International Workshop on Social Network Analysis and Mining using 
Digital Technology (SNAM-DT)

August 17-20, 2014, Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada

in conjunction with the 9th International Conference on Future Networks 
and Communications (FNC 2014)


Since the appearance of human society, (physical) social networks have 
been playing important roles in people's lives. Today, understanding 
social networks is not only important for understanding human society, 
but also critical for healthcare, business, national security and much 
more. In the meantime, new technologies such as mobile phones and social 
media are making dramatic impacts on social networks. To understand the 
quickly evolving networks, It is imperative for researchers to study and 
propose comprehensive social network analysis and mining techniques and 
approaches. In fact, social network studies have advanced significantly 
in recent years. Currently, machine learning techniques and graph 
theoretical approaches have been widely applied to social network 
analysis and mining, which promotes the advancement of social media 
development and foster people to communicate more effectively. 
Nonetheless, more needs to be done. The workshop on social network 
analysis and mining using digital technology (SNAM-DT) aims to provide 
an interdisciplinary venue that brings together researchers from related 
fields to exchange their ideas and experiences of social network study 
as well as to build collaborations. Important aspects in social 
networking analysis and mining will be addressed with theoretical and 
practical approaches. Papers submitted to the workshop will be reviewed 
and assessed by the program committee.

Topics of interest include but not limited to:

     Cyber-based social simulation and computational models
     Social network data collection using digital technology
     Application of social network analysis
     Application of social network mining
     Crime data mining and network analysis
     Data models for social networks and social media
     Data protection inside communities
     Large-scale graph algorithms for social network analysis
     Migration between communities
     Multi-Actor/Multiple-Relationship Networks
     Pattern presentation for end-users and experts
     Personalization for search and for social interaction
     Preparing data for Web mining
     Political impact of social network discovery
     Privacy, security and civil liberty issues
     Recommendations for product purchase, information acquisition and 
establishment of social relations
     Recommendation networks
     Web mining algorithms
