Third International Conference on Computational Aspects of Social Networks (CASoN 2011) Salamanca, Spain October 19-21, 2011 http://www.mirlabs.net/cason11 <../../../../cason11> http://www.mirlabs.org/cason11 Technically Sponsored by: - IEEE Systems Man and Cybernetics Society Spanish Chapter IEEE Spain IEEE IEEE Systems Man and Cybernetics Society (pending approval) Technically Supported by: - Technical Committee on Soft Computing of IEEE Systems Man and Cybernetics Society Publication: IEEE Objective: The International Conference on Computational Aspects of Social Networks organized in Salamanca, Spain brings together an interdisciplinary venue for social scientists, mathematicians, computer scientists, engineers, computer users, and students to exchange and share their experiences, new ideas, and research results about all aspects (theory, applications and tools) of intelligent methods applied to Social Network, and to discuss the practical challenges encountered and the solutions adopted. Industrial Workshop/Tutorials and conference sessions will allow individuals interested in the theory, methods, or applications of social network analysis to share ideas and explore common interests. Welcome to Salamanca, Spain and we look forward to seeing you during CASoN 2011! We solicit original research and technical papers not published elsewhere. The papers can be theoretical, practical and application, and cover a broad set of intelligent methods, with particular emphasis on Social Network computing. Methods such as (but not restricted to) : Neural Networks and Connectionist Models Evolutionary Algorithms Fuzzy Logic Knowledge Management Multi-valued Logic Semantic Networks Rough Sets Intelligent Agents Ontologies Reinforcement Learning Applications on Social Networks: Network evolution Network evolution and growth mechanisms. Online communities and computer networks. Information diffusion in social networks. Detection of communities by document analysis. Topology of real networks. Recommendation Information diffusion in social networks. Recommendations for product purchase, information acquisition and establishment of social relations. Impact of recommendation models on the evolution of the social network. Classification models and their application in social recommender systems. Advertisement models Economical impact of social network discovery. Social advertising. Use of social networks for marketing. Search in network Web page ranking informed by social media. Search algorithms on social networks. Collaborative Filtering. Security Anomaly detection in social network evolution. Data protection inside communities. Crime data mining and network analysis. Modeling trust and reputation in social networks. Misbehavior detection in communities. Network geography Geographical clusters, networks, and innovation. Social geography. International Collaborations in e-Social network. Web Automatic discovery and analysis of Web based social networks. Link Topology and Site Hierarchy. Web mining algorithms. Web communities. Web-Based Cooperative Work. Evaluation Test collection. Benchmark creation. Measures and methodologies.
