This text contains 2 calls. You should scroll down to view all the calls:
  -Call for Panels, Exhibits & Demos    Due April 8, 2012
  -Call for Tutorials                   Due April 1, 2012

Call for Panels, Exhibits & Demos
---------------------------------
ASONAM 2012 will hold a panels, exhibits and demos section which
intends to demonstrate the potential and the diversity of advanced
research into social network analysis and mining. The aim of the call
is to bring together a mix of substantial achievements as well as
research in its embryonic stage of development. Ideas, prototypes and
software that can be demonstrated are all welcome.

A panel proposal should be submitted by the panel moderator. The
proposal should tackle a state of the art evolving and of increasing
interest problem in the area of social network analysis and mining.
The proposal should include a title, a brief up to two pages
description and a list of the potential panelists who are experts in
the field and are expected to attend ASONAM 2012.

The exhibits and demos call is set to attract presenters from a
diverse range of disciplines, technologies, and domains. The target
audience will be made up of academics, researchers, various scientific
communities, private enterprise, and government representatives from
around the world. This call is open particularly to organizations that
are involved in the long term development and research of social
network analysis and mining technologies. We would be pleased to
receive proposals from university researchers, research institutes and
centres, not-for-profit organizations, public authorities, private
companies, non-government organizations independent of the size of
department or organization.

The exhibition will be a key element of the conference and will be set
up for the duration of the conference. It is hoped that delegates will
not only learn about cutting edge social network analysis and mining
tools and techniques but that they will be stimulated by the visual
representations that they view as they walk around the exhibits and
demonstrations. Proposals that offer delegates a hands-on walkthrough
capability via a demonstration will be looked upon favourably.
Scenario-based proposals will also give delegates the ability to grasp
the application of the idea, proof of concept, or operational
software. Methodological rigour behind the demonstrations should also
be an element of the presentation that exhibitors can provide
delegates who are more interested in how the process or software
works, than the actual software itself.

The Chairs are willing to consider proposals that can demonstrate the
potential of social network analysis and mining with a view to
specific contexts and application areas which can be enriched by such
analysis. The panels, exhibits and demonstrations can be at the proof
of concept level involve mock-ups of proposed implementation, or
fully-fledged and tested systems. It is hoped that participants can
receive critical feedback about their solutions and research
achievements from delegates who themselves might be users of such
social network analysis technology. Presentations can feature
preliminary results or final outcomes.

Panels, exhibits and demonstrations should:

    * show conceptual and methodological elements, as well as solid
preliminary results from cutting edge research and development work.
They should be of interest to a wide audience of specialists from
multiple disciplines (computer science and engineering) as well as to
non specialists (e.g. potential customers of social network analysis
tools, and the media);
    * contain strong visual aspects and, if possible, allow hands-on
experiences for visitors. They should be based scenarios or contexts
so that delegates can grasp the usefulness and application of the
software or process developments. The objects, artefacts and applied
technologies should largely tell their own story. Exhibits that show
mainly mathematical results without a plain English description are
discouraged;
    * be attractive and captivating, not based purely on poster and
screen display, although both posters and screen displays will be
considered. Posters should only be used as eye-catchers and mainly be
illustrative application areas, with textual content minimised. Videos
are encouraged or scrolling powerpoint presentations. Availability of
physical prototypes, interactivity and originality will be taken into
consideration for selection.

Selection Criteria

Exhibit proposals will be assessed on the basis of the following criteria:

1. Is the research of a long term nature in the domain of social
network analysis and mining?
2. Visual impact, quality of visitor experience and originality. Does
the exhibit look attractive? Is the content clear and of relevance to
the audience?
3. Is the exhibit easy to understand. Does it efficiently illustrate
the foundational research work and its potential transformative impact
on application contexts? How easy is it to understand what is going
on? What is the level of interactivity? How exciting will be the
'visitor experience'? What is original in the proposed exhibit?
Logistics

The following will be available free of charge to successful applicants:

    * the space allocated to your panel, exhibit or demonstration;
    * walls and construction elements;
    * some furniture (1 brochure rack, 1 demonstration table and 2 chairs);
    * technical arrangements and infrastructure (LAN, bandwidth
needed, electrical power, lighting, etc)
    * Internet access
    * 1 printed poster A0 format board to stick visuals onto
    * 1 PC Screen

The following items are NOT provided and the costs must be borne by
the applicant:

    * Insurance costs. The conference cannot be held liable for lost,
damaged or stolen property.

Deadlines and How to Submit Proposal

The deadline for submission of exhibit proposals is 8th April 2012.
The proposals should be no longer than 1000 words addressing the
above-mentioned criteria. Please submit your proposals to the Panels,
Exhibits, and Demos Chairs, Hasan Davulcu (HasanDavulcu AT asu DOT
edu) of Arizona State University and Katina Michael (katina AT uow DOT
edu DOT au) of the University of Wollongong. Please provide URLs in
your proposal that the Chairs can visit in making their decision with
the review panel. The URLs might include example posters to be
presented, working software solutions, presentations or proof of
concepts, among other items.

Applicants will be notified of the outcome of the selection via email
by 10th May 2012.

There will be a best exhibitors award announced at the conclusion of
the exhibition section.


Call for Tutorials
------------------
ASONAM has established itself as the world's premier research
conference in social network analysis and mining. ASONAM 2012 provides
a leading forum for presentation of original research results, as well
as exchange and dissemination of innovative, practical development
experiences. Besides the technical program, the conference will
feature workshops, tutorials, panels, demos, etc.

ASONAM 2012 welcomes proposals for short and long tutorials that focus
on new research directions and initiatives. The tutorials will be part
of the main conference technical program, and are free of charge to
the attendees of the conference. Tutorial presenter(s) will receive
complimentary registration; up to two free registrations will be
provided per tutorial. Though not guaranteed, one presenter per
tutorial may receive up to $750 to partially cover travel expenses;
this will depend on the final budget of the conference and will be
finalized in June/July 2012.

We invite proposals for tutorials from active researchers and
experienced tutors. Ideally, a tutorial will cover the
state-of-the-art research, development and applications in a specific
social network analysis and mining direction, and stimulate and
facilitate future work. A tutorial should be general and comprehensive
rather than a repetition of presenter(s) own research achievements.
High preference will be given to tutorials on interdisciplinary
directions, novel and emerging applications. A proposal should cover
the following items.

    * Title
    * Abstract (up to 150 words)
    * Rationale of presenting the tutorial at ASONAM 2012 (up to 250 words)
    * Target audience and prerequisites (up to 100 words)
    * A list of forums with their time, locations and estimate of the
number of attendees if the tutorial or a similar/highly related
tutorial has been presented by the same author(s) before, and
highlight the similarity/difference between those and the one proposed
for ASONAM 2012 (up to 150 words for each entry)
    * A list of tutorials on the same/similar/highly related topics
given by other people, and highlight the difference between yours and
theirs (up to 150 words for each entry)
    * A list of other tutorials given by the authors, please list the
titles, the presenters, the forums, locations and estimate of the
number of attendees only
    * Tutors’ short bio and their expertise related to the tutorial
(up to 150 words per tutor)
    * An outline of the tutorial in the form of a bullet list (up to one page)
    * Length of the tutorial: short (1.5-2 hours) or long (3-4 hours).
