Web-based social networking is immensely popular on the Internet. Although web-based social networks gained much of their traction in the entertainment area, they are viewed as promising tools to bring together large number of people in a collaborative setting. In particular, the person-to-person linkages that are the basis for social networks are well suited for activities such as knowledge management, resource or talent discovery, and information dissemination.

The main purpose of this workshop is bring together researchers from both academia and industry in this emerging topic to exchange ideas and learn from each other. We intend to have different types of sessions including refereed papers, invited talks, and panels to stimulate the discussions. The workshop is interested in a variety of topics within the context of social software systems and networks including, but not limited to:

  • Mobile social networks
  • Peer-to-peer social networks
  • Social messaging
  • Trust models for social networks
  • Sensor networks and social sensing
  • Social search
  • Social networking inspired collaborative computing
  • Information propagation on social networks
  • New architectures for web-based social networks
  • Resource and knowledge discovery using social networks
  • Measurement studies of actual social networks
  • Simulation models for social networks
