Call For Papers

Call for Papers

In the last decade, there has been an explosive growth of research on practical complex networks, a theme that is becoming pervasive in many disciplines, ranging from mathematics and computer science to the social and biological sciences. Typical structures in reality include internet topologies, web graphs, peer-to-peer networks, biological networks, economic networks and most commonly social networks. A lot of research efforts have been made recently towards a deep understanding of real-world social platforms. Computing in social science, as a result, has become one of the central themes across mathematical science, information and communication technology, which attracts significant interest from researchers in mathematics, computer science, system science, and social science. The objective of this conference is to advance and promote the theoretical foundation, mathematical aspects, and applications of social computing.

The 5th International Conference on Computational Social Network (CSoNet 2016) is inherently interdisciplinary as it attempts to integrate across different disciplines such as social science, computer science, networks science, and mathematics in pursuit of a fundamental understanding of computational social networks. The conference welcomes all submissions which focus on common principles, algorithms and tools that govern social network structures/topologies, social interactions, functionalities, security and privacy, network behaviours, information diffusions and influence, social recommendation systems which are applicable to all types of social networks and social media.

Papers are invited on but not limited to the following topics. Suggested special sessions and topics are also welcome.

The scope of the conference includes (but is not limited to) the following topics:

● Real-world complex networks
● Social network design and architecture
● Mathematical modeling and analysis of real-world social platforms
● Information retrieval in social contexts, political analysts
● Community structure detection and analysis
● Network structure analysis and dynamics optimization
● Information diffusion models and techniques
● Complex network analysis, structure robustness and vulnerability
● Security and privacy in online social networks
● Efficient algorithms for social computing
● Social trends and network behaviors
● Reputation and trust issues in social media
● Social influence, recommendation and media
● Big data analysis on online social networks
● Applications of complex social network analysis

Important Dates

● Paper Submission Deadline: March 20, 2016 (11:59pm EST)
● Notification of acceptance: May 4, 2016
● Camera Ready and Registration: May 19, 2016
● Conference Dates: August 2-4, 2016

Submission Instructions

Authors who are interested in the above topics can submit their unpublished work to CSoNet 2016 conference via the Springer Online Conference System. A clear indication of the motivation and comparison with prior related work should be presented. Simultaneous submissions to a journal or another conference with refereed proceedings are not allowed.

Submitted papers should be prepared in LNCS style and should not exceed 12 pages. Each paper is to be submitted electronically as a single PDF file through the Springer Online Conference System. Please read carefully Springer's instructions on preparing the manuscript.

Note that proofs omitted due to space constraints must be placed in an appendix to be read by the program committee members at their discretion.


The proceedings of CSoNet 2016 will be published by Springer in series Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) and will be distributed at the conference. Selected papers can be invited to publish in special issues of Journal of Combinatorial Optimization (ISI) and Computational Social Networks (Springer).
