INVITED SESSION ON SOCIAL NETWORKS - KES 2009
########################################

13th International Conference on
Knowledge-Based and Intelligent Information & Engineering Systems
28, 29 and 30 September 2009 Santiago, Chile


Session Scope

Web-based communities, social networks, virtual communities of practice, and many others have experienced a rapid growth. These technologies are providing a new way for human interaction and collaboration never seeing before. Therefore, social networks analysis area has arisen as a way to understand and enhance these communities and networks of people. This invited session on "Social Networks" focuses on the foundations of social networks as well as case studies, empirical, and other methodological works related to the computational tools for the automatic discovery of Web-based social networks. The main topics cover the design and use of various computational intelligence tools and software, simulations of social networks, representation and analysis of social networks, use of semantic networks in the design and community-based research issues such as knowledge discovery, privacy and protection, and visualization.
Generic topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

    * Automatic discovery and analysis of Web based social networks
    * Intelligent visualization of social network analysis
    * Intelligent social network
    * Social network mining
    * Social networks and social intelligence
    * Web site clustering
    * Link topology and site hierarchy
    * Virtual and web communities
    * Security, privacy and trust
    * Computational analysis of social and organizational systems
    * Web-based cooperative work
    * Social network analysis of communities of practice
    * Network evolution and growth mechanisms
    * Network structure prediction
    * Information diffusion in social networks
    * Affiliation networks
    * Geographical clusters, networks, and innovation
    * Effects of network structure and dynamics on knowledge transfer and sharing
    * Intra- and inter-organizational networks
    * Online communities and computer networks
    * Computational models and agent-based simulations of networks
