Call For Papers
The 6th International Conference on Computational Social Networks (CSoNet 2017), August 3-5, 2017, Hong Kong, China. (co-located with COCOON 2017)
The 6th International Conference on Computational Social Networks (CSoNet 2017) provides a premier interdisciplinary forum to bring together researchers and practitioners from all fields of social networks such as network computing, social network/media analysis and mining for presentation of original research results, as well as exchange and dissemination of innovative, practical development experiences. CSoNet 2017 seeks to address emerging yet important computational problems with a focus on the fundamental background, theoretical technology development, and real-world applications associated with social network analysis, modelling and data mining. The conference welcomes all submissions with focus on common principles, algorithms and tools that govern social network structures/topologies, network 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.
The conference includes a main track and several special sessions. The scope of the main track 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
