Call for Exhibits and Demos

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.

Researchers, practitioners and developers are invited to submit demo proposals to ASONAM 2018. The topics include, but not restricted to, the following:

  • Agent based social simulation and computational models
  • Anomaly detection in social network evolution
  • Application of social network analysis and mining
  • Community discovery and analysis in large scale online/offline social networks
  • Connection between biological similarities and social network formulation
  • Contextual social network analysis and mining
  • Crime network analysis
  • Crowd sourcing
  • Cyber anthropology
  • Dark Web
  • Data models for social networks and social media
  • Data protection inside communities
  • Economical impact of social network discovery
  • Evolution of communities/patterns on the Web and in large organizations
  • Impact of social networks on recommendations systems
  • Incorporating social information in query processing and query optimization
  • Information acquisition and establishment of social relations
  • Influence of cultural aspects on the formation of communities
  • Large-scale graph algorithms for social network analysis
  • Misbehaviour detection in communities
  • Migration between communities
  • Multi-actor/multiple-relationship networks
  • Multi-agent based social network modeling and analysis
  • Open source intelligence
  • Pattern presentation for end-users and experts
  • Personalization for search and for social interaction
  • Political impact of social network discovery
  • Privacy, security and civil liberty issues
  • Recommendations for product purchase, information acquisition and establishment of social relations
  • Scalability of social networking/search algorithms
  • Social and cultural anthropology
  • Social geography
  • Social psychology of information diffusion
  • Spatial/knowledge networks
  • Statistical modeling of large networks
  • Trust networks and evolution of trust
  • Visual representation of dynamic social networks

Each accepted demo is required to have a poster and demonstrate during the demo sessions using own laptop/device. ASONAM 2018 will provide space and Internet connection at the conference venue.


Submissions can be done by email to Prof. Tansel Ozyer

All demonstration submissions must be no more than 4 pages (including all figures) using IEEE CPS two-column template and should provide a short and clear description about the system to be demonstrated, covering a summary of its novel characteristics, the list of its functions and features. Any submission that does not follow the guidelines will be rejected without review.

The selection criteria used for demonstration proposals include novelty, technical quality, and presentation quality of the demonstrated system.


All accepted demos will be included in the formal conference proceedings and forwarded for inclusion in IEEE Computer Society Digital Library (CSDL), IEEE Xplore and the ACM Digital Library. The conference proceedings will be submitted for EI indexing through INSPEC by IEEE. The proceedings will be also covered by several other indexes, including DBLP, SCOPUS, etc.
