			    CALL FOR PAPERS

 The 1st Int'l Workshop on Social Knowledge Discovery and Utilization
			       SKDU2012
	    http://people.cs.aau.dk/~rpan/skdu/
				   
In conjunction with IEEE/ACM ASONAM2012, Istanbul, Turkey,

----------------------------------------------------------------------
OVERVIEW
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Today the emergence of web-based communities and hosted services such
as social networking sites, microbloggings, wikis and folksonomies,
brings in tremendous freedom of Web autonomy and facilitate
collaboration and knowledge sharing between users. Along with the
interaction between users and computers, social cyberspace is rapidly
becoming an important part of our digital experience, ranging from
digital textual information to diverse multimedia forms. These aspects
and characteristics constitute of the core of second generation of
Web. Some sorts of on-the-fly experience is learned and obtained by
daily users. This type of experience can, in addition, be recognized
as a particular way to cultivate domain knowledge. One typical
instance is friend-sourcing. Friend-sourcing gathers social
information in a social context, which information can be used to
personalize users's computing experiences, for example to aid question
answering for topics comprehensible only to a few of a user's friends.

A prominent challenge lies in modeling and mining this vast pool of
data to extract, represent and distribute the meaningful knowledge and
to utilize structures and dynamics of the social knowledge, such as
emerging social networks residing in the social media, for better user
experience and satisfaction. This workshop attempts to fill the gap
between social experience and knowledge discovery and utiliztion,
encouraging to share achievements, experiments, and ideas from the
perspective of knowledge discovery and data mining, and to propose a
range of strategies and practices to identify, create, represent,
distribute, and enable the adoption of novel insights and experiences
for knowledge utilization.

----------------------------------------------------------------------
TOPICS OF INTEREST
----------------------------------------------------------------------
The main goals of the workshop are: (1) to create a platform to
discuss latest issues, trends, solutions, and cutting-edge research
strategies in knowledge discovery and utilization in context of social
cyberspace; (2) to bring together acdemic researchers and industrial
practitioners to discuss problems, current studies, and solutions on
how the knowledge is discovered and utilized in a socialized
environment to facilitate human experience and satisfaction.

We solicit original and high quality submissions addressing all
aspects of this field. The topics of interest include, but are not be
limited to the following:

- Computational models for social media
- Influence, trust, and privacy
- Search in social networks and social media
- Interoperability among social applications and social media
- Techniques for social-network analysis/mining and for the analysis
  of social-media phenomena
- Adversarial blogging and counter measures
- Counter-Terror social network analysis
- Social networking security risks
- Social engineering through social networks
- Data privacy in Social Networks
- Secure information sharing in online communities
