In the past, people just utilize social network platforms to distribute their news or opinions. But now, people has been influenced by social interaction in their daily life decision, e.g., travel, flight booking, hotel recommendation, purchase of products, etc.. These purchase activities are highly related to people’s social communications as well as the locations where they are living. The popularity of smartphone usage provides the convenient way for companies to know their customers’ locations. When the online social users’ interaction meets with the availability of their locations, the new commercial strategy will be fired up. However, there is no such event to discuss these issues together. This proposed workshop will provide a great opportunity for researchers and practitioners to understand their challenging problems and discuss the future techniques in this area. Therefore, the workshop is timely and significant for social media, big data and the web from the academic and industry communities.
CALL FOR PAPERS
In this workshop, we aim to attract researchers from all over the world working in the field of social computing, with a particular focus on social users’ behaviors, activities, interactions, news propagations, and social influence learning models in the context of available spatial or location information in urban cities. IWSC2018 also welcomes all researchers in the database, data mining, natural language processing, social data and web mining to utilize their expertise and match up to develop more efficient and practical algorithms or models to obtain smart knowledge from daily generated invaluable social media and web data. Research topics include, but are not limited to:
Papers should be in English with no more than the required length (*full paper with 6-10 pages*) conforming to the formatting instructions for the IEEE 2-column format including references and figures. Each paper will be judged on its originality, significance, technical quality, relevance to IWSC2018, and presentation.Submissions of a paper as PDF files should be regarded as an undertaking that, should the paper be accepted, at least one author will attend the conference to present the work. Authors should make the submissions through the following site:
In addition, high-quality papers will be recommended to publish in a special issue of Complexity (SCI Journal, Impact Factor = 4.621) - Analysis and Applications of Location-aware Big Complex Network Data.
- Research and Industry Full Papers (4~10 pages)
