Subject: Call for Papers: 2010 International Conference on Advances in
Social Network Analysis and Mining (ASONAM 2010) at Odense Denmark on August
9-11, 2010

 *CALL for PAPERS:  ASONAM 2010  in conjunction with OSINT-WM
2010 ( )*

Dear Colleague

The study of social networks originated in social and business communities.
In recent years, social network research has advanced significantly; the
development of sophisticated techniques for Social Network Analysis and
Mining (SNAM) has been highly influenced by the online social Web sites,
email logs, phone logs and instant messaging systems, which are widely
analyzed using graph theory and machine learning techniques. People perceive
the Web increasingly as a social medium that fosters interaction among
people, sharing of experiences and knowledge, group activities, community
formation and evolution. This has led to a rising prominence of SNAM in
academia, politics, homeland security and business. This follows the pattern
of known entities of our society that have evolved into networks in which
actors are increasingly dependent on their structural embedding.

The international conference on Advances in Social Network Analysis and
Mining (ASONAM 2010) will primarily provide an interdisciplinary venue that
will bring together practitioners and researchers from a variety of SNAM
fields to promote collaborations and exchange of ideas and practices. ASONAM
2010 is intended to address important aspects with a specific focus on the
emerging trends and industry needs associated with social networking
analysis and mining. The conference solicits experimental and theoretical
works on social network analysis and mining along with their application to
real life situations.

General areas of interest to ASONAM 2010 include information science and
mathematics, communication studies, business and organizational studies,
sociology, psychology, anthropology, applied linguistics, biology and
