ASONAM 2018 | Call for Multidisciplinary Track

Call for Multidisciplinary Track

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 different disciplines using social network analysis and mining. ASONAM hosts presentation of original research results, as well as exchange and dissemination of innovative, practical development experiences. ASONAM 2018 is intended to address important aspects with a specific focus on the emerging trends and industry needs associated with social networking analysis and mining. The conference solicits experimental and theoretical works on social network analysis and mining along with their application to real life situations.

Within the general conference, the ASONAM 2018 multidisciplinary track will include the intersections of social network analysis and mathematics, communication, business management, statistics, scientometrics, sociology, psychology, anthropology, history, archeology, political sciences, applied linguistics, chemistry, neuroscience, biology, physics and health.

Papers of interest include, but are not limited to, the following topics:

  • Methodological problems in large network studies
  • Statistical methods for the analysis of network data
  • Structural network properties
  • Community detection and structure in large networks
  • Network Visualization
  • Dynamics and evolution patterns of large and complex networks
  • Social and media analysis
  • Knowledge and innovation networks
  • Cultural networks
  • Adolescent and peer networks
  • Social movements and civic organization networks
  • Analysis of communication, collaboration, organizational, economic, trade, political, governance, or criminal networks
  • Network analysis in human and social sciences (e.g., anthropology, psychology, sociology, history, law, archeology, etc.)
  • Computational social science
  • Politics and networks
  • Complex systems, physics and networks


Please submit an extended abstract not exceeding 4 pages or a full paper not exceeding 8 pages in IEEE/ACM format. Please send the PDF or Word file by e- mail to . In few days you will receive a confirmation mail of the submission.

Abstracts and Full paper manuscripts must be in English (using the IEEE two-column template). Submissions should include the title, author(s), affiliation(s), e-mail address(es), tel/fax numbers, abstract, and postal address(es) on the first page.

All submitted extended abstracts and full papers are subject to review and acceptance by the MULTIDISCIPLINARY TRACK Program Committee. Accepted abstracts and papers will be presented at the conference either as full talks or posters. Full papers must report original and unpublished research results pertaining to the above topics are solicited. Full papers will be published in the proceedings of ASONAM 2018. Extended abstracts could contain also preliminary research results, as well as already published works.

This is an initial template to get you started formatting your paper. The final submission will be done based on IEEE CPS requirements. More information will be provided. You will be asked to guarantee that your submission meets IEEE CPS standards and you will complete online copyright form by following the link to be provided.
