ACM SIGCOMM Workshop on Online Social Networks (WOSN'12)
			(Friday Aug 17, 2012)

			Helsinki, Finland		

With nearly half the world's population with access to the Internet 
being present on an Online Social Network, the field has infiltrated 
most walks of life. A significant fraction of mind-share in the form of 
applications, diverse access interfaces, and a large economic ecosystem 
has developed around this field. Going past the simple characterization 
and enumeration of properties, the networking research community has 
shown significant interest in attacking various problems associated with 
OSNs. WOSN'12 will bring together networking researchers and 
practitioners to discuss the challenges and important questions posed by 
emerging social applications. Of particular interest are problems 
related to system architecture design, explosion of new media traffic, 
and mobile access. WOSN'12 will facilitate cross-disciplinary discussion 
of relevance to computer networking involving new ideas and applications 
and experimental results. The workshop solicits original papers on 
ongoing work as well as position papers. All papers are limited to 6 pages.

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

Implications of social networking on network design 	
Network architecture design to support large scale social applications
Search strategies in social networks 	
Reputation and trust systems
Anonymity and privacy
Economic incentives for privacy
Architecture and design of external OSN applications
Decentralized (ad hoc) network applications and services
Measurement and analysis of online communities
