You are invited to submit a research paper to - ACM/IEEE ASONAM 2013

The 2013 IEEE/ACM International Conference on Advances in Social
Networks Analysis and Mining

ASONAM 2013 (see http://asonam.cpsc.ucalgary.ca/index.php)
Niagara Falls, Canada, August 25-28, 2013

The study of social networks originated in social and business
communities. In recent years,
social network research has advanced significantly; the development of
sophisticated techniques
for Social Network Analysis and Mining (SNAM) has been highly
influenced by the online social Web sites,
email logs, phone logs and instant messaging systems, which are widely
analyzed using graph theory and
machine learning techniques. People perceive the Web increasingly as a
social medium that fosters
interaction among people, sharing of experiences and knowledge, group
activities, community formation
and evolution. This has led to a rising prominence of SNAM in
academia, politics, homeland security
and business. This follows the pattern of known entities of our
society that have evolved into networks
in which actors are increasingly dependent on their structural embedding.

The international conference on Advances in Social Network Analysis
and Mining (ASONAM 2013) will primarily
provide an interdisciplinary venue that will bring together
practitioners and researchers from a variety
of SNAM fields to promote collaborations and exchange of ideas and
practices. ASONAM 2013 is intended to
address important aspects with a specific focus on the emerging trends
and industry needs associated with
social networking analysis and mining. The conference solicits
experimental and theoretical works on social
network analysis and mining along with their application to real life
situations.

Submission Guidelines

For paper submission:
https://www.easychair.org/account/signin.cgi?conf=asonam2013

Papers reporting original and unpublished research results pertaining
to the above topics are solicited.
New full paper submission deadline is April 15, 2013. These papers
will follow an academic review process.
Full paper manuscripts must be in English with a maximum length of 8
pages (using the IEEE two-column
template). Submissions should include the title, author(s),
affiliation(s), e-mail address(es), tel/fax
numbers, abstract, and postal address(es) on the first page. Papers
should be submitted to the Conference
Submission System. If Web submission is not possible, manuscripts
should be sent as an attachment via email
to [log in to unmask] by April 15, 2013. The attachment must be in PDF
or Word .doc format.

This is an initial template to get you started formatting your paper.
The final submission will be done
based on IEEE CPS requirements. More information will be provided
later on this week. You will be asked
to guarantee that your submission meets IEEE CPS standards and you
will complete online copyright form
by following the link to be provided.

Since IEEE CPS will publish the proceedings of ASONAM 2013, all the
rules and regulations of IEEE CPS
will be applied as explained in the following link:
http://www.computer.org/portal/web/cscps/

Papers will be selected based on their originality, timeliness,
significance, relevance, and clarity of
presentation. Authors should certify that their papers represent
substantially new previously unpublished
work. Paper submission implies that the intent is for one of the
authors to present the paper if accepted
and that at least one of the authors register for a full conference fee.
