Call for PAPER Multidisciplinary Track

The IEEE/ACM International Conference on Advances in Social Network  
Analysis and Mining (ASONAM) provides a premier interdisciplinary  
forum to bring together researchers and practitioners from different  
disciplines using social network analysis and mining. ASONAM hosts  
presentation of original research results, as well as exchange and  
dissemination of innovative, practical development experiences. ASONAM  
2018 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.
Within the general conference, the ASONAM 2018 multidisciplinary  
track will include the intersections of social network analysis and  
mathematics, communication, business management, statistics,  
scientometrics, sociology, psychology, anthropology, history,  
archeology, political sciences, applied linguistics, chemistry,  
neuroscience, biology, physics, and health.
