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. The Social Network and Media Analysis and Mining (SNMAM) track of SIMBig will provide a forum that brings both researchers and practitioners to discuss: research trends and techniques related to social networks and media.
We plan to include all the important topics related to social network and media analysis and mining within SNMAM. The topics suitable for SNMAM include, but not limited to:
