Call For Papers

Sixth Social Networking Workshop at the International Conference on Communication Systems and Networks (COMSNETS) 2019
Bengaluru, India | Friday, 11 January 2019

Online social networks (OSNs) today have widely varying applications, including supporting information and resource sharing, aiding discovery of globally dispersed individuals, and many others. The Social Networking Workshop strives to bring together researchers from academia and industry to present developments on both research and engineering challenges associated with OSNs.

The special theme for the 6th version of the workshop is *Social Media and Health*. Web and social media analytics have long been used to monitor, study, and perform interventions in the health domain. Traditional usage includes tracking spread of diseases and epidemics, such as Zika and Ebola. In recent years, social media is being used in many novel healthcare applications, ranging from detection of non-communicable diseases (e.g., substance abuse, depression), to studying the demographics of affected population, to tracking spread of health-related misinformation through social media.

== Topics of Interest ==

The workshop invites original contributions related to Online Social Networks. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

Health analytics in social media
Automatic discovery and analysis of Web-based social networks
Visualization of social networks
Link topology and site hierarchy in social networks
Security, privacy and trust analysis in social networks
Web-based cooperative work and social intelligence
Formation and support of knowledge communities
Social network evolution and growth mechanisms
Information diffusion and knowledge transfer in social networks
Epidemics and rumours in social networks
Community question-answering
Anomaly and outlier detection in social networks
Multiplex and interdependent social networks
Computational models and agent-based simulations of social networks
High-dimensional social network analytics
Big data techniques for social networks
Game-theoretic strategies for social networks
Temporal and spatial social networks
HCI for social media
Credibility analysis of social media content

== Submission Guidelines ==

Submissions must be original work not under review at any other workshop, conference, or journal. Submissions must not exceed 6 pages (and not be less than 3 pages) in the IEEE conference proceedings format (two-column format), including all figures, tables, and references. Submission must be in English, and in PDF format. Reviews will be single-blind: authors' names and affiliations should be included in the submission.

All accepted workshop papers will appear in COMSNETS 2019 proceedings, and submitted to the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. At least one author of every accepted paper should register for the conference and attend the workshop to present the paper.
