Fist Call for Papers

The First International Workshop on Mining Social Networks for Decision
(MSN-DS 2009)
20-22/July/2009 Athens, Greece
Important Dates:
6 February, 2009 Paper Submission Deadline
20 March, 2009 Notification of Acceptance
3 April, 2009 Camera-Ready Due
7 April, 2009 Registration Due
20-22 July, 2009 Conference Dates

Mining social networks has now becoming a very popular research area not
only for data mining and web mining but also social network analysis.
Data mining is a technique that has the ability to process and analyze
large amount of data and by this to discover valuable information from
the data.
In recent years, due to the growth of social communications and social
networking websites
data mining becomes a very important and powerful technique to process
and analyze such large amount of data.
Recently, many researches are focusing on developing new data mining
techniques and algorithms
or devoting to improve traditional mining techniques for social network
However, it is meaningless, if the discovered valuable and useful data
have not been applied in real application environment.
Social data are the aggregations of communication interaction and
experience of people
and it if useful for us to make decision from these data.
Thus, it could be an important time to shift the research focus to
application area such as decision support.

This year, the workshop will be held in conjunction with The 2009
International Conference on Advances in Social Networks Analysis and
Mining (ASONAM) in Athens, Greece. We are looking forward to you
submission and participation to the workshop and the main conference.
This workshop invites papers of the following topics, but never exclusive:

    * Mining Social Data for Decision Support
    * Mining Social Web sites for Decision Support
    * Algorithms for Mining Social Networks for Decision Support
    * Matching Engines and Interface for Decision Support Systems
    * System Architectures
    * Intelligent and Multi-agent based Decision Support Systems
