Call for Tutorials

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 2019 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 2019 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.
