Call For Papers

The Third International Symposium on Social Networks Analysis, Management and Security
(SNAMS - 2016)

in conjunction with

The 4th International Conference on Future Internet of Things and Cloud (FiCloud-2016)

22-24 August 2016, Vienna, Austria

Social network analysis is concerned with the study of relationships between social entities. The recent advances in internet technologies and social media sites, such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, have created outstanding opportunities for individuals to connect, communicate or comment on issues or events of their interests. Social networks are dynamic and evolving in nature; they also involve a huge number of users. Frequently, the information related to a certain concept is distributed among several servers. This brings numerous challenges to researchers, particularity in the data mining and machine learning fields. The purpose of this SNAMS Symposium is to provide a forum for researchers to present and discuss their work which is related to social network analysis. This workshop is col-located with the 3rd International Conference on Future Internet of Things and Cloud (FiCloud-2016), 22-24 August 2016, Vienna, Austria.

Proceedings of the workshops will be published by the IEEE Conference Publishing Services (CPS) and will be included in the IEEE-Xplore and the IEEE Computer Society (CSDL) digital libraries. These are also indexed through IEE INSPEC, EI (Compendex), Thomson ISI.
