The First IEEE INFOCOM Workshop on the Communications and Networking Aspects of Online Social Networks (CAOS’19)
in conjunction with IEEE INFOCOM 2019
April 29 – May 2, 2019, Paris, France
Online Social Networks (OSNs) are a multidisciplinary research playground. On the one hand, they represent a challenging environment for researchers working in academia and industry to develop the next generation of networking platforms and their services. At the same time, the digital footprints that people leave behind through OSNs provide a unique source to investigate and understand (by exploiting BigData analytics) people's behavior, human relationships, and societal phenomena such as epidemics spreading, terrorist networks, the diffusion of opinions, the pulse of a city, the evolution of migrations, etc.
IEEE CAOS focuses on (i) understanding the behavior of OSN systems, and OSN users; (ii) designing OSN mechanisms, services and applications for the benefit of users, (iii) controlling the use, and possibly, misuse of OSN services; (iv) predicting the way information spreads in OSN and users acquire or lose importance and influence in their local and global communities.
