 ** CASoN 2012 -- Second Call For Papers **

*4th International Conference on Computational Aspects of Social **Networks
Sao Carlos, Brazil
21 - 23 Novemver, 2012


*CASoN Series*:

*Conference Objective*:
CASoN’12 brings together an interdisciplinary venue for social scientists,
mathematicians, computer scientists, engineers, computer users, and
students to
exchange and share their experiences, new ideas, and research results about
aspects (theory, applications and tools) of intelligent methods applied to
Social Networks, and to discuss the practical challenges encountered and the
solutions adopted. The 3-day conference will feature prominent keynote
workshop, tutorials, poster and paper presentation in parallel tracks.
Industrial Workshop/Tutorials and conference sessions will allow individuals
interested in the theory, methods, or applications of social network
analysis to
share ideas and explore common interests.

*CASoN’12 will focus on the following themes*

A. Computational methods (but not restricted to):
* Neural Networks and Connectionist Models
* Evolutionary Algorithms
* Fuzzy Logic
* Knowledge Management
* Multi-valued Logic
* Semantic Networks
* Rough Sets
* Intelligent Agents
* Ontologies
* Reinforcement Learning
* Applications on Social Networks:
* Network evolution

B. Network evolution and growth mechanisms.
* Online communities and computer networks.
* Information diffusion in social networks.
* Detection of communities by document analysis.
* Topology of real networks.

C. Recommendation
* Information diffusion in social networks.
* Recommendations for product purchase, information acquisition and
establishment of social relations.
* Impact of recommendation models on the evolution of the social network.
* Classification models and their application in social recommender systems.

D. Advertisement models
