2016 IEEE International Conference on SIGNAL IMAGE TECHNOLOGY &
Track on
Social Networks, Large Networks and their Applications (SLNA)
Naples Italy, 28 November – 1 December 2016

Recently, social networks have grown rapidly in size and popularity.
The global internet population has witnessed a popular expansion to reach billions of users around the world.
For connected users, social networks provide a most suitable space for sharing data, interacting with other users and forming communities with common interests.
Social networks have important impacts on today’s society not only in terms of structure and dynamics, but also regarding scientific and technological aspects.

Social networks raise new research challenges due to the numerous emerging needs and applications.
The focus of this track is on emerging and novel concepts, architectures and methodologies for social and more generally large networks analysis, tools and applications, including issues related to complex graphs,
semantics, big data, and security.

The topics of interest for this track include, but are not limited to:

Social Network Analysis - methods, algorithms, processes
Social graph processing / manipulation
Usage / implementation of Big Data algorithms
Avoiding fragmentation of the social graph
*Open cross-platform interactions
*Usage of Identity algorithms (OAuth, openID, etc.)
*Usage of Identity APIs
Dynamics and evolution patterns of social networks, trend prediction
Information diffusion in Social Networks

Social analytic tools
Approaches based on Semantic Web Technologies
Ontologies for managing social networks
Social networks and cultural information
Social Network Analysis of Terrorist Networks
Cyber surveillance for unlawful activities for critical infrastructure protection
Participatory surveillance

Social Networks and Security
Privacy-preserving Social network Analysis
Social Networks Analysis for security applications
Social network-based security measures and controls
Social Networks Analysis for identifying and assessing cyber risks
Security by means of Social Networks Analysis
Information security measures and controls, to help in identifying and assessing cyber risks
Architectures and methods for social network management
Social media search and management in large scale environments
Searching blogs, tweets, and other social media
Frameworks and Methodologies for large scale Collaboration
Collective Awareness Platforms for Social (CAPS) and business innovation
Communities discovery and analysis in large scale online and offline social networks
Traffic prediction for dimensioning media applications

User-centric applications
Exploiting user mobility and geolocation
Ontology-based user profiling
Social and Ethical Issues in a Networked World
Human-powered community question answering and expert finding
Social, mobile, pervasive content sharing and live media distribution
Spam, opinions and adversarial interactions in social media
Personalisation for social interaction
