4th International Conference on Computational Social Networks (CSoNet 2015)
August 4-6th, 2015 Beijing, China.
Call for Papers
In the last decade, there has been an explosive growth of research on
practical complex networks, a theme that is becoming pervasive in many
disciplines, ranging from mathematics and computer science to the social
and biological sciences. Typical structures in reality include internet
topologies, web graphs, peer-to-peer networks, biological networks,
economic networks and most commonly social networks. A lot of research
efforts have been made recently towards a deep understanding of real-world
social platforms. Computing in social science, as a result, has become one
of the central themes across mathematical science, information and
communication technology, which attracts significant interest from
researchers in mathematics, computer science, system science, and social
science. The objective of this conference is to advance and promote the
theoretical foundation, mathematical aspects, and applications of social

CSoNet 2015 is inherently interdisciplinary as it attempts to integrate
across different disciplines such as social science, computer science,
networks science, and mathematics in pursuit of an foundational
understanding of computational social networks. The conference welcomes all
submissions with focus on common principles, algorithms and tools that
govern social network structures/topologies, social interactions,
functionalities, security and privacy, network behaviours, information
diffusions and influence, social recommendation systems which are
applicable to all types of social networks and social media. There are two
submission types (in LNCS format):
  + Full Paper (up to 12 pages)
  + Extended Abstracts (up to 2 pages)

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the following:
  + Social network design and architecture
  + Mathematical modeling and analysis of real-world social platforms
  + Information retrieval in social contexts, political analysts
  + Social community structure detection and analysis
  + Network dynamics optimization
  + Information diffusion models and analysis
  + Security and privacy in online social networks
  + Efficient algorithms for social computing
  + Social trends and network behaviors
  + Reputation and trust issues in social media
  + Social influence, recommendation and media analysis
  + Big data analysis on online social networks

All accepted papers will be published in LNCS. Selected papers can be
invited to publish in special issues of Journal of Combinatorial
Optimization (ISI) and Computational Social Networks (Springer).

Important Dates
