********************************************************************

Online social networking is gradually turning into the primary means
of interacting with friends and peers online, forming new social ties,
or most commonly as a way of users to manage their "personal spaces".
Study of these large-scale social networking systems, their 
evolution, and development of data mining techniques that turn the
rich latent information within these networks into actionable
intelligence is of great interest. Presence of a diversity of content
(photos, videos, travel maps, reviews, interactive gaming, etc.) as
well as a variety of interaction paths (explicit friendships, links to
bookmarks or blogs, comments left on blogs, etc.) give raise to a
number of new and unique research challenges in terms of their
management, mining and modeling. Their effective solution requires
deeper collaboration amongst research areas ranging from graph theory
to sociology and economic models to data engineering. In this workshop
we aim to bring together academic researchers and practitioners to
address the open research challenges in dynamic social networks. We
solicit original high-quality submissions dealing with various aspects
of modeling and mining of evolving social networks with applications
to recommendation systems, targeted advertising, and classification/
clustering of entities. 


TOPICS OF INTEREST

- Modeling of Social Networks
  o Evolutionary models for social networks.
  o Privacy and security issues.
  o Modeling trust and reputation in social networks.

- Recommendation
  o Importance of friendship links in social recommender systems.
  o Impact of recommendation models on the evolution of the social network.
  o Classification models and their application in social recommender systems.

- Advertisement models
  o Influence models and their application in social environment
  o Social advertising.
  o Use of social networks for marketing

- Search in social media
  o Web page ranking informed by social media.
  o Expertise discovery.
  o Collaborative Filtering.
