1st International Workshop on Social Networks and Social Media Mining on the Web
in conjunction with DASFAA 2010
DASFAA2010, Tsukuba, Japan, April 1-4, 2010

Workshop Description:

Today the emergence of web-based communities and hosted services such as social networking sites,
wikis and folksonomies, brings in tremendous freedom of Web autonomy and facilitate collaboration
and knowledge sharing between users. Along with the interaction between users and computers,
social media are rapidly becoming an important part of our digital experience, ranging from digital
textual information to diverse multimedia forms. These aspects and characteristics constitute of
the core of second generation of Web.

A prominent challenge lies in modeling and mining this vast pool of data to extract, represent
and exploit meaningful knowledge and to leverage structures and dynamics of emerging social
networks residing in the social media. Social networks and social media mining combines data mining
with social computing as a promising direction and offers unique opportunities for developing
novel algorithms and tools ranging from text and content mining to link mining.

The 1st International Workshop on Social Networks and Social Media Mining on the Web in conjunction
with DASFAA 2010 will bring together the academia, researchers and industrial practitioners from
computer science, information systems, statistics, sociology, behavior science and organization
science discipline, and provide a forum for recent advances in the field of social networks and
social media, from the perspectives of data management and mining.

We solicit original and high quality submissions addressing all aspects of this field. The topics
of interest include, but are not limited to the following:
* Computational models for social media
* Query languages for social networks and social media
* Query processing and optimization
* Influence, trust, and privacy
* Search in social networks and social media
* Interoperability among social applications and social media
* Techniques for social-network and social-media analysis/mining
* Adversarial blogging and counter measures
* Link analysis and network structure discovery
* Community detection and evolution
* Blog search and retrieval
* Group interaction, collaboration, and recommendation
* Knowledge discovery (collective wisdom, trend analysis, and topic detection)
* Social aspects of Blogosphere
* Human interface and interaction techniques for social media

Submission Instruction:

Authors are invited to submit electronically original, English-language research contributions
not concurrently submitted elsewhere. All accepted papers will be published in a combined volume
of Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series published by Springer in the form of conference
post-proceedings. At the workshop site, informal on-site proceedings will be handed out as well.

All submitted papers should be Springer LNCS camera-ready format. The style files are available
from Springer LNCS site:
All submissions files should be in PDF formats. We employ the single blind review system
(in which the authors don't know the reviewers, but the reviewers know the authors). The number of
pages should not exceed 10 pages. Any papers more than 10 pages will be rejected.

Submission Website:

Please submit all manuscripts (research/industrial/demo papers) in PDF formats to the submission site:
