CLOSED Call for Papers: Special Issue on Social Media Computing

Share this on:
Submissions Due: 15 May 2021

With massive amounts of social media data currently available, social media computing has attracted considerable attention in recent years, which aims to represent, analyze, and extract useful patterns from social media data. Social media computing is one typical cross-discipline of computer science, data mining, natural language process, and social sciences. As an emerging research field, there are various open, unexplored, and unidentified problems. There is a great need for computational models for tasks such as social media pattern analysis and prediction on social media data.

Currently, social media computing faces new challenges in social media data representation, computational models, natural language preprocessing, visualization, and applications. This special issue aims to provide a platform for researchers and practitioners to present their original research works and engineering experiences in social media computing that help develop a better understanding of the many aspects of social media data or demonstrate a novel application based on social media data. Topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Social mining and prediction
  • Social network analysis and user modeling
  • Network representation learning, GNN, and applications
  • Computational social sciences
  • Computational communication
  • Social influence modeling and prediction
  • Social media security and privacy
  • NLP in social media
  • Multi-media and social media
  • Visualization in social media
  • Sentiment analysis and opinion mining in social media
  • AI for education, finance, and law
  • Computational history
  • Social robots
  • Epidemic analysis

Once accepted by the journal, the authors will be invited to present their works in the Conference of SMP 2021.
