IEEE CAOS 2020

The Second IEEE INFOCOM Workshop on the
Communications and Networking Aspects of Online Social Networks

April 2020 - Beijing, China

+++ Fast-track publication of selected papers in Online Social Networks and Media Journal (Elsevier)

===============================================================================
===============================================================================

Online Social Networks (OSNs) are a multidisciplinary research playground. On the one hand, they represent a challenging environment for researchers working in academia and industry to develop the next generation of networking platforms and their services. At the same time, the digital footprints that people leave behind through OSNs provide a unique source to investigate and understand (by exploiting BigData analytics) people's behavior, human relationships, and societal phenomena such as epidemics spreading, terrorist networks, the diffusion of opinions, the pulse of a city, the evolution of migrations, etc.

IEEE CAOS focuses on (i) understanding the behavior of OSN systems, and OSN users; (ii) designing OSN mechanisms, services and applications for the benefit of users, (iii) controlling the use, and possibly, misuse of OSN services; (iv) predicting the way information spreads in OSN and users acquire or lose importance and influence in their local and global communities.

CAOS aims to provide a reference forum targeted not only to the community of researcher working on networking technologies for OSN, but it aims at engaging a multidisciplinary community of researchers working at the intersection between computer networking, complex networks, Big Data analytics, focusing on network technologies and abstractions for OSN. Therefore, the workshop also welcomes submissions applying a wide range of (computer- and network-science) techniques and tools to OSN for investigating the properties and roles of the network of (online) social relationships in the various sectors of the society (e.g., politics, economics, finance, health, entertainment).

Topics include, but are not limited to:

- Communications challenges in OSNs;
- Platforms, protocols, and applications for OSNs;
- Decentralized, mobile, and location-based OSNs;
- Trust, reputation, privacy, and security in OSNs;
- Adversarial-aware analysis of OSN data;
- Dynamics of trends, information and opinion diffusion in OSNs;
- Recommendations and advertising in OSNs;
- Social Search in OSNs;
- Measurement, analysis, and modeling of popular online social networks;
- BigData analysis of OSNs seen as complex networked systems;
- Information extraction and search in OSNs;
- Complex-network analysis of OSNs;
- Measurement, analysis, and modeling of networked users' behavior through OSNs data;
- Analysis of the use of OSNs in the urban context;
- Network challenges of crowdsourcing in OSNs;
- Network challenges in multidisciplinary applications of OSNs (economics, medicine, society, politics, homeland security, etc.);
- AI technologies applied to OSNs modeling and analysis.


## PAPER FORMAT AND SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS

Papers must be submitted electronically as PDF files, formatted for 8.5x11-inch paper. The length of the paper must be no more than 6 pages in the IEEE double-column format (10-pt font), including references and everything. Papers should neither have been published elsewhere nor being currently under review by another conference or journal. The reviews will be single blind. At least one of the authors of every accepted paper must register and present the paper at the workshop. Accepted papers will be published in the combined INFOCOM 2020 Workshop proceedings and will be submitted to IEEE Xplore.
