IEEE CAOS 2019

The First IEEE INFOCOM Workshop on the
Communications and Networking Aspects of Online Social Networks

April 29, 2019 - Paris, France


*** Submission deadline: December 30, 2018 ***

 ==============================================================================
 ==============================================================================

Online Social Networks (OSNs) are a multidisciplinary research 
playground. On the one hand, they represent a challenging environment 
for researchers working in academia and industry to develop the next 
generation of networking platforms and their services. At the same time, 
the digital footprints that people leave behind through OSNs provide a 
unique source to investigate and understand (by exploiting BigData 
analytics) people's behavior, human relationships, and societal 
phenomena such as epidemics spreading, terrorist networks, the diffusion 
of opinions, the pulse of a city, the evolution of migrations, etc.

IEEE CAOS focuses on (i) understanding the behavior of OSN systems, and 
OSN users; (ii) designing OSN mechanisms, services and applications for 
the benefit of users, (iii) controlling the use, and possibly, misuse of 
OSN services; (iv) predicting the way information spreads in OSN and 
users acquire or lose importance and influence in their local and global 
communities.

CAOS aims to provide a reference forum targeted not only to the 
community of researcher working on networking technologies for OSN, but 
it aims at engaging a multidisciplinary community of researchers working 
at the intersection between computer networking, complex networks, Big 
Data analytics, focusing on network technologies and abstractions for 
OSN. Therefore, the workshop also welcomes submissions applying a wide 
range of (computer- and network-science) techniques and tools to OSN for 
investigating the properties and roles of the network of (online) social 
relationships in the various sectors of the society (e.g., politics, 
economics, finance, health, entertainment).

Topics include, but are not limited to:

-	Communications challenges in OSNs;
-	Platforms, protocols and applications for OSNs;
-	Decentralized, mobile and location-based OSNs;
-	Trust, reputation, privacy and security in OSNs;
-	Adversarial-aware analysis of OSN data;
-	Dynamics of trends, information and opinion diffusion in OSNs;
-	Recommendations and advertising in OSNs;
-	Social Search in OSNs;
-	Measurement, analysis and modeling of popular online social networks;
-	BigData analysis of OSNs seen as complex networked systems;
-	Information extraction and search in OSNs;
-	Complex-network analysis of OSNs;
-	Measurement, analysis and modeling of networked users' behavior 
through OSNs data;
-	Analysis of the use of OSNs in the urban context;
-	Network challenges of crowdsourcing is OSNs;
-	Network challenges in multidisciplinary applications of OSNs 
(economics, medicine, society, politics, homeland security, etc.);
-	AI technologies applied to OSNs modeling and analysis.


## PAPER FORMAT AND SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS

Papers must be submitted electronically as PDF files, formatted for 
8.5x11-inch paper. The length of the paper must be no more than 6 pages 
in the IEEE double-column format (10-pt font), including references and 
everything. Papers should neither have been published elsewhere nor 
being currently under review by another conference or journal. The 
reviews will be single blind. At least one of the authors of every 
accepted paper must register and present the paper at the workshop. 
Accepted papers will be published in the combined INFOCOM 2019 Workshop 
proceedings and will be submitted to IEEE Xplore.


## EDITORIAL FOLLOW-UPS

Extended versions of workshop selected papers will be considered for 
possible fast track publication on the Online Social Networks and Media 
Journal (Elsevier).
