II Brazilian Workshop on Social Network Analysis and Mining (BraSNAM 2013)
July 24 and 25, 2013.
Maceió, AL, Brazil
In this year, the II Brazilian Workshop on Social Network Analysis and Mining (BraSNAM 2013) will be held in conjunction with CSBC, providing a valuable opportunity for multidisciplinary groups to meet and engage in rich discussions about topics related to social network analysis. CSBC is the official event of the Brazilian Computing Society (SBC) and in its 33th edition, the conference will be held in the city of Maceió, in the state of Alagoas (in northeast Brazil), on July 24-25, 2013.
The study of social networks originated in social, educational and business communities, starting to have a theoretical support in 40’s. Currently, the increasing of the use of Web and social medium fosters interaction among people, data dissemination and information sharing. With this growing of available data – provided by people and their interaction, as also provided by logs and web servers - we have the opportunity of evaluate and develop techniques for social network analysis, identification and mining of social networks. This has led to a rising prominence of social network analyses in academia, politics, security, business, marketing, science and other fields.
The BraSNAM 2013 will provide an interdisciplinary venue that will bring together practitioners and researchers from social network analysis and its related fields to promote collaborations and exchange of ideas and practices.
More specialized topics within BraSNAM include, but are not limited to:
* Social networks visualization
* Flow and diffusion of information
* Community evolution
* Extraction and treatment of social data
* Mining techniques
* Influence detection
* Trust and expertise identification
* Linking prediction and simulation
* Social information applied to recommender systems
* Social information and retrieval systems
* Contextualized analysis of social and information networks
* Modeling of user behavior
* Mobile and smart multimedia sensors
* Monitoring social networks
* Privacy in social networks
* Detection of spam, misinformation and malicious activities
* Crowdsourcing and crowdfunding
* Cases and application to real life situations: Medicine, Science, Education, Marketing, Team Formation, Decision Making, Management and others.
**** Selected papers will be published in special issues of a journal (to be announced soon) ***
* Full and Short Paper Submission: March, 22
* Notification: May, 29
* Final Version: June, 17
The workshop will accept submissions of technical papers (full papers) and extended abstracts (position papers) written in Portuguese or English, not exceeding 12 and 6 pages, respectively. Submissions should follow the template of the Brazilian Computing Society (SBC). The templates for submission are available in http://www.sbc.org.br/index.php?option=com_jdownloads&Itemid=195&task=view.download&catid=32&cid=38
All the (full and position) papers will be judged according to following criteria: adequacy to workshop scope, relevance, technical quality, clarity, originality and evaluation of results. The evaluation of results is desired, but is not a precondition for submission. All technical articles will be presented orally.
Full papers will be presented in the oral sessions of BraSNAM 2013. The accepted abstracts will also be published in workshop’s proceedings and will be presented as posters.
All papers will go through a double blind review process, with at least three reviewers. ****Therefore, author names and contact information must be omitted from all submissions****. Authors must identify the topic(s) being addressed in the paper to assist the program committee in the review process. Selected papers will be published in special issues of a journal.
Each manuscript must be submitted electronically, as a PDF file, via the JEMS submission site: https://submissoes.sbc.org.br/home.cgi?c=1805
