***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** [WWW-LSNA 2012] Call For Participation The WWW Workshop on Large Scale Network Analysis (WWW-LSNA 2012) In conjunction with WWW 2012 April 16, 2012 Lyon, France Website: http://www.largenetwork.org Large network data are being produced by various applications in an ever growing rate, from social networks such as Facebook and Twitter, scientific citation networks such as CiteSeerX, to biological networks such as protein interaction networks. Network data analysis is crucial for exploiting the wealth of information encoded in such network data. An effective analysis of this data must take into account complex structure including social, temporal, and spatial dimensions, while an efficient analysis of such data requires scalable techniques. As a result, there has been increasing research in developing novel and scalable solutions for practical network analytics applications. This workshop will provide a forum for researchers to share new ideas and techniques for large scale network analysis. We invite submission of original research related to all aspects of large scale network analysis.
