                                Track on
Social Networks, Large Networks and their Applications (SLNA)
Naples Italy, 28 November – 1 December 2016

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 society, not only in terms of
structure and dynamics, but also regarding scientific and technological
Online 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:
