International Workshop on Social Media Mining and Analysis (SMMA-2015)
In Conjunction with the 15th IEEE International Conference on
Computer and Information Technology (CIT 2015)
26-28 Oct. 2015, Liverpool, UK

Submission Deadline: June 15, 2015 Author Notification: August 15, 2015
Final Manuscript Due: September 15, 2015 Registration Due: September 15 2015

The emergence of social network led to the boost of user generated content which consequently gave rise to fields such as data mining and web mining. The social network also gave rise to the new phenomena called social media which empowered the users towards citizen journalism where users can choose to act as content providers instead of more content consumers. The social networking websites such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Flickr, and Weibo etc, are a few examples of such empowerment. Furthermore, these social media platforms provide new opportunities to explore the user behavior which could benefit for various applications related to economy, marketing, education, business, medicine, etc. Social Media Mining is the process of representing, analyzing, and extracting actionable patterns from large-scale social media data.

SMMA-2015 aims to discuss the theories and methodologies from different disciplines such as computer science, data mining, machine learning, social network analysis, network science, sociology, and statistics in order to provide conceptual insights on mining social media data.

We invite researchers and practitioners namely from communities of artificial intelligence, data mining, and social network analysis to share their ideas, innovations, research achievements and solutions in fostering the advancement of intelligent data analytics and management of social media data. We solicit original, unpublished, and innovative research work on applying any intelligent technologies and methods to all aspects around the theme of this workshop. The workshop is co-located with CIT- 2015, the 15th IEEE International Conference on Computer and Information Technology. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Scope and Topics:
Fundamentals of social computing
Statistical modeling of large networks
Communities discovery and analysis in large-scale social networks
Large-scale graph algorithms for social network analysis
Reputation, trust, privacy and security in social networks
Expert systems and decision-making for social media data
Recommendation systems and marketing
Methods for tie strength or link prediction
Methods for extracting and understanding user and group behavior
Crowdsourcing and collective intelligence
Other issues related to various social computing applications and case studies.

All papers need to be submitted electronically through email: with PDF format. The materials presented in the papers should not be published or under submission elsewhere. Each paper is limited to 6 pages (or 10 pages with over length charge) including figures and references using IEEE Computer Society Proceedings Manuscripts style (two columns, single-spaced, 10 fonts). You can confirm the IEEE Computer Society Proceedings Author Guidelines at the following web page:

Once accepted, the paper will be included into the IEEE conference proceedings published by IEEE Computer Society Press (indexed by EI). At least one of the authors of any accepted paper is requested to register the paper at the conference.
