3rd International Symposium on Security and Privacy in Social Networks and
Big Data
Melbourne, Australia, 13-15 December 2017

Symposium Outline

Social Networks and Big Data have pervaded all aspects of our daily lives.
With their unparalleled popularity, social networks have evolved from the
platforms for social communication and news dissemination, to indispensable
tools for professional networking, social recommendations, marketing, and
online content distribution. Social Networks, together with other
activities, produce Big Data that is beyond the ability of commonly used
computer software and hardware tools to capture, manage, and process within
a tolerable elapsed time. It has been widely recognised that security and
privacy are the critical challenges for Social Networks and Big Data
applications due to their scale, complexity and heterogeneity.

The 3rd International Symposium on Security and Privacy in Social Networks
and Big Data (SocialSec 2017) will be held in Melbourne, Australia on 13-15
December 2017. It follows the success of SocialSec 2015 in Hangzhou, China
and SocialSec 2016 in Fiji. The aim of the symposium is to provide a
leading edge forum to foster interactions between researchers and
developers with the security and privacy communities in Social Networks and
Big Data, and to give attendees an opportunity to interact with experts in
academia, industry, and governments.
