It is our pleasure to invite you to participate in the First Workshop on Social Network Analysis in Applications (SNAA 2011) that is held as a part of the International Conference on Advances in Social Networks Analysis and Mining (ASONAM 2011).
For the first time in the human history we have possibility to process data (gathered in our computer systems) about interactions and activities of millions of individuals. Communication and multiple user technologies allow us to form large networks which in turn shape and catalyse our activities. Due to scale, complexity and dynamics, these networks are extremely difficult to analyse in terms of traditional social network analysis methods being at our disposal. On the other hand, the data about human communication, common activities and collaboration simultaneously provide new opportunities for new applications.
This workshop is devoted to analysis of these large-scale social structures and what is more important to identify the areas where social network analysis can be applied and provide the knowledge that is not accessible for other types of analysis. Additionally, applications of social networks analysis can be investigated either from static or dynamic perspective. We seek for business and industrial applications of social network analysis that help to solve real-world problems.
The area of social networks analysis and its applications bring together researchers and practitioners from different fields and the main goal of this workshop is to provide for these people the opportunity to share their visions, research achievements and solutions as well as to establish worldwide cooperative research and development. At the same time, we want to provide a platform for discussing research topics underlying the concepts of social network analysis and its applications by inviting members of different communities that share this common interest of investigating social networks. As the area of social networks is a highly cross-disciplinary one, we aim to foster and develop sustainable collaborations between Computer Science and Informatics, Sociology, Cognitive Science and Psychology, Geographic and Environmental Science, Biology, and Health and Social Sciences. This will give the opportunity to push further the discussion upon the potential of social networks and their applications across these communities.
