Scope & Topics
The 5th International Conference on Computational Social Network (CSoNet 2016) is inherently interdisciplinary as it attempts to integrate across different disciplines such as social science, computer science, networks science, and mathematics in pursuit of a fundamental understanding of computational social networks. The conference welcomes all submissions which 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.

The scope of the conference includes (but is not limited to) the following topics:

- Real-world complex networks
- Social network design and architecture
- Mathematical modelling and analysis of real-world social platforms
- Information retrieval in social contexts, political analysts
- Community structure detection and analysis
- Network structure analysis and dynamics optimization
- Information diffusion models and techniques
- Complex network analysis, structure robustness and vulnerability
- Security and privacy in online social networks
- Efficient algorithms for social computing
- Social trends and network behaviours
- Reputation and trust issues in social media
- Social influence, recommendation and media
- Big data analysis on online social networks
- Applications of complex social network analysis

The proceedings of CSoNet 2016 will be published by Springer in series Lecture Notes in Computer Science(LNCS) and will be distributed at the conference. Selected papers can be invited to publish in special issues of Journal of Combinatorial Optimization (ISI) and Computational Social Networks (Springer).
Please kindly help us to forward this email to your colleagues/Researchers/students in order to promote the conference.
