                    CALL FOR PAPERS

      2013 IEEE International Workshop on
Big Data Analytics in Mobile Social Networks (BigMSN)

  to be held on December 16-19, 2013, Fuzhou, China

       in conjunction with CloudCom-Asia 2013

Important dates:
* Submission Deadline (Extended): Sept. 25, 2013
* Notification of Acceptance: Oct. 11, 2013
* Camera-ready: Oct. 25, 2013
* Author registration: Oct. 25, 2013

As smart phones, global positioning systems, and Web 2.0 technologies
become prevalent, mobile social networks (MSN), including location based
social networks, are getting popular, e.g., Foursquare, BrightKite,
Jiepang, Facebook, Google+, Flickr, Wechat all offer location sharing
services. MSN bridge the physical and virtual worlds by enabling anytime
anywhere social interaction and geotagging any user generated content. It
is believed that various application domains will be benefited from
analyzing the data from MSN, such as business services, health care,
disaster management, smart cities, etc.. However, since they reflect the
daily social lives of billions of people, MSN data are not only of vast
amount, but also with characteristics distinguished from general big data:
1) complex network structures from the social dimension; 2) sparse or
coarse trajectories from the spatial dimension; 3) subjective bias from
human factors. Therefore it is imperative to develop sophisticated and
scalable analyzing techniques for extracting meaningful information from
MSN Data.

To address these concerns, the workshop BigMSN 2013 is intended to provide
a forum for researchers to present their researches related to big data
analytics in MSN. We solicit technical papers of topics including but not
limited to:
* Location estimation / prediction from MSN data
* User / group mobility modeling
* Activity / emotion / opinion recognition from MSN data
* Data mining / machine learning / pattern recognition in MSN
* Algorithms for mobile / crowd / participatory sensing
* Social structure and community detection in MSN
* Dynamics and evolution of MSN
* Storing and querying of large scale graph / spatial data
* Location based personalized search / recommendation
* Energy / bandwidth / time efficient strategy for MSN
* Security, privacy, trust and reputation in MSN
* Software architecture for MSN data analytics lifecycle
* Visualization of MSN data
* Innovative location-based services and applications
* User studies and experiences

Interested authors can submit full papers of 6 pages in IEEE Computer
Society Proceedings format to
https://www.easychair.org/account/signin.cgi?conf=bigmsn2013. Each paper
will receive at least 3 peer reviews. Accepted papers will be included in
the CloudCom-Asia workshop proceedings (EI-Indexed), published by IEEE
Computer Society Press. At least one author of each accepted paper should
register as a participant and present the paper on the workshop. Extended
versions of distinguished papers will be invited for publication in special
