====================================================================

Recently, social networks have grown rapidly in size and popularity.
The global internet population has witnessed a popular expansion to
reach billions of users around the world.  For connected users,
social networks provide a most suitable space for sharing data,
interacting with other users and forming communities with
common interests.
Social networks have important impacts on today's society not only
in terms of structure and dynamics, but also regarding scientific
and technological aspects. Social networks raise new research
challenges due to the numerous emerging needs and applications.  
The focus of this track is on emerging and novel concepts,
architectures and methodologies for social and more generally
large networks analysis, tools and applications, including issues
related to complex graphs, semantics, big data, and security.

The topics of interest for this track include, but are not limited to:

Social Network Analysis - methods, algorithms, processes
--------------------------------------------------------
Social graph processing / manipulation
Usage / implementation of Big Data algorithms
Avoiding fragmentation of the social graph
*Open cross-platform interactions
*Usage of Identity algorithms (OAuth, openID, etc.)
*Usage of Identity APIs
Dynamics and evolution patterns of social networks, trend prediction
Information diffusion in Social Networks

Social analytic tools
---------------------
Approaches based on Semantic Web Technologies
Ontologies for managing social networks
