       Dear colleague,

Call for Tutorials

ASONAM has established itself as the world's premier research conference in
social network analysis and mining. ASONAM 2013 provides a leading forum
for presentation of original research results, as well as exchange and
dissemination of innovative, practical development experiences. Besides the
technical program, the conference will feature workshops, tutorials,
panels, demos, etc.

ASONAM 2013 welcomes proposals for short and long tutorials that focus on
new research directions and initiatives. The tutorials will be part of the
main conference technical program, and are free of charge to the attendees
of  the conference. Tutorial presenter(s) will receive complimentary
registration; up to two free registrations will be provided per tutorial.
Though not guaranteed, one presenter per tutorial may receive up to $750 to
partially cover travel expenses; this will depend on the final budget of
the conference and will be finalized in June/July 2013.

We invite proposals for tutorials from active researchers and experienced
tutors. Ideally, a tutorial will cover the state-of-the-art research,
development and applications in a specific social network analysis and
mining direction, and stimulate and facilitate future work. A tutorial
should be general and comprehensive rather than a repetition of
presenter(s) own research achievements.
High preference will be given to tutorials on interdisciplinary directions,
novel and emerging applications. A proposal should cover the following

Abstract (up to 150 words)
Rationale of presenting the tutorial at ASONAM 2013 (up to 250 words)
Target audience and prerequisites (up to 100 words)
A list of forums with their time, locations and estimate of the number of
attendees if the tutorial or a similar/highly related tutorial has been
presented by the same author(s) before, and highlight the
similarity/difference between those and the one proposed for ASONAM 2013
(up to 150 words for each entry)
A list of tutorials on the same/similar/highly related topics given by

150 words for each entry)

only Tutors’ short bio and their expertise related to the tutorial (up to
150 words per tutor)

Length of the tutorial: short (1.5-2 hours) or long (3-4 hours). A list of
