Call For Papers


CSoNet 2021 provides a premier interdisciplinary forum to bring together researchers and practitioners from all fields of big data and social networks, such as billion-scale network computing, social network/media analysis, mining, security and privacy, and deep learning and applications. CSoNet 2021 seeks to address emerging yet important computational problems, with a focus on the fundamental background, theoretical developments, and real-world applications associated with big data network analysis, modelling, and deep learning and understanding. The conference solicits theoretical, methodological, empirical, and experimental research reporting original and unpublished results on computational big data and social networks. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

      Real-world Complex Networks Analysis

      Trends and Pattern Analysis in Social Networks

      Representation Learning on Networks

      Big Data Analysis

      Mathematical Modeling and Analysis of Real-world Social Platforms

      Network Structure Analysis and Dynamics Optimization

      Data Network Design and Architecture

      Information Diffusion Models and Techniques

      Security and Privacy in Data Networks and Analysis

      Efficient Algorithms for Large-scale Data Networks Computing

      Reputation and Trust in Social Media

      Social Influence, Recommendation, and Media

      Applications of Complex Data Network Analysis

      Energy Efficiency in Mobile Data Networks

      Natural Language Understanding and Applications for Social Media

      E-commerce and Social Media Marketing

      Deep Learning on Graphs and its Applications

      Stock Market Prediction and Stock Recommendation with Social Media Data

      Anomaly Detection, Security, and Privacy in Big Data Networks

      Analysis of Signed and Attributed Real-world Networks

      Multidimensional Graph Analysis

      Algorithmic Fairness in Social Network Analysis and Graph Mining.

      Socially-relevant Analytics from Social Media Contents (e.g., Bias, Toxicity, etc.)

Accepted papers will be published in Springer’s Lecture Notes in Computer Science, and indexed by ISI (CPCI-S, included in ISI Web of Science), EI Engineering Index (Compendex and Inspec databases), ACM Digital Library, DBLP, Google Scholar, MathSciNet, etc. Also, extended versions of selected best papers will be invited for publication in the Journal of Combinatorial Optimization, IEEE Transactions on Network Science and Engineering, and Computational Social Networks.

Authors who are interested in the above topics can submit their unpublished work to CSoNet 2021. A clear indication of the motivation and comparison with prior related work should be presented. Simultaneous submission to a journal or another conference with refereed proceedings is not allowed.

Submissions must adhere to the following guidelines:

      Papers must be formatted using the LNCS format ( without altering margins or the font point.

      The maximum length of a regular paper (including references) is 12 pages; 2 pages for an extended abstract.

      Proofs omitted due to space constraints must be placed in an appendix to be read by the program committee members at their discretion.
