SNDS 2010 - Co-located with PODC 2010

Extended deadline: May 25, 2010

------------ Call for Papers ------------

Social Networks have rapidly become a fundamental component of today's
distributed applications. Web 2.0 applications have dramatically
changed the way users interact with the Internet and with each
other. The number of users of websites like Flickr, Delicious,
Facebook, or MySpace is constantly growing and is the amount of data
that these websites are called to handle. This emerging scenario
creates new opportunities for computer scientists. Developers can
exploit the social aspect to derive new interesting ideas for the
design of novel applications. Protocol designers can take into account
social models to design new communication and data sharing protocols
or to optimize the behavior of existing ones. At the same time, as the
scale of social-network-based systems increases, we are also faced
with new challenges. First, social network systems including users
distributed around the globe require scalable protocols to manage data
storage and dissemination.  Second, the presence of sensitive
information associated with users demands that these protocols be
robust and resilient to attacks that can hamper the privacy of
users. The goal of SNDS is to bring together researchers from such
diverse fields of expertise as distributed systems, data bases,
software engineering, and security to discuss and tackle these

--- Keynote Speakers ---

The SNDS program features four interventions by widely recognized
experts in the areas of social networking and distributed systems.

Sihem Amer-Yahia,  Yahoo! Research
Peter Triantafillou, University of Patras
Boaz Patt-Shamir, Tel Aviv University (http://www.eng.tau.ac.il/~boaz/)
Krishna Gummadi,  Max-Planck Institute for Software Systems

For more details see http://www.gossple.fr/workshops/snds/keynotes.html.

--- Submission and logistics ---

The SNDS program will combine the above keynote interventions with the
presentations of several contributed papers. Prospective authors are
invited to submit papers by email to both:

[log in to unmask], and

Submission emails MUST have "[SNDS2010-submission]" as a subject
line. Submitted papers should consist of 2 to 3 pages including all
figures and references. They should be typeset in the same format as
PODC submissions, and should include author names and
affiliations. Submitted papers will be subject to a light review
process to evaluate their originality, clarity, relevance, and, above
all, their likelihood of generating discussion.

--- Important Dates ---

Submissions due: May 25, 2010 (extended)

Notification of Acceptance: June 15, 2010
