IV Brazilian Workshop on Social Network Analysis and Mining (BraSNAM 2015)
XXXXV Congresso da Sociedade Brasileira de Computação
July 21 and 22, 2015.
Recife, PE, Brazil

This year, the IV Brazilian Workshop on Social Network Analysis and Mining (BraSNAM 2015) will be held in conjunction with CSBC, providing a valuable opportunity for multidisciplinary groups to meet and engage in rich discussions about topics related to social network analysis. CSBC is the official event of the Brazilian Computing Society (SBC) and in its 35th edition, the conference will be held in the city of Recife, the capital of the State of Pernambuco, on July 20-23, 2015.

The study of social networks originated in social, educational and business communities, starting to have a theoretical support in 40’s. Currently, the increasing use of Web and social medium fosters interaction among people, data dissemination and information sharing. With this growing of available data – provided by people and their interaction, as also provided by logs and web servers we have the opportunity of evaluate and develop techniques for social network analysis, identification and mining of social networks. This has led to a rising prominence of social network analyses in academia, politics, security, business, marketing, science and other fields.

The BraSNAM 2015 provides an interdisciplinary venue that will bring together practitioners and researchers from social network analysis and its related fields to promote collaborations and exchange of ideas and practices.

BraSNAM topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Big social data: Methodologies and frameworks

- Cases and application to real life situations: Medicine, Science, Education, Marketing, Team Formation, Decision Making, Management and others.

- Community detection and evolution

- Contextualized analysis of social and information networks
