Mining social networks has now becoming a very popular research area not only for data mining and web mining but also social network analysis.
Data mining is a technique that has the ability to process and analyze large amount of data and by this to discover valuable information from the data.
In recent years, due to the growth of social communications and social networking websites
data mining becomes a very important and powerful technique to process and analyze such large amount of data.
Recently, many researches are focusing on developing new data mining techniques and algorithms
or devoting to improve traditional mining techniques for social network analysis.
However, it is meaningless, if the discovered valuable and useful data have not been applied in real application environment.
Social data are the aggregations of communication interaction and experience of people
and it if useful for us to make decision from these data.
Thus, it could be an important time to shift the research focus to application area such as decision support.

This year, the workshop will be held in conjunction with The 2009 International Conference on Advances in Social Networks Analysis and Mining (ASONAM) in Athens, Greece. We are looking forward to you submission and participation to the workshop and the main conference. This workshop invites papers of the following topics, but never exclusive:

* Mining Social Data for Decision Support
* Mining Social Web sites for Decision Support
* Algorithms for Mining Social Networks for Decision Support
* Matching Engines and Interface for Decision Support Systems
* System Architectures
* Intelligent and Multi-agent based Decision Support Systems
* Social Decision Support Systems
* Visualization
* Experiment and Implementation
* Case Studies and Empirical Studies
