Call for submissions: ASONAM 2024 - Deadline 31 May 2024

We invite submissions for the journal track of the 16th International Conference on Advances in Social Networks Analysis and Mining -ASONAM-2024. The journal track of the conference is implemented in partnership with the Social Network Analysis and Mining Journal (SNAM).

Subject Coverage

We invite the submission of high-quality manuscripts reporting relevant research studies on all topics related to scope of ASONAM 2024 as per the website of ASONAM 2024

Eligibility Criteria

Given the special nature of the journal track, submitted papers have to adhere to the following eligibility criteria:

Papers have to satisfy the high-quality criteria of journal papers as per SNAM standard, and at the same time lend themselves to conference talks. Journal versions of previously published conference papers and survey papers will not be considered for this journal track. A paper rejected by SNAM journal may be submitted to this journal track only in case accompanied by a detailed explanation how the feedback from the previous reviewers were handled. This should be part of the paper and should form the front pages of the submission. Papers that do not fall into the eligible category may be rejected without formal reviews; a paper rejected based on scope may be later recommended by Springer team as regular papers to other Springer journals which may fit the scope better.

Authors are encouraged to adhere to the best practices of Reproducible Research (RR) by making available data and software tools for reproducing the results reported in their papers. For the sake of persistence and proper authorship attribution, we require the use of standard repository hosting services such as dataverse, mldata, openml, etc. for data sets, and mloss, bitbucket, github, etc. for source code.

Submission Guidelines:

The journal track allows continuous submissions until 31 May 2024. Papers will be processed and sent out for review soon after they pass the regular check for eligibility. The review process will be completed by end of July 2024, or shortly after that in case we encounter delay from some committed reviewers.

We require authors to submit their paper to the Springer Editorial Manager SNAPP. Specifically, authors should make a journal submission to SNAM journal using the link:, and select ASONAM 2024 journal track.

The papers should follow the submission guidelines of SNAM journal; and it is recommended that submitted papers do not exceed 25 pages, including references; appendices may be added to the end of the paper, in case needed. Further, papers should be prepared in English and structured in accordance with the Springer journal requirements, refer to the author instructions and style files available at SNAM journal website. Do not forget to specify 3 to 6 keywords describing the main research activity presented in the manuscript.

Include in your submission a cover letter which contains a short summary of the main contribution and suggest up to four candidate reviewers not related to any of the authors and cited in the manuscript, including a brief motivation for each suggestion.

Authors should also declare any conflict of interest by reporting the email domains of all institutions with which the authors have an institutional conflict of interest. Authors have an institutional conflict of interest if they are currently employed or have been employed at this institution in the past three years, or if the authors have extensively collaborated with this institution within the past three years. Authors are also required to identify all members of the organizing team of ASONAM 2024 with whom the authors have a conflict of interest. Examples of conflicts of interest include co-authorship in the last five years, a colleague in the same institution within the last five years, and advisor/student relationships.
