CALL FOR PAPERS - SNMAM 2017
SNMAM 2017 - Track on Social Network and Media Analysis and Mining
04-06 September 2017 - Lima, PERU
Online Social Networks are web platforms that provide a variety of services. In such platforms 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 increase in consumption and production of social media, have made the analysis of social networks one of the most relevant topics amongst academic researchers and industry practioners.
SIMBig has becoming an important venue that has attracted computer scientists, computer engineers, software engineers, and application developers who work on networks and web based-methods. 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, it will be welcome experimental and theoretical works on social network and media analysis and mining along with their application to real world problems.
Submissions will be reviwed and assessed by at least to member of the program committee. Accepted papers will be published in the proceedings of SIMBig 2017 as well as indexed on DBLP (see the SNMAM 2016 published papers here: http://dblp2.uni-trier.de/db/conf/simbig/simbig2016.html).
The authors of best papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their papers for Springer CCIS Series.
