The 2012 IEEE/ACM International Conference on Advances in Social
Networks Analysis and Mining
The study of social networks originated in social and business
communities. In recent years, social network research has advanced
significantly; the development of sophisticated techniques for Social
Network Analysis and Mining (SNAM) has been highly influenced by the
online social Web sites, email logs, phone logs and instant messaging
systems, which are widely analyzed using graph theory and machine
learning techniques. People perceive the Web increasingly as a social
medium that fosters interaction among people, sharing of experiences
and knowledge, group activities, community formation and evolution.
This has led to a rising prominence of SNAM in academia, politics,
homeland security and business. This follows the pattern of known
entities of our society that have evolved into networks in which actors
are increasingly dependent on their structural embedding.
The international conference on Advances in Social Network
Analysis and Mining (ASONAM 2012) will primarily provide an
interdisciplinary venue that will bring together practitioners and
researchers from a variety of SNAM fields to promote collaborations and
exchange of ideas and practices. ASONAM 2012 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
Full papers will be reviewed and assessed by the program
committee and a "Best Paper Award" ceremony will be organized at the
Best paper awards:
