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 2016 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 2016 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 one-page description of the tutorial (including title, authors’ short bios, abstract, and background expected from the audience) will be included in the conference proceedings.
Proposals should include the following items:
- Abstract (up to 150 words)
- Rationale of presenting the tutorial at ASONAM 2016 (up to 250 words)
- Target audience and prerequisites (up to 100 words)
- A list of forums with their time, location, approximate number of attendees, and URLs of the slides/notes if the tutorial or a similar/highly-related tutorial has been presented by the same author(s) before (up to 150 words for each entry) – the similarities/differences with the one proposed for ASONAM 2016 should be highlighted
- A list of other tutorials given by the authors – please list titles, presenters, forums, locations and approximate number of attendees only
- A list of tutorials on the same/similar/highly-related topics given by other people (up to 150 words for each entry) – the similarities/differences with the one proposed for ASONAM 2016 should be highlighted
- Authors' short bio and their expertise related to the tutorial (up to 150 words per tutor)
- An outline of the tutorial in the form of a bullet list (up to one page)
- Length of the tutorial (1.5-2 hours for short tutorials and 3-4 hours for long tutorials)
- A list of up to 25 most important references that will be covered in the tutorial
- Any specific audio/video/computer requirements for the tutorial
