[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

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
