December 6-9, 2021. *SNAMS 2021 CFP:* Social network analysis is concerned with the study of relationships between social entities. The recent advances in internet technologies and social media sites, such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, have created outstanding opportunities for individuals to connect, communicate or comment on issues or events of their interests. Social networks are dynamic and evolving in nature; they also involve a huge number of users. Frequently, the information related to a certain concept is distributed among several servers. This brings numerous challenges to researchers, particularity in the data mining and machine learning fields. The purpose of International Conference on Social Networks Analysis, Management and Security(SNAMS-2021) is to provide a forum for researchers to present and discuss their work which is related to social network analysis. The SNAMS 2021 is col-located with the 8th IEEE International Symposium on Internet of Things: Systems, Management and Security (IoTSMS). SNAMS 2021 aims to investigate the opportunities and in all aspects of Social Networks. In addition, it seeks for novel contributions that help mitigating SNAMS challenges. That is, the objective of SNAMS 2021 is to provide the opportunity for students, scientists, engineers, and researchers to discuss and exchange new ideas, novel results and experience on all aspects of Social Networks. Researchers are encouraged to submit original research contributions in all major areas, which include, but not limited to: *SYSTEMS & INFRASTRUCTURE* Systems and algorithms for social search Infrastructure support for social networks and systems Dynamics and evolution patterns of large and complex networks Social properties in systems design Learnings from operational social networks Data Collection Big Data and Social Paradigms *ALGORITHMS AND MODELS* Deep Learning and Knowledge Discovery. Measurement and analysis of social and crowdsourcing systems Benchmarking, modeling, performance and workload characterization Modeling Social Networks and behavior Management of social network data Streaming algorithms for social data Knowledge and innovation networks Methods for social and media analysis Models for network data Network analysis in human and social sciences Information propagation and assimilation in social networks Data mining and machine learning in social systems *APPLICATIONS* Novel social applications and systems Transient OSNs (e.g. Snapchat) Special purpose OSNs (e.g., Instagram, Vine) Communities in social networks Collaboration networks New models of advertising and monetization in social networks Mobile advertising on OSNs Network visualization Social networks and online education Sentiment analysis on OSNs Multilingual social networks Social networks as agents of societal change *PRIVACY & SECURITY* Privacy and security in social systems Trust and reputations in social systems Detection, analysis, prevention of spam, phishing, and misbehavior in social systems *IMPORTANT DATES:* Submission Date: 15 July 2021 Notification to Authors: 10 October 2021 Camera Ready and Registration: 30 October 2021 *SUBMISSION* Papers selected for presentation will appear in the SNAMS Proceedings and will be submitted to IEEE for inclusion. Papers can be up to 8 pages in IEEE format, 10pt font using the IEEE 8.5" x 11" two-column format, single space, A4 format. All papers should be in PDF format, and submitted electronically at Paper Submission Link. A full paper must not exceed the stated length (including all figures, tables and references). The proceedings will be submitted for indexing to EI (Compendex), Scopus and other indexing services like DBLP. Submitted papers must present original unpublished research that is not currently under review for any other conference or journal. Papers not following these guidelines may be rejected without review. Also, submissions received after the due date, exceeding length limit, or not appropriately structured may also not be considered. Authors may contact the Program Chair for further information or clarification. Please send any inquiry to the Emerging Tech.
