Dear colleagues,

We have two important updates for the 10th Int. Conf on Computational Data and Social Networks (CSoNet 2021):
As a result of extenuating circumstances due to COVID-19, CSoNet 2021 will be fully virtual. The registration fee is $50.
Submission deadline is extended to July 24, 2021.
For more information, please see:  
***Best Paper Awards and Journal Special Issues 
 There will be one best paper award and one best student paper award. Selected papers will be recommended to IEEE Transactions on Network Science and Engineering (TNSE) and Springer Journal of Combinatorial Optimization (JOCO) for potential fast-track publications. 
The important dates are as follows.

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 The conference solicits theoretical, methodological, empirical, and experimental research reporting original and unpublished results on computational big data and social networks.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.
