The IEEE/ACM International Conference on Advances in Social Network Analysis and Mining (ASONAM) provides a premier interdisciplinary forum to bring together researchers and practitioners from all social networking analysis and mining related fields for presentation of original research results, as well as exchange and dissemination of innovative, practical development experiences. ASONAM 2014 seeks to address important challenging problems with a specific focus on the emerging trends and industry needs associated with social networking analysis and mining. The conference solicits experimental and theoretical findings along with their real-world applications. In addition to the technical program, the conference will feature tutorials, workshops, panels, exhibits and demos.
ASONAM 2014 welcomes proposals for short and long tutorials from active researchers and experienced tutors. Ideally, a tutorial will cover the state-of-the-art research, development and applications in a specific social network analysis and mining direction, and stimulate and facilitate future work. High preference will be given to tutorials on interdisciplinary directions, novel and emerging applications. A proposal should cover the following items.
