DeSN 2016: 2nd Workshop on Decentralized Social Networks
November 28, 2016, Hiroshima, Japan
In conjunction with Mobiquitous 2016

Mobile devices and social networks have become privileged communication and data
sharing means today. Their growing use and evolution bring new challenges and
practical research problems, especially on partially or fully decentralized
social networks. New algorithms, protocols, services, applications, middleware
supports, incentive mechanisms, privacy models, and collaborative and
recommendation techniques must be devised and proposed for such user-centric

The goal of the DeSN 2016 workshop is to serve as a forum for researchers or
professionals from both academia and industry to exchange new ideas, discuss new
solutions, and share their experience in the design, implementation, analysis,
experiment or measurement related to decentralized social networks.

Workshop topics
Topics of interest for DeSN 2016 include, but are not limited to:

- Communication support for infrastructure-less decentralized social networks
- Service provision and composition in decentralized social networks
- Web technologies and middleware supports for decentralized social networks
- Mobile and Web-based distributed social networking applications
- Collaborative multimedia content production in decentralized social networks
- Recommendation and ranking in decentralized social networks
- Techniques for data dissemination and replication
- Privacy, security and trust aspects
- Measurement of decentralized social networks and information quality
- Socio-economic models in decentralized social networks
- Incentive mechanisms

Authors are encouraged to submit papers describing original, previously
unpublished, and not currently under review by another conference or
journal. Accepted papers will be included in the Mobiquitous 2016 Conference

Submissions may not exceed 6 pages, and must be formatted using the ACM Author's

Papers must be submitted via Confy (
