Dear Colleague,

Call for Papers - ACM/IEEE ASONAM 2013

The 2013 IEEE/ACM International Conference on Advances in Social Networks Analysis and Mining

ASONAM 2013 (see
Niagara Falls, Canada, August 25-28, 2013

For paper submission:

The study of social networks originated in social and business communities. In recent years, 
social network research has advanced significantly; the development of sophisticated techniques 
for Social Network Analysis and Mining (SNAM) has been highly influenced by the online social Web sites, 
email logs, phone logs and instant messaging systems, which are widely analyzed using graph theory and 
machine learning techniques. People perceive the Web increasingly as a social medium that fosters 
interaction among people, sharing of experiences and knowledge, group activities, community formation 
and evolution. This has led to a rising prominence of SNAM in academia, politics, homeland security 
and business. This follows the pattern of known entities of our society that have evolved into networks 
in which actors are increasingly dependent on their structural embedding.

The international conference on Advances in Social Network Analysis and Mining (ASONAM 2013) will primarily 
provide an interdisciplinary venue that will bring together practitioners and researchers from a variety 
of SNAM fields to promote collaborations and exchange of ideas and practices. ASONAM 2013 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.


General areas of interest to ASONAM 2013 include information science and mathematics, communication 
studies, business and organizational studies, sociology, psychology, anthropology, applied linguistics, 
biology and medicine.

More specialized topics within ASONAM 2013 include, but are not limited to:

    * Adoption of new services on social network platforms

Submission Guidelines

For paper submission:

Papers reporting original and unpublished research results pertaining to the above topics are solicited. 
New full paper submission deadline is April 15, 2013. These papers will follow an academic review process. 
Full paper manuscripts must be in English with a maximum length of 8 pages (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. Papers should be submitted to the Conference 
Submission System. If Web submission is not possible, manuscripts should be sent as an attachment via email 
to [log in to unmask] by April 15, 2013. The attachment must be in PDF or Word .doc format.

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 later on this week. 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.

Since IEEE CPS will publish the proceedings of ASONAM 2013, all the rules and regulations of IEEE CPS 
will be applied as explained in the following link:

Papers will be selected based on their originality, timeliness, significance, relevance, and clarity of 
presentation. Authors should certify that their papers represent substantially new previously unpublished 
work. Paper submission implies that the intent is for one of the authors to present the paper if accepted 
and that at least one of the authors register for a full conference fee.
