Call For Papers

In recent years, security and privacy concerns with online social networks (OSN) have becoming a key research area. Since the popularity of OSN Websites such as Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, etc has grown enormously and playing a significant role among the Internet community. The concept of applying a computational intelligence (CI) approaches in social network analysis is feasible and sound. Moreover, CI and its associated learning paradigms are playing vital characteristics in large number of application areas related to security and privacy in information systems. CI paradigm consists of various branches that are not limited to expert systems, artificial immune system, swarm intelligence, fuzzy system, neural network, evolutionary computing and various hybrid systems, which are combinations of two or more branches. We expect this special issue intends to bring together the state-of-art practices on security and privacy aspects has been addressed from CI perspective, with a focus on simulations of social networks, representation, applications/tools and analysis of social networks which will be the open avenues of future research.

We invite researchers to contribute original research articles as well as review articles that will seek the continuing efforts to understand the CI techniques that lead to future improvements for social networks security and privacy.
