Graph Algorithms

We invite research contributions for the Social Network Analysis and Graph Algorithms (SNAGA) for the Web track at the 27th edition of The Web Conference (WWW 2018), to be held April 23-27, 2018 in Lyon, France (https://www2018.thewebconf.org).

Social networks on the Web have lowered the barrier to produce and consume online information by enabling new links between people, objects, information, and services. The vast amount of data available from many online agents and sources has created an unprecedented opportunity to address both new and longstanding questions. On the other hand, these systems have also become targets of issues related to fraud, privacy, fairness and transparency. The sheer size of data has also created challenges regarding storage, analysis, and sensemaking.

We encourage submissions in all areas of graph theory and algorithms, graph mining, and social network analysis; broadly work that integrates ideas from data mining, machine learning, social sciences, and computer science theory. This track explicitly focuses on the investigation of graph-based techniques for social networks on the Web toward developing new theories, models, and algorithms to make these systems more effective and efficient.

Example topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Social media analysis through the lenses of networks
  • Applications of graph mining in neuroscience, economics, sociology, etc.
  • Discovering causal effects in networked environments
  • Fairness, bias, and transparency of graph mining and learning algorithms
  • Fraud, spam and malice detection in relational domains
  • Social mining, social search, and social recommendation systems
  • Link prediction
  • Social reputation and trust management
  • Influence propagation and information diffusion
  • Multi-relational graph analysis
  • Dynamic network analysis and algorithms for graph streams
  • Algorithms for graph reconstruction, graph identification, and network inference
  • Mining and learning in graphs with missing information and noise
  • Analysis of heterogeneous, signed, attributed, and annotated networks
  • Location-aware social network analysis and mobility
  • Privacy-preserving graph algorithms
  • Algorithms for subgraph and motif discovery
  • Graph summarization and visual analytics
  • Querying and indexing algorithms for massive graphs
  • Methods for graph representation, sparsification, sketching, and compression
