[DMANET] CSoNet'14: Deadline Extended: July 31: Workshop on Computational Social Networks, Hawaii, Dec. 2014

Our apology if you receive multiple copies of this
CFP: 3rd Workshop on Computational Social Networks
CSoNet 2014 -
Dec. 21, 2014, Maui, Hawaii, In conjunction with COCOA '14

Computing in social network science has recently become one of the
central themes across mathematical science, information and
communication technology, which attracts a significant interest from
researchers in mathematics, computer science, system science, and
social science. The objective of this workshop is to advance and
promote the theoretical foundation, mathematical aspects as well as
applications of social computing.

The topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
* Mathematical modelling and analysis
* Real-world complex systems
* Information retrieval in social contexts, political analysts
* Network structure analysis
* Network dynamics optimization
* Complex network robustness and vulnerability
* Information diffusion models and analysis
* Security and privacy
* Searching in complex networks
* Efficient algorithms

* Paper submission due: ***July 31, 2014***
* Notification of Acceptance: August 21, 2014
* Camera-ready: September 04, 2014

Accepted papers will be published in LNCS - Springer along with main
papers of COCOA 2014. Extended version of selected papers will be
published in a special issue of Computational Social Networks journal
by Springer.

Authors who are interested in the above topics can submit their
unpublished work to this workshop via Easychair using LNCS style. The
maximum length of paper (including references) is 10 pages.
