Within this framework, the network properties of OSNEM can be used to capture multiple phenomena related to OSNEM, at different logical layers, from a technical perspective (e.g., OSNEM data management and information diffusion), as well as a societal perspective (e.g., the OSNEM users’ social structures). Moreover, the analysis of network dynamics represents one of the biggest challenges that emerged in recent years within the network science community. Therefore, OSNeD will focus on the analysis of OSNEM from the standpoint of its network properties and dynamics at all scales, from macro- to meso- (e.g., community) to micro (e.g., ego network) scales. It will be particularly interesting to highlight the impact of network properties and dynamics on emerging phenomenon, such as diffusion of information, the acquisition of the role of influencer, trust among users, polarization of opinions, diffusion of fake news, etc. The OSNeD workshop aims at engaging a multidisciplinary community. The workshop also welcomes submissions applying a wide range of (computer- and network-science) techniques and tools to OSNEM for investigating the properties and roles of the network of (online) social relationships in the various sectors of the society (e.g., politics, economics, finance, health, entertainment). Within the general focus of the workshop on OSNEM network properties and dynamics, topics include: - OSNEM platforms, protocols and applications; - Decentralized, mobile and location-based OSNEM; - Dynamic Analysis of OSNEM - Trust, reputation, privacy and security in OSNEM; - Recommendations and advertising in OSNEM; - Measurement, analysis and modeling of popular OSNEM platforms (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Flickr, etc.); - BigData analysis of OSNEM seen as large- meso- or micro-scale complex networked systems; - Information extraction and search in OSNEM; - Complex-network analysis of OSNEM; - Measurement, analysis and modeling of social networked users' behavior through OSNEM data; - Analysis of the use of OSNEM in the urban context; - Network challenges of crowdsourcing is OSNEM; - Network challenges in multidisciplinary applications of OSNEM (economics, medicine, society, politics, homeland security, etc.) - OSNEM event detection; - Evolutionary community / cluster discovery; - Dynamic network generative models; - Dynamic network embedding; - Dynamics of trends, information and opinion diffusion in OSNEM PAPER FORMAT AND SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS ________________________________________ Papers must be submitted in PDF according to the new ACM format published in ACM guidelines (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.acm.org_publications_proceedings-2Dtemplate&d=DwIDaQ&c=pZJPUDQ3SB9JplYbifm4nt2lEVG5pWx2KikqINpWlZM&r=uXI5O6HThk1ULkPyaT6h2Ws3RKNKSY__GQ4DuS9UHhs&m=m94j3oN7At-czqN36fiOOH0KcnmMQD0Q9bT8snzxV7Q&s=JfUBBKqjtAmCBvZ24TPaMqer6cK7gkDmYBmXUILW2lw&e= ), selecting the generic “sigconf” sample. We accept two types of submissions, i.e., full papers and "disruptive" papers. Full papers can be up to six (6) pages, plus 2 additional pages if needed. "Disruptive" papers will be of maximum 2 pages. They would primarily propose a disruptive idea in the framework of the workshop topics. A disruptive idea should be really novel. So, for instance, working on improving the quality on an already existing approach is not disruptive (usually), while proposing a totally new problem addressing a particularly new challenge, is disruptive. Disruptive papers will be evaluated by the PC, according to a standard review process. Both regular and disruptive (accepted) papers will be included in the workshops proceedings, which will be published as companion proceedings of The Web Conference. Submissions must be in English. Papers should neither have been published elsewhere nor being currently under review by another conference or journal. Submissions that do not follow these guidelines may be rejected without review. Please follow the submission link at: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__easychair.org_&d=DwIDaQ&c=pZJPUDQ3SB9JplYbifm4nt2lEVG5pWx2KikqINpWlZM&r=uXI5O6HThk1ULkPyaT6h2Ws3RKNKSY__GQ4DuS9UHhs&m=m94j3oN7At-czqN36fiOOH0KcnmMQD0Q9bT8snzxV7Q&s=KqcR92iT314h0ojj_W3HsfYbeYrrmIuYjF5kqNCkfGI&e= conferences/submission_new.cgi?a=16699902 and Select the full name of the workshop in the submission list. Please also refer to the submission guidelines are the same as for the main conference and are available here https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www2018.thewebconf.org_call-2Dfor-2Dpapers_&d=DwIDaQ&c=pZJPUDQ3SB9JplYbifm4nt2lEVG5pWx2KikqINpWlZM&r=uXI5O6HThk1ULkPyaT6h2Ws3RKNKSY__GQ4DuS9UHhs&m=m94j3oN7At-czqN36fiOOH0KcnmMQD0Q9bT8snzxV7Q&s=ZGMnQvegR6kZSHyoiYyOWqjr2TSXCq2yfG8DaU-z0g0&e= #guideline. At least one author of an accepted paper must register, attend the workshop and present the paper. AWARDS AND EDITORIAL FOLLOW-UPS _______________________________ We will consider to assign a best paper award, and to organize a special issue on the Elsevier Online Social Networks and Media Journal (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.journals&d=DwIDaQ&c=pZJPUDQ3SB9JplYbifm4nt2lEVG5pWx2KikqINpWlZM&r=uXI5O6HThk1ULkPyaT6h2Ws3RKNKSY__GQ4DuS9UHhs&m=m94j3oN7At-czqN36fiOOH0KcnmMQD0Q9bT8snzxV7Q&s=UYlvB9q5B2NcCayUERi36rgUSQpkY-8wz0mx4mcZuNA&e= . elsevier.com/online-social-networks-and-media/), soliciting submissions of extended versions of particularly promising papers.
