    Call for Papers

    IEEE Global Communications Conference (GLOBECOM) SAC on Social Networks

    (December 9 to 13, 2018 in Abu Dhabi)

    Scope and Motivation:

    Recently, social network research has advanced rapidly with the prevalence of the online social applications and mobile social communications systems. Online social networks have generated a significant share of the Internet traffic and become a
    dominant form of social interactions on the Internet. In addition to utilizing a desktop computer to write blogs, upload photos and chat with friends, an explosively increasing number of people are now used to share personal contents to friends on the
    fly with mobile devices, thanks to the development of broadband wireless networks and location sensing technologies. Facing this trend, 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 static topological common structures and information/influence flows, analyzing the dynamic social media and evolutions of social graphs, and exploiting location-based and
    contextual information embedded in mobile social networks to create innovative applications. In light of the above crucial needs, Selected Areas in Communication Symposium in Social Networks will serve as a forum for researchers and technologists to
    discuss the state-of-the-art, present their contributions, and set future directions in social networks.

    Main Topics of Interest:

    In light of this trend, Selected Areas on Communication Symposium in Social Networks solicits original research papers on topics including, but not limited to:

    Applying social network analysis to network design and distributed computing Graphical modeling and analysis of networked and computing systems
    Social network analysis to facilitate cognition and intelligence in networking and computing
    Leveraging social network analysis to big data analytics, machine learning, multi-agent systems and artificial intelligence
    Data analytics related to network science
    Artificial intelligence (machine learning) related to networks, communications, and multi-agent systems
    Cognition and related computing in general networking domain
    Discovery of communities in large-scale social networks
    Analysis of dynamics and trends in the evolutions of social networks
