Dear All,

Please consider submitting an abstract to the session *“Social **media
analysis and network analytics" *at the upcoming *5th European Conference
on Social Networks *(*EUSN)*, September 7-10, 2021 in Naples (Italy).

*Session organizers*:

- Lara Fontanella and Mara Maretti, Department of Legal and Social
Sciences, Chieti-Pescara University, Italy

- Maria Prosperina Vitale, Department of Political and Social Studies,
University of Salerno, Italy

*Session description:*

The dissemination and use of social media have grown widely worldwide in
the last 15 years. Social media influence politics and economics and
redefine identity, social practices, and lifestyles. In the era of “Big
Data”, the ubiquity and quantity of content created every day by social
media provide great opportunities and unique challenges for applying
network analytics to unstructured data, such as social media interactions
and textual contents. In big data applications, graphs are huge, with
thousands, even millions of nodes and edges. Graph spectra, graph
summarization and network sampling techniques can be employed to understand
the information encoded in large graphs. In addition, graph theory and
network analytics can help in inferring information and analysing community
structures in social media networks. Social Network Analysis can provide
insights into different research fields, such as computational propaganda,
dis/misinformation mining, fake news and bot detection, opinion and emotion
mining, virtual community of practice.
