Social Networks, Large Networks and their Applications (SLNA)

Naples Italy, 28 November - 1 December 2016

Recently, social networks have grown rapidly in size and popularity.

The global internet population has witnessed a popular expansion to

reach billions of users around the world.  For connected users,

social networks provide a most suitable space for sharing data,

interacting with other users and forming communities with

common interests.

Social networks have important impacts on today's society not only

in terms of structure and dynamics, but also regarding scientific

and technological aspects. Social networks raise new research

challenges due to the numerous emerging needs and applications.

The focus of this track is on emerging and novel concepts,

architectures and methodologies for social and more generally

large networks analysis, tools and applications, including issues

related to complex graphs, semantics, big data, and security.

The topics of interest for this track include, but are not limited to:


Social Network Analysis - methods, algorithms, processes

Social graph processing / manipulation

Usage / implementation of Big Data algorithms

Avoiding fragmentation of the social graph

*Open cross-platform interactions

*Usage of Identity algorithms (OAuth, openID, etc.)

*Usage of Identity APIs
