Special Issue on Computational Intelligence Paradigms in Recommender Systems and Online Social Networks

in Elsevier "Journal of Computational Science", IF: 1.748 (SCI/SCIE).

Computational Intelligence encompasses a number of nature-inspired computational methodologies, mainly artificial neural networks (ANNs), fuzzy sets, genetic algorithms (GAs), and their hybridizations, such as neuro-fuzzy computing and neo-fuzzy systems, for addressing real-world problems to which conventional modelling can be useless due to several reasons such as complexity, existent of uncertainties, and the stochastic nature of the processes. Computational Intelligence is a powerful methodology for a wide range of data analysis problems such as financial forecasting, industrial, scientific, and social media applications. The recent advances in computational intelligence have shown very promising results in industry, business, sciences and social media studies. Meanwhile, the online social networks (OSNs) such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and Instagram have become very popular and attracted many users from all around the world. Recommender systems in combination with OSNs have also produced new business opportunities, making the social impact of OSNs more critical for product marketing, establishing new connections and improving the user’s experience by personalization of the user’s contents. This has led to new diverse challenges for practitioners and researchers of OSNs and recommender systems in terms of large-scale social network interactions and diversity of social media data from a multitude of OSNs. Given the success of computational intelligence methods and techniques in big data analysis applications, it is expected that they can also be applied successfully in the analysis of large-scale raw data in OSNs. In this context, computational intelligence paradigms comprising of numerous branches including neural networks, swarm intelligence, expert systems, evolutionary computing, fuzzy systems, and artificial immune systems, can play a vital role in handling the different aspects of OSNs and recommender systems.

In this special issue, we invite researchers to contribute high-quality articles and surveys focusing on computational intelligence methods for recommenders systems and OSNs. The relevant topics of this special issue include but are not limited to:

Computational intelligence solutions for OSNs and recommendation in recommender systems
Computational intelligence in mobile-cloud based computing for social network recommendation services
Big data analytics for community activity prediction, management, and decision-making in OSNs
