Call For Papers

Fourth International Workshop on Semantic Computing for Social Networks: from user information to social knowledge (SCSN 2016)


Internet users have become providers of information through social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, and so forth. In this context Semantic Computing plays a chief role because of its potentiality to turn shapeless crowds information into social and digestible knowledge.
Furthermore, recent developments in processing, storing, and sharing huge amount of data become problematic due to the lack of new approaches, techniques, methods, algorithms and technologies oriented to social networks, including theoretical notions and insufficient awareness on security, retrieval, networking, behavioral and social issues.
The workshop, that will take place on February 3-5, 2016, in conjunction with the 10th IEEE International Conference on Semantic Computing (ICSC2016), ( is a forum for researchers, industry practitioners and domain experts in the field of semantic computing, social networks, and social interactions to exchange the latest advances in the state of the art and practice of semantic computing applications to the social network context.

Topics of interest

The topics of interest of the workshop include, but are not limited to:

- What kind of Semantics-driven indexing and retrieval for Social Media?
- User modeling or social profiling?
- Semantics-based recommender systems for Social Media: is the dream coming true?
- Web adaptation methods and techniques
- Content on demand: customization or personalization?
- Semantic context modeling and extraction
- Semantic Models generation from social networks data
- Semantically-enabled data filtering
- Sentiment analysis in Social Networks
- Opinion mining in Social Networks
