Scope - Topics of Interest


The rapid development of modern Information and Communication technologies (ICTs) in the past few years and their introduction into people’s daily lives has greatly increased the amount of information available at all levels of their social environment. People have been steadily turning to the social web for social interaction, news and content consumption, networking, and job seeking. As a result, vast amounts of user information are populating the social Web. In light of these developments the social mining workshop aims to study new and innovative techniques and methodologies on social data mining. Social mining is a relatively new and fast-growing research area, which includes various tasks such as recommendations, personalization, e-recruitment, opinion mining, sentiment analysis, searching for multimedia data (images, video, etc).
