Workshop on the Communications and Networking Aspects of Online Social Networks - Call For Papers

Call For Papers



CAOS aims to provide a reference forum targeted not only to the community of researcher working on networking technologies for OSN, but it aims at engaging a multidisciplinary community of researchers working at the intersection between computer networking, complex networks, Big Data analytics, focusing on network technologies and abstractions for OSN. Therefore, the workshop also welcomes submissions applying a wide range of (computer- and network-science) techniques and tools to OSN for investigating the properties and roles of the network of (online) social relationships in the various sectors of the society (e.g., politics, economics, finance, health, entertainment).


Topics include, but are not limited to:


  • Communications challenges in OSNs
  • Platforms, protocols and applications for OSNs
  • Decentralized, mobile and location-based OSNs
  • Trust, reputation, privacy and security in OSNs
  • Adversarial-aware analysis of OSN data
  • Dynamics of trends, information and opinion diffusion in OSNs
  • Recommendations and advertising in OSNs
  • Social Search in OSNs
  • Measurement, analysis and modeling of popular online social networks
  • BigData analysis of OSNs seen as complex networked systems
  • Information extraction and search in OSNs
  • Complex-network analysis of OSNs
  • Measurement, analysis and modeling of networked users' behavior through OSNs data
  • Analysis of the use of OSNs in the urban context
  • Network challenges of crowdsourcing is OSNs
  • Network challenges in multidisciplinary applications of OSNs (economics, medicine, society, politics, homeland security, etc.)
  • AI technologies applied to OSNs modeling and analysis
