    Call for Papers
    The 2018 IEEE/ACM International Conference on Advances in Social Networks Analysis and Mining (ASONAM 2018)
    Barcelona, Spain, 28-31 August, 2018

    For more than a century, social networks have been studied in a variety of disciplines including sociology, anthropology, psychology, and economics. The Internet, the social Web, and other large-scale, socio-technological infrastructures have triggered a
    growing interest and significant methodological advancements in social network analysis and mining. Method development in graph theory, statistics, data mining and machine learning, and statistical mechanics is inspired by new research problems and, in
    turn, opens up further possibilities for application. These spiraling trends have led to a rising prominence of social network analysis and mining methods and tools in academia, politics, security, and business.

    The international conference series on Advances in Social Network Analysis and Mining (ASONAM) provides an interdisciplinary venue that brings together researchers and practitioners from a broad variety of fields to promote collaborations and exchange of
    ideas and practices. ASONAM is intended to address important aspects with a specific focus on emerging trends and industry needs. The conference solicits empirical, experimental, methodological, and theoretical research reporting original and unpublished
    results on social network analysis and mining along with applications. More specialized topics within ASONAM 2018 include, but are not limited to:

    Data collection and quality
    Big data and scalability
    Deep learning and embeddings
    Statistical learning
    Algorithms and techniques
    Modeling and simulation
    Centrality and roles
    Community detection
    Link prediction
    Information diffusion
    Influence propagation
    Anomaly detection
    Network macro structures
    Network evolution
    Privacy and security
    Collective behavior
    Crowd sourcing
    Application domains
    Online and offline social networks
    Multirelational, multidimensional, multi-aspect, multilayer networks Time-evolving networks
    Probabilistic networks
    Semantic networks
    Social geography and spatial networks
    Social, cultural, and cyber anthropology
    Policy impact and analysis
    Networks in biology and ecology
    Digital Humanities
    To fully embrace the fast-growing and vigorously dynamic trend of social network approaches and applications, ASONAM 2018 is eager to consider any breakthroughs in social network analysis and mining in the broadest possible sense.

    General areas of interest to ASONAM 2018 include information science and mathematics, communication studies, business and organizational studies, sociology, psychology, anthropology, applied linguistics, biology and medicine.

    The papers will be reviewed and assessed by the program committee. Full paper manuscripts must be in English with a length of 8 pages using the IEEE two-column template. We solicit also short paper with a maximum length of 4 pages. Submissions should
    include the title, author(s), affiliation(s), e-mail address(es), and abstract on the first page.

    EasyChair submission link: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=asonam2018

    Papers will be accepted for the conference based on the reviewers' comments on their originality, timeliness, significance, relevance, and clarity of presentation. A Best Paper Award ceremony will be organized at the banquet. If the paper is accepted,
    the paper will appear in the proceedings of the conference if one author presents the paper at the conference and at least one author registers as a full conference participant.

    Accepted and presented papers will be included in the Conference Proceedings and forwarded for inclusion in IEEE Computer Society Digital Library (CSDL), IEEE eXplore, and the ACM Digital Library. The conference proceedings will be submitted for El
    indexing through INSPEC by the IEEE. Proceedings will be included in several indexes, e.g., Web of Science, SCOPUS, etc.
