context.

Topics of interest

The topics of interest of the workshop include, but are not limited to:

- What kind of Semantics-driven indexing and retrieval for Social Media?
- User modeling or social profiling?
- Semantics-based recommender systems for Social Media: is the dream coming true?
- Web adaptation methods and techniques
- Content on demand: customization or personalization?
- Semantic context modeling and extraction
- Semantic Models generation from social networks data
- Semantically-enabled data filtering
- Sentiment analysis in Social Networks
- Opinion mining in Social Networks
- Social Web Mining
- Semantics of Collective Intelligence
- Mobile social networking
- Distributed semantic computing for social network data analysis
- Collaborative filtering, mining and prediction
- Social computing applications and case studies
