3rd Workshop on Computational Social Networks 
CSoNet 2014 - http://csonet14.vcu.edu/
Dec. 21, 2014, Maui, Hawaii, In conjunction with COCOA '14
==========================================================

Computing in social network science has recently become one of the central themes across mathematical science, information and communication technology, which attracts a significant interest from researchers in mathematics, computer science, system science, and social science. The objective of this workshop is to advance and promote the theoretical foundation, mathematical aspects as well as applications of social computing.

The topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
 * Mathematical modelling and analysis
 * Real-world complex systems
 * Information retrieval in social contexts, political analysts
 * Network structure analysis
 * Network dynamics optimization
 * Complex network robustness and vulnerability
 * Information diffusion models and analysis
 * Security and privacy
 * Searching in complex networks
 * Efficient algorithms

IMPORTANT DATES
------------------
 * Paper submission due:          July 24, 2014
 * Notification of Acceptance:    August 21, 2014
 * Camera-ready:                September 04, 2014

PUBLICATION
----------------
Accepted papers will be published in LNCS - Springer along with main papers of COCOA 2014. Extended version of selected papers will be published in a special issue of Computational Social Networks journal by Springer.

SUBMISSION
----------------
Authors who are interested in the above topics can submit their unpublished work to this workshop via Easychair using LNCS style. The maximum length of paper (including references) is 10 pages.
