ISMW (FRUCT'26) 2020 : FRUCT'26 session on Intelligence, Social Media and Web
Call For Papers
The FRUCT session on Intelligence, Social Media and Web (ISMW) will be held in Yaroslavl (Russia) on 23-24 April 2020
This session aims to discuss the fundamental and applied problems in social media, artificial intelligence, natural language and multimedia processing, and crowdsourcing technologies. The main goal of this event is to unite researchers who study social interactions on the Internet, as well as researchers from the related fields without whose contribution the study of social networks would become difficult or impossible. Our task is to discuss how to analyze the digital traces left behind by a person's activities and what conclusions can be made based on this analysis.
We welcome researchers from both humanities and technical sciences who study social networks and social interactions on the Internet, the relationship between the virtual and real-world identities. The task is to create an interdisciplinary platform for the integration of artificial intelligence and data mining approaches with sociological, psychological and linguistic studies. The event focuses on two main points: (1) integration of data mining and social mining approaches with the approaches from humanities and other technical disciplines, (2) integration of the natural language/multimedia processing with the personalized services on the Web.
The session continues a series of events including the 1st Intensive Social Media Week (2015), the AINL-ISMW FRUCT conference (2015) and the ISMW FRUCT school and conference (2016), ISMW seminars 2017-2019.
Young scientists and researchers from scientific centers, students and graduates, as well as industrial partners are welcome to participate.
Topics of interest include the following subject areas:
• Social Mining
• Deception Detection and Personality Recognition
• Authorship and Profiling
• Social Copying Detection
• Social Media Metrics

Young scientists and researchers from scientific centers, students and graduates, as well as industrial partners are welcome to participate.

Call for papers and presentations

- Short papers (min 2 pages, max 6 pages), deadline February 28, 2020;
- Poster or demo summary (min 200 words, max 4 pages), by April 13, 2020.
Traditionally FRUCT doesn't provide deadline extension, as instead, we have early-bird submissions mechanism. But if authors need a couple of extra days to finalize a paper, please send in advance email to info(at)fruct.org and we will try to arrange it so that you can finalize your work.
The review process is organized as follows:
- Full papers get at least 3 reviews by the Technical Committee
- Short papers and Poster/demo summaries get at least 2 reviews by the Technical Committee
- The review process is organized as the single-blind review
- The acceptance rate is below 45% (5 years)
- Authors of selected best papers will be invited to submit extended versions of their papers to be published in partner journals.
Please note that some papers submitted as Full Papers can be recommended for publication in ACM section (AKA WiP) of the proceedings. ACM section includes papers that have passed the quality check but didn't get in top 40% of the papers based on the average score. This will be a normal publication, but with less guaranteed indexing (read more: https://www.fruct.org/Full_vs_WiP). To increase your chance to get your paper accepted as Full Paper, we recommend to submit it by the Early bird submission deadline, as this way you always will have a second chance to improve the paper and get another round of review. The conference language is English.
