• [Social Networks, Deadline Nov. 13] Call for Papers in ICC 2023

    From vincentthunder2011@gmail.com@21:1/5 to All on Tue Nov 8 03:34:49 2022
    SCOPE AND MOTIVATION Recently, social network research has advanced
    rapidly with the prevalence of online social applications and mobile
    social communications systems. Metaverse has emerged as one of the
    future Internet for business, socialization, entertainment, and
    education in fully connected, immersive, and engaging online 3D virtual experiences. Nevertheless, the ongoing pandemic via contact social
    networks has caused tremendous human life and economic loss around the
    world, and infodemic is one of the major social impacts that make people difficult to discriminate trustworthy sources, from false and
    manipulative information sources. Therefore, researchers are
    increasingly interested in addressing a wide spectrum of challenges in
    social networks, such as developing social-aware algorithms for
    communications systems, identifying the topological common structures
    and information/influence flows, analyzing the social media and
    evolutions of social graphs, and exploiting location-based and
    contextual information embedded in mobile social networks to create
    innovative applications. Due to its increasing prevalence and
    interdisciplinary nature, social networks have also attracted intensive research interests across multiple disciplines, including artificial intelligence, blockchain, big data analytics, information security and
    privacy protection, psychology, and marketing. In light of the above
    crucial needs, Selected Areas in Communication Symposium in Social
    Networks will serve as a forum for researchers and technologists from
    academia, industry, and government to discuss the state-of-the-art,
    present their cutting-edge innovations and contributions, and set future directions in all aspects of social networks.

    The symposium seeks original contributions in the following
    topical areas, plus others that are not explicitly listed but are
    closely related.

    Artificial Intelligence for social networks and applications Social
    network analysis on epidemic diagnosis and asymptomatic infector
    tracking for COVID-19 and other pandemic Convergence and interplay
    between Metaverse and the underlying communication networks
    Infrastructure, platform, protocol design, and optimization for mobile
    social networks, social vehicular networks, mobile social clouds, social Internet-of-Things, and new paradigm of future social-aware
    communication networks Social network graph modeling, analysis,
    measurements, and experiments using big data for a better understanding
    of social network influence, reputation, recommendation, and community structure Data mining, machine learning, information retrieval, signal processing, and artificial intelligence in social media and social
    contexts Trusted networking, privacy and security, user behaviors and
    dynamics, and digital right management for big data from social networks Innovative social networks applications and services to mobile Internet, multimedia networks, mobile commerce, cyber-physical systems, and their potential social, economic, and cultural impacts Multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary research on social networks

    The authors of selected papers from this symposium will be invited
    to submit an extended version of their work for fast-track review
    and possible publication in the IEEE Open Journal of the
    Communications Society
