Subject: [ E-CFP ] Workshop: Social Web Analytics for Trend Detection (New call for papers- Extended deadline)
From: <deppych_(on)_csd.auth.gr>
Date received: 28 Aug 2012
Deadline: 17 Sep 2012
Start date: 28 Nov 2012


Social networks on the Web are growing rapidly and offer a
fertile ground for data mining and analysis. So many social
networks flourish in an unforeseen manner and social data are
evolving from various social streams. Such data embed human
interactions and interests and their analysis is valuable for
detecting trends, events and phenomena on today's Web reality.
Methodologies and techniques of information retrieval, databases,
preference modeling, graph theory, etc. have been leveraged and
adapted into the social web dynamic environment but still open
questions remain in terms of introducing new methodologies which
will facilitate trend detection. The workshop addresses these
issues by providing a forum for researchers and practitioners to
discuss the social data analytics relevant topics with emphasis
on the critical actors in emerging online social networks. The
workshop aims at taking up the topics of the main WISE conference
(such as Web Data Models, Web Information Retrieval, Web Metrics
and Performance, Web Mining and Web Warehousing, Web Monitoring
and Management, etc) and specializing them on the issues relevant
to trend detection. Trend detection is vital in today's
societies, academia and industries since major applications can
rely on them (recommendations, content outsourcing, policy
making, advertising etc).

Having said that, this workshop aims at gathering researchers
from the fields of social computing, machine learning, and data
mining to think about the obstacles that hurdle the leveraging of
understanding and capturing of trends in the social Web. We
target researchers from both industry and academia to join forces
in this exciting area. We intend to discuss the recent and
significant developments in the general area and to promote
cross-fertilization of techniques. In particular, we aim at
identifying techniques that will enable researchers to understand
and predict those trends in social networks and social media, as
well as specify important directions for the research
communities. Understanding, capturing, mining and being able to
predict the trends in social media is interesting for several
areas such as marketing, security, and Web search. The workshop
will include the following topics of interest (but not limited

    - Trend detection principles in social networks
    - Network evolution and growth mechanisms
    - Social Web statistical analysis for trends
    - Social networks computational aspects
    - Behavioral modeling for trends in social networks
    - Affective social computing and emerging trends
    - Mining techniques for the social trends
    - Semantic analysis and social networks trends
    - Privacy and anonymity in social networks
    - Social networks communities for trends discovery
    - Information diffusion in social networks
    - Prediction and trends developing in online social networks.
    - Collaborative Filtering in the social Web
    - Social networks analytics tools
    - Experiments and applications of trends detection in social
