Track on Social Network and Media Analysis (SONAMA)
The 39th ACM Symposium on Applied Computing (SAC 2024)

April 8 - April 12, 2024, Avila, Spain


Aims and Scope
With the advent of social network services such as Twitter, Facebook, Tumbler, and Google+, the research on social network and media analysis has been greatly advanced. In recent years, the interactions among people, sharing of knowledge and experiences, community activities in social network services increase greatly, which would make the research on social networks more important. Furthermore, as social media contents within social network services are rapidly being produced and consumed, the social media contents now account for the majority of content published on the world wide web. Social media is differentiated from traditional media in many aspects such as its frequency, quality, usability, immediacy, and permanence, which leads to significant potential to the social media analysis research.
The ACM SAC has been an important venue for the past 38 years, attracting computer scientists, computer engineers, software engineers, and application developers from around the world. The Social Network and Media Analysis (SONAMA) track of ACM SAC will provide a forum that brings together researchers and practitioners for exploring technologies, issues, experiences, and applications with a specific focus on the recent research trends and industrial needs in the related fields. Since social network and media analysis encompasses a variety of highly cross-disciplinary research issues, the SONAMA will foster collaborations and exchange of ideas and experiences among researchers working in various fields such as computer science, linguistics, statistics, sociology, economics, and business. 

Topics of Interest
We plan to include all the important topics related to social network and media analysis within the SONAMA.
These topics include, but are not limited to:
- Community structure analysis in social networks    
- Applications of social network and media analysis

Important Dates
Paper submission: September 29, 2023 (Extended)
Acceptance notification: October 30, 2023
Camera-ready copies: November 30, 2023
Author registration: November 30, 2023

Submission Guidelines
Authors are invited to submit original and unpublished papers of research and applications for this track. Full papers are limited to 8 pages with the option for up to 2 additional pages. The author(s) name(s) and address(es) must not appear in the body of the paper, and self-reference should be in the third person. This is to facilitate double-blind review. Only the title should be shown at the first page without the author's information. Papers must be formatted according to the ACM SAC template. Papers that received high reviews but were not accepted due to space limitations can be invited for the poster session. Posters are limited to 3 pages with the option for up to only additional page. For full submission guidelines, please follow the instructions on the ACM SAC 2024 website. Please submit your contribution via SAC 2024 Web page.

Paper registration is required, allowing the inclusion of the paper/poster in the conference proceedings. An author or a proxy attending ACM SAC MUST present the paper: This is a requirement for the paper/poster to be included in the ACM digital library. No-show of registered papers and posters will result in excluding them from the ACM digital library.

Student Research Competition (SRC) Program
Graduate students are invited to submit research abstracts (maximum of 4 pages in ACM camera-ready format) following the instructions published at SAC 2024 website. Submission of the same abstract to multiple tracks is not allowed. All research abstract submissions will be reviewed by researchers and practitioners with expertise in the track. focus area to which they are submitted. Authors of selected abstracts will have the opportunity to give poster and oral presentations of their work and compete for three top-winning places. The SRC committee will evaluate and select First, Second, and Third place winners. The winners will receive medals and cash awards. Winners will be announced during the conference banquet. Invited students receive SRC travel support and are eligible to apply to the SIGAPP Student Travel Award Program (STAP) for additional travel support.
