Call For Papers

1st Workshop on
Decentralized Social Networks (DeSN 2015)
in conjunction with WISE 2015

3 November 2015, Miami, Florida


Paper submission deadline: July 6, 2015
Notification of acceptance: August 15, 2015
Camera-ready submission deadline: September 8, 2015
Workshop: November 3, 2015


Online Social Networks (OSNs) have become a major tool for the worldwide
collaboration and information dissemination. Their ever growing interest and
the evolution in uses brings new challenges and practical research problems. In
particular, the massive adoption of mobile and wireless devices, and the
evolution of P2P solutions raise more and more attention to partially or fully
decentralized social networks. Such fully user-centric systems in terms of
architecture and applications face many challenges and call for new designs,
algorithms, protocols, Web technologies, privacy models, collaborative services
and Web applications.

The goal of the DeSN 2015 workshop is to serve as a forum for researchers or
professionals from both academia and industry to exchange new ideas, discuss
new solutions, and share their experience in the design, implementation,
analysis, experiment or measurement related to decentralized social networks.


Topics of interest for DeSN 2015 include, but are not limited to:

- Communication support for infrastructure-less decentralized social networks,
- Service provision and composition in decentralized social networks,
- Web technologies and middleware supports for decentralized social networks,
- Mobile and Web-based distributed social networking applications,
- Collaborative multimedia content production in decentralized social networks,
- Recommendation and ranking in decentralized social networks,
- Techniques for data dissemination and replication,
- Privacy, security and trust aspects,
- Measurement of decentralized social networks and information quality,
- Socio-economic models in decentralized social networks,
- Incentive mechanisms.


We welcome both research papers and posters / demonstrations.

- Research papers

Authors are encouraged to submit papers describing original, previously
unpublished, and not currently under review by another conference or journal.
Submissions may not exceed 10 pages simple column, including everything (i.e.,
figures, tables, references, appendices, etc.). Papers must be formatted
according to Springer's LNCS format

- Posters / demonstrations

This format provides an opportunity to present early-stage work and receive
feedback from the community. Submissions may not exceed 5 pages simple column,
including everything (i.e., figures, tables, references, appendices, etc.).
Papers must be formatted according to Springer's LNCS format
( Each submission should be
accompanied by a PDF draft of the proposed poster included as page 6 of the
submission. Poster can be accompanied by a demo of a preliminary version of the
described system or technique ; demos are highly encouraged.

Accepted papers will be published by Springer in Lecture Notes in Computer
Science series.
At least one of the authors of every accepted paper must register and present
their work at the workshop.
