Track on Social Network and Media Analysis and Mining (SNMAM)

Call for Papers

Online social networks are web platforms that provide a variety of services. Users may share locations and community activities, post and tag photos and other media content, as well as contact individuals with similar interests. The rapid growth of social networks, as well as the rapid increase in social media consumption and production have made the analysis of social media and networks a hot topic amongst academic researchers and industry practitioners alike. SIMBig has become an important venue that has attracted computer scientists, computer engineers, software engineers, and application developers from around the world. Within the general symposium, the Social Network and Media Analysis and Mining (SNMAM) track will provide a forum that brings both researchers and practitioners to discuss research trends and techniques related to social networks and media. Therefore, the track solicits experimental and theoretical works on social network and media analysis and mining along with their application to real life problems. Full papers will be reviewed and assessed by the program committee. Accepted papers will be published in the proceedings of SIMBig 2018 as well as indexed on DBLP (see the SNMAM 2017 published papers here). The best papers could be published in Springer CCIS Series.
