Dear All,

We are pleased to announce the availability of Call for Exceptional
Papers for Social Media Mining and Analysis (SMMA'17), and we
invite submissions of papers on all topics related to computer
science theories, algorithms, and applications, etc. Accepted
papers must contain novel results. Results can be either
theoretical or empirical. Results will be judged on the degree
to which they have been objectively established and/or their
potential for scientific and technological impact.

The 3rd International Workshop on Social Media Mining and Analysis
in Conjunction with the 10th IEEE International Conference on
Cyber, Physical and Social Computing (CPSCom 2017)

               21-23 June 2017, Exeter, England, Great Britain

Submission Deadline: March 22, 2017       Author Notification: April 22,
Final Manuscript Due: May 15, 2017

The emergence of social network led to the boost of user generated content
which consequently gave rise to fields such as data mining and web mining.
The social network also gave rise to the new phenomena called social media
which empowered the users towards citizen journalism where users can
choose to act as content providers instead of more content consumers.
The social networking websites such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Flickr,
and Weibo etc, are a few examples of such empowerment. Furthermore,
these social media platforms provide new opportunities to explore the user
behaviour which could benefit for various applications related to economy,
marketing, education, business, medicine, etc. Social Media Mining is the
process of representing, analysing, and extracting actionable patterns
from large-scale social media data.

SMMA-2017 is the next edition of SMMA-2016 (Toulouse, France),
SMMA-2015 (Liverpool, UK) and aims to discuss the theories and
methodologies from different disciplines such as computer science,
data mining, machine learning, social network analysis, network science,
sociology, and statistics in order to provide conceptual insights on
mining social media data.

We invite researchers and practitioners namely from communities of machine
learning (or artificial intelligence), information retrieval, data mining,
reinforcement learning, big data, deep learning, large-scale database,
smart robotics and social network analysis to share their ideas,
research achievements and solutions in fostering the advancement of
intelligent data analytics and management of social media data. We solicit
original, unpublished, and innovative research work on applying any
intelligent technologies and methods to all aspects around the theme of
this workshop. The workshop is co-located with CPSCom-2017, the 10th IEEE
International Conference on Cyber, Physical and Social Computing.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

+Fundamental theories of machine learning and big data analysis

+Statistical modelling of large computer networks

+Social media for citizen journalism

+Communities discovery and analysis in large-scale social networks

+Large-scale graph algorithms for social network analysis

+Reputation, trust, privacy and security in social networks

+Expert systems and decision-making for social media data

+Recommendation systems and marketing

+Methods for tie strength or link prediction

+Methods for extracting and understanding user and group behaviour

+Crowdsourcing and collective intelligence

+Human-computer interaction systems and applications

+Other issues related to various social computing applications and case
