The 2015 IEEE/ACM International Conference on Advances in Social Networks Analysis and Mining (ASONAM) will be held in Paris, from August 25th to 28th. About 300 social network analysis experts are expected at Telecom ParisTech, in the 13th arrondissement.
The study of social networks originated in social and business communities. In recent years, social network research has advanced significantly; the development of sophisticated techniques for Social Network Analysis and Mining (SNAM) has been highly influenced by the online social Web sites, email logs, phone logs and instant messaging systems, which are widely analysed using graph theory and machine learning techniques.
People increasingly perceive the Web as a social medium that fosters interaction among people, sharing of experiences and knowledge, group activities, community formation and evolution. This has led to a rising prominence of SNAM in academia, politics, homeland security and business.
The ASONAM 2015 will primarily provide an interdisciplinary venue that will bring together practitioners and researchers from a variety of SNAM fields to promote collaborations and exchange of ideas and practices. The conference solicits both experimental and theoretical works on social network analysis and mining along with their application to real life situations.
