Call for Papers

For more than a century, social networks have been studied in a variety of
disciplines including sociology, anthropology, psychology, and economics.
The Internet, the social Web, and other large-scale, socio-technological
infrastructures have triggered a growing interest and significant
methodological advancements in social network analysis and mining. Method
development in graph theory, statistics, data mining and machine learning,
and statistical mechanics is inspired by new research problems and, in
turn, opens up further possibilities for application. These spiraling
trends have led to a rising prominence of social network analysis and
mining methods and tools in academia, politics, security, and business.

The international conference series on Advances in Social Network Analysis
and Mining (ASONAM) provides an interdisciplinary venue that brings
together researchers and practitioners from a broad variety of fields to
promote collaborations and exchange of ideas and practices. ASONAM is
intended to address important aspects with a specific focus on emerging
trends and industry needs. The conference solicits empirical, experimental,
methodological, and theoretical research reporting original and unpublished
results on social network analysis and mining along with applications. More
specialized topics within ASONAM 2018 include, but are not limited to:

   - Data collection and quality
   - Big data and scalability
   - Deep learning and embeddings
   - Statistical learning
   - Algorithms and techniques
   - Visualization
   - Modeling and simulation


   - Centrality and roles
   - Community detection
   - Link prediction
   - Information diffusion
   - Influence propagation
   - Anomaly detection
   - Network macro structures
   - Network evolution
   - Emergence
   - Privacy and security
   - Collective behavior
   - Crowd sourcing

*Application domains*

   - Online and offline social networks
   - Multirelational, multidimensional, multi-aspect, multilayer networks
   - Time-evolving networks
   - Probabilistic networks
   - Semantic networks
   - Social geography and spatial networks
   - Social, cultural, and cyber anthropology
   - Policy impact and analysis
   - Networks in biology and ecology
   - Digital Humanities

To fully embrace the fast-growing and vigorously dynamic trend of social
network approaches and applications, ASONAM 2018 is eager to consider any
breakthroughs in social network analysis and mining in the broadest
possible sense.

General areas of interest to ASONAM 2018 include information science and
mathematics, communication studies, business and organizational studies,
sociology, psychology, anthropology, applied linguistics, biology and

The papers will be reviewed and assessed by the program committee. Full
paper manuscripts must be in English with a length of 8 pages using the
IEEE two-column template. We solicit also short paper with a maximum length
of 4 pages. Submissions should include the title, author(s),
affiliation(s), e-mail address(es), and abstract on the first page.

EasyChair submission link:

Papers will be accepted for the conference based on the reviewers' comments
on their originality, timeliness, significance, relevance, and clarity of
presentation. A Best Paper Award ceremony will be organized at the banquet.
If the paper is accepted, the paper will appear in the proceedings of the
conference if one author presents the paper at the conference and at least
one author registers as a full conference participant.


Accepted and presented papers will be included in the Conference
Proceedings and forwarded for inclusion in IEEE Computer Society Digital
Library (CSDL), IEEE eXplore, and the ACM Digital Library. The conference
proceedings will be submitted for El indexing through INSPEC by the IEEE.
Proceedings will be included in several indexes, e.g., Web of Science,
SCOPUS, etc.
