--------------------
ICFCA 2007 Workshop "Social Network Analysis and Conceptual Structures: Exploring Opportunities"
--------------------
http://camille.roth.free.fr/confs/icfcasna.html

in conjunction with The 5th International Conference on Formal Concept Analysis (ICFCA 2007)
Clermont-Ferrand, France, February 12-16, 2007
http://www.isima.fr/icfca07/


CALL FOR PAPERS

The recent years have seen a renewed interest in an interdisciplinary effort aiming at analyzing social networks, in which both mathematical sociology and computer science play a key role, relying altogether extensively on graph theory. This effort has mainly been fueled and supported by significant advances in computing capabilities and electronic data availability for several social systems: scientists, webloggers, online customers, computer-based collaboration-enhancing devices, inter alia.

In particular, knowledge networks, i.e. interaction networks where agents produce or exchange knowledge, are the focus of many current studies, both qualitative and quantitative. Among these, community-detection issues such as finding agents sharing sets of identical patterns are a key topic. Social network analysis is proficient in methods aimed at discovering, describing, and plausibly organizing various kinds of social communities. 

At the same time, conceptual structures can yield a fruitful insight in this regard, be it in relation to affiliation networks (actors belonging to the same organizations, participating in identical events) or to epistemic communities (i.e. agents dealing with identical topics, such as scientific communities or weblogs). And, indeed, some applications of concept (or Galois) lattices in sociology have been proposed since the early 1990s; yet, in that context social aspects of community structures are usually of prime interest: leaders, peripheral members, cooperation within and between different groups. 

On the other hand, conceptual structures are typically focused around taxonomies -- possibly useful to describe actors in terms of centers of interest, for instance -- rather than focused on interactions. More broadly, notions pertaining to social network analysis seem presently to remain somehow outside the mainstream research of the concept lattice community.

The aim of this workshop is to investigate the opportunities for formal concept analysis in social networks by proposing possible bridges between these frameworks and by presenting issues of mathematical sociology which could benefit from conceptual structures, so as to eventually facilitate collaboration between the two fields. Therefore, we particularly welcome submissions of the survey type describing the state of the art in any of the fields listed below along with submissions specifying a concrete problem that still needs an efficient solution. Submissions may but do not have to address the possible use of formal concept analysis in these fields.
