NNW SI ASCOSN 2016 : Neural Network World Journal Call for Papers –Special Issue on Applied Soft Computing for Online Social Networks
Call For Papers
Social media are computer-mediated tools that allow people to create, share or exchange information, ideas, pictures, audios or videos in virtual communities by using open Internet. Over the past five years, online social network (OSN) websites or services have been widely developed and deployed, including general-purpose OSNs like Twitter, Facebook and Wechat, or special-purpose ones for multimedia sharing YouTube, professional communication LinkedIn, and so on. Whatever the type of an OSN is, there exist very interesting and challengeable research works on how to improve an efficient social media computing and how to make an effective social network analysis and mining from the perspectives of both academia and industry. In order to better cope with the burning issues, advances on soft computing technologies, such as neural network and system, evolutionary computing and genetic algorithms, fuzzy set and rough set theories, probabilistic computing, as well as chaos theory and chaotic systems, are paving a road to more valuable and feasible solutions to the emerging social media and big data, finally bringing a brilliant future of wisdom and intelligent social media network.
This special issue aims to solicit the cutting edge research contributions of applied soft computing on social media and online networks. We specially invite authors to submit high quality, original papers that must not be under consideration for publication in any other journal or conference, and meanwhile some all-around and readable survey papers about the state-of-the art of soft computing in social network applications are also welcomed. Research The possible main topics are listed as follows, but not limited to.
Artificial/natural neural network and neural system applied to social media and online social network establishment
Fuzzy set and rough set theories in social media propagation and redistribution
Chaos theory and chaotic systems for social media content security
Deep learning and machine learning for multimedia recommendation systems and algorithms
Soft computing technologies for both quantitative and qualitative trust assessment and risk management in online social networks
Soft computing enabling (mobile) multimedia social network prototypes, empirical cases studies and other applications
