Dear colleagues,

Industry papers for IEEE/ACM ASONAM 2015 have been extended until May 10,

We look forward to your papers.


Alvin Chin
ASONAM 2015 Industrial Track Co-chair


*The 2015 IEEE/ACM International Conference on Advances in Social Network
Analysis and Mining: Industrial Track*

*Paris, France, August 25-28, 2015*


Social network analysis and mining techniques are being widely applied in
industrial settings. In many cases such techniques are incubating and
defining new industry sectors. Industry research in related areas is
growing fast and a lot of exciting ideas, and innovative techniques and
applications originated from these industry research activities.

The Industrial Track of the 2015 IEEE/ACM International Conference on
Advances in Social Network Analysis and Mining (ASONAM 2015) seeks
submissions in all submission categories (8-page full papers, 4-page short
papers, and 2-page extended abstracts) to showcase recent advances in
social network analysis and mining research with direct industry relevance,
to discuss emerging trends and challenges with practical implications, and
to facilitate interactions between academia and industry in this vital area
of study of growing interests.

All papers submitted to ASONAM 2015 Industrial Track will be peer-reviewed.
Compared to the ASONAM regular track, Industrial Track papers do not
necessarily need to contain major methodological advances, algorithmic
contributions, or rigorous experimental validation. Rather, the emphasis
will be on industrial innovations, clear practical relevance, interesting
lessons learned through significant practice, or new classes of
applications which might open up new venues for interesting academic work.
Works-in-progress papers are also welcomed.

Contributions from both industry R&D groups and the academia are welcome.
Note that industry should be broadly interpreted in this call, encompassing
both private and public sectors.

In many related top-rated conferences, papers presented at the industry
tracks tend to draw large audience and generate interesting discussions,
and many among them become well-cited work down the road. In addition to
regular presentation-based industry track sessions at the conference, we
will also organize an all-inclusive Industry Poster Session to encourage
exchange of ideas between academic researchers, industry researchers, and
practitioners. Depending on the availability of presentation slots, a
portion of accepted Industry Track papers might be scheduled for poster
presentation only. In addition, we will also organize an Industry System
Demo Session.

Industry teams that plan to give a Poster presentation or show a Demo but
do not have full or short paper submissions, are requested to contribute
2-page extended abstracts, which will be reviewed and, if accepted, will be
included in the conference proceedings. For authors planning to show a
Demo, a document describing the demo and the requirements for the demo,
will be solicited later after the Demo is accepted. Accepted authors for
posters will be required to create a poster to be displayed in the

We welcome submissions on the following, but not exclusive, topics:

   - Data mining of big data that come from business products or data
   - Consumer-driven data analytics from consumer products, services or
   behavior traces
   - Inferring customer and social behavior from social media
   - New applications and services arising from big data, social networks
   and social media
   - Methodologies and frameworks for mining and analyzing data from
   business products, big data and social media
   - Security and privacy issues in mining and analyzing personal data
   - Social media, social networks and big data usage studies
