Call for Paper: Business Applications of Social Network Analysis (BASNA 2011)Call for Paper: Business Applications of Social Network Analysis (BASNA 2011)

The aim of BASNA 2011 is to encourage multidisciplinary discussions related to novel ideas and applications geared towards analyzing social network data for business use. By bringing together researchers in the fields of SNA, data mining, and management studies, the workshop will focus on identifying areas of collaboration among their respective disciplines:

  • The role of data mining techniques in identifying scalable methods for the extraction and organization of social relations for management research and business practice
  • The role of management research in guiding data mining efforts and SNA metrics development towards theoretically-grounded discoveries about social network emergence.
  • The role of Social Network Analysis in developing and applying metrics and tools for the mapping, evaluation, visualization, and design of social relations in organizations.

BASNA 2011 is seeking original research work which is not yet published or not submitted in any other conferences, journals or magazines.

Accepted papers of the workshop would be available via IEEE Xplore digital library.

Selected authors will be invited to submit an extended version of their paper, with a fast reviewing process, to the Journal of Information Science and Technology , to the International Journal of Knowledge-Based Organizations, and to the International Journal of Social Network Mining

The workshop’s topics of interest include (but are not limited to the following):

Topics of Interest:

  • Algorithms for data mining social networks, graphs, links
  • Applications of social network data mining to address a real world business scenario
  • Anomaly detection in network based applications like intrusion detection in telecommunication
  • Application of scale-free networks
  • Mobile social networks
  • Application of network data mining to discover consumer, organization, and interorganizational structures
  • Data mining applications for business blogging and micro-blogging (real time mining)
  • Community discovery in social networks
  • Data mining on large graphs
  • Data mining applications for viral marketing
  • Behavioral analysis in social networks
  • Social semantic web
  • Privacy issues in social networks
  • Recommendation systems based on social network analysis
Social Network Analysis (SNA) based:

  • Knowledge Management (identifying experts, fostering knowledge exchange and integration, creating and developing communities of practice)
  • Marketing (identifying new and key customers, customer relationship management)
  • Innovation Support (enhancing innovation capacity, supporting new product development teams)
  • Change Management (managing change, post-merger integration, identifying key enablers)
  • Talent Management (hiring and career development)
  • Leadership Development (decision-making, identifying leaders)
  • Intra-Organizational Coordination (supporting coordination and information flows among organizational members and units)
  • Inter-Organizational Coordination (supporting collaboration in consortia, industrial districts, inter-organizational alliances)
