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

 

December 15, 2010, Bangalore (India)

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

 

Topics:

The workshop's topics of interest include (but are not limited to the following):

 

Algorithms for data mining social networks, graphs, links

Applications of social network data mining to address a real world business scenario

Anomaly detection in network based applications like intrusion detection in telecommunication

Fraud detection in telecommunication network

Mobile social networks

Change Management (managing change, post-merger integration, identifying key enablers)

Talent Management (hiring and career development)

Leadership Development (decision-making, identifying leaders)

Intra-Organizational Coordination (supporting coordination and information flows among organizational members and units)

Inter-Organizational Coordination (supporting collaboration in consortia, industrial districts, inter-organizational alliances)

 

Accepted papers of the workshop would be available via IEEE Xplore digital library.

Selected papers will be invited for a fast review also at the International Journal of Knowledge-Based Organizations.
