Call For Papers

The 5th Workshop on Social Network Analysis in Applications(SNAA 2015)
co–located with the The 2015 IEEE/ACM International Conference on Advances in Social Network Analysis and Mining (ASONAM 2015), Paris, France August 25-28, 2015


The SNAA 2015 workshop is devoted to analysis of social structures and what is more important to identify the areas where social network analysis can be applied and provide the knowledge that is not accessible for other types of analysis. Additionally, applications of social network analysis can be investigated either from static or dynamic perspective.

We seek for business and industrial applications of social network analysis that help to solve real-world problems. The area of social network analysis and its applications bring together researchers and practitioners from different fields and the main goal of this workshop is to provide them the opportunity to share their visions, research achievements and solutions as well as to establish worldwide cooperative research and development. At the same time, we want to provide a platform for discussing research topics underlying the concepts of social network analysis and its applications by inviting members of different communities that share this common interest of investigating social networks. As the area of social networks is a highly cross-disciplinary one, we aim to foster and develop sustainable collaborations between Computer Science and Informatics, Sociology, Cognitive Science and Psychology, Geographic and Environmental Science, Biology, and Health and Social Sciences. This will give the opportunity to push further the discussion upon the potential of social networks and their applications across these communities.

The scope of the 5th Workshop on Social Network Analysis in Applications (SNAA 2015) includes, but is not limited to the following application areas of social network analysis:
• Social media
• Business / e-business / e-commerce
• Customer relationship management
• Customer behavioural analysis
• Recommender systems – Collaborative filtering and personalization
• Information / opinion / knowledge spread and modelling
• Medical applications, e.g. diseases spread
• Social networks in health and social care
• Educational applications / e-learning
• Collaborative Information Retrieval
• Crime detection and investigation
• Organisational structure evaluation
• Collaborative environments, including wikis
• Sharing systems
• Virtual worlds and online multiplayer games
• Systems for e-society, including e-government
• User analysis in web-based systems
• Real–world case studies from the area of social network analysis
• Applications of spatio-temporal, textual, dynamic and multi-layer models


• April 17, 2015 – Full paper submission deadline
• June 22, 2015 - Notification of acceptance
• June 29, 2015 - Camera-ready paper due
• August 25, 2015 - SNAA 2015 (ASONAM workshop day)
• August 25-28, 2015 - ASONAM 2015


Papers reporting original and unpublished research results pertaining to the above topics are solicited. Full paper submission deadline is April 17, 2015. These papers will follow an academic review process. Full paper manuscripts must be in English with a maximum length of 8 pages using the IEEE two-column template -

Submissions to SNAA 2015 should be anonymized: please remove author names and every 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:


The Best Paper Award will be given for the paper judged to make the most significant contribution. The judges may make their assessment based on the papers contained in the proceedings, not on the oral or poster presentation of the papers. However, for a paper to gain this award one of the authors must have attended the conference and presented the paper.
