SCOPE AND MOTIVATION Recently, social network research has advanced
rapidly with the prevalence of online social applications and mobile
social communications systems. Metaverse has emerged as one of the
future Internet for business, socialization, entertainment, and
education in fully connected, immersive, and engaging online 3D virtual
experiences. Nevertheless, the ongoing pandemic via contact social
networks has caused tremendous human life and economic loss around the
world, and infodemic is one of the major social impacts that make people
difficult to discriminate trustworthy sources, from false and
manipulative information sources. Therefore, researchers are
increasingly interested in addressing a wide spectrum of challenges in
social networks, such as developing social-aware algorithms for
communications systems, identifying the topological common structures
and information/influence flows, analyzing the social media and
evolutions of social graphs, and exploiting location-based and
contextual information embedded in mobile social networks to create
innovative applications. Due to its increasing prevalence and
interdisciplinary nature, social networks have also attracted intensive
research interests across multiple disciplines, including artificial
intelligence, blockchain, big data analytics, information security and
privacy protection, psychology, and marketing. In light of the above
crucial needs, Selected Areas in Communication Symposium in Social
Networks will serve as a forum for researchers and technologists from
academia, industry, and government to discuss the state-of-the-art,
present their cutting-edge innovations and contributions, and set future
directions in all aspects of social networks.

The symposium seeks original contributions in the following
topical areas, plus others that are not explicitly listed but are
closely related.

Artificial Intelligence for social networks and applications Social
network analysis on epidemic diagnosis and asymptomatic infector
tracking for COVID-19 and other pandemic Convergence and interplay
between Metaverse and the underlying communication networks
Infrastructure, platform, protocol design, and optimization for mobile
social networks, social vehicular networks, mobile social clouds, social
Internet-of-Things, and new paradigm of future social-aware
communication networks Social network graph modeling, analysis,
measurements, and experiments using big data for a better understanding
of social network influence, reputation, recommendation, and community
structure Data mining, machine learning, information retrieval, signal
processing, and artificial intelligence in social media and social
contexts Trusted networking, privacy and security, user behaviors and
dynamics, and digital right management for big data from social networks
Innovative social networks applications and services to mobile Internet,
multimedia networks, mobile commerce, cyber-physical systems, and their
potential social, economic, and cultural impacts Multidisciplinary and
interdisciplinary research on social networks

The authors of selected papers from this symposium will be invited
to submit an extended version of their work for fast-track review
and possible publication in the IEEE Open Journal of the
Communications Society

IMPORTANT DATES Deadline for paper submission: 13 November 2022 (Firm)
Date for notification: 18 January 2023 Deadline for final paper
submission: 15 February 2023
