Cybernetics Society
Publication: IEEE
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
