IEEE International workshop on Business Applications of Social Network
Analysis - BASNA 2010

 

December 15, 2010, Bangalore (India)

http://www.basna.in <http://www.basna.in/>  

 

The aim of this workshop is to encourage multidisciplinary discussions
related to novel ideas and application geared towards analyzing social
network data. By bringing together researchers in the fields of Social
Network Analysis (SNA), data mining, and management studies, the workshop
will focus on identifying the "grey" areas of collaboration among their
respective disciplines:

- The role of data mining techniques in identifying scalable methods for the
extraction and organization of social relations for management research and
business practice

- The role of management research in guiding data mining efforts and SNA
metrics development towards theoretically-grounded discoveries about social
network emergence.

- The role of Social Network Analysis in developing and applying metrics and
tools for the mapping, evaluation, visualization, and design of social
relations in organizations.

 

Confirmed Keynotes:

- Prof Noshir Contractor, Northwestern University

- Dr Christian Posse, Principal Research Scientist, LinkedIn

- Prof Narahari, Indian Institute of Science
