SMART 2013: International Workshop on Social Media Analytics and Recommendation Technologies

Sydney, Australia  •  April 5, 2013

The advent of online social media such as Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook, has been one of the most exciting events of this decade. Many such social media sites are extremely rich in data, which on the one hand requires recommendation for users to efficiently make personalised use of those media and on the other hand provides effective collective information for analysis.

Social media analytics deals with the problems of analysing content and their interactions in social media, and determining the important structural patterns in such content and interactions, while social recommendation deals with the problem of finding and introducing meaningful relationships among people, communities and social media content.

The goal of this workshop is to build a community around social media analytics and recommendation technologies, and instigate discussion about these emerging research areas.

Papers are invited for consideration in all aspects of social media analytics and recommendation, including (but not restricted to):

  • social network analysis
  • social recommender systems
  • social influence analysis & metrics
  • social behaviour analysis
  • social fraud and risk analysis
  • opinion mining/sentiment analysis
  • social bookmarking/tagging
  • topic and event tracking
  • people recommendation in social networks
  • community recommendation in social networks
  • applications (online dating, job recommendation)
