International Workshop on Computational Social Networks - IWCSN 2008 -
http://www.softcomputing.net/~csn/

December 9, 2008, Sydney, Australia

This workshop is organized in conjunction with the
2008 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Web Intelligence (WI-08)
http://datamining.it.uts.edu.au/wi08/html/wi/

Workshop Objective

Social networks provide a powerful abstraction of the structure and
dynamics of diverse kinds of people or people-to-technology
interaction. Web 2.0 has enabled a new generation of Web-based
communities, social networks, and folksonomies to facilitate
collaboration among different communities. Social network analysis is
a rapidly growing field within the Web intelligence domain. The recent
developments in Web 2.0 have provided more opportunities to
investigate the dynamics and structure of Web-based social networks.
Recent trends also indicate the usage of social networks as a key
feature for next generation usage and exploitation of the Web.  This
international workshop on "Computational Social Networks' is focused
on the foundations of social networks as well as case studies,
empirical, and other methodological works related to the computational
tools for the automatic discovery of Web-based social networks.   This
workshop provides an opportunity to compare and contrast the
ethological approach to social behavior in animals (including the
study of animal tracks and learning by members of the same species)
with web-based evidence of social interaction, perceptual learning,
information granulation, the behavior of humans and affinities between
web-based social networks.  The main topics cover the design and use
of various computational intelligence tools and software, simulations
of social networks, representation and analysis of social networks,
use of semantic networks in the design and community-based research
issues such as knowledge discovery, privacy and protection, and
visualization.

Recommended topics include but are not limited to the following:



o     Automatic discovery and analysis of Web based social networks.

o     Intelligent Visualization of Social Network Analysis

o     Intelligent social network

o     Social network analysis of communities of practice

o     Network evolution and growth mechanisms

o     Information diffusion in social networks

o     Affiliation networks

o     Epidemics and rumors in networks

o     Geographical clusters, networks, and innovation

o     Effects of network structure and dynamics on knowledge transfer
and sharing

o     Intra- and inter-organizational networks

o     Social capital, structural holes and Simmelian ties
