International Workshop on Social Network Analysis and Digital Humanities co-located with i-Know 2017

We are pleased to announce the International Workshop on Social Network Analysis and Digital Humanities co-located with the The International Conference on Knowledge Technologies and Data-driven Business - i-Know 2017, 11th-12th October 2017, Graz, Austria. Submission deadline June 19th, 2017 Extended: July 7th, 2017.

Submit your paper here!


We invite original submissions addressing all aspects of social networks analysis and digital humanities. Online social networks and social media sites enable numerous users to collaboratively create online information by producing new content and by establishing new links between people, information, and services. At the same time, these users leave digital traces on the Web, which provide unparalleled research opportunities for studying questions related to sociology, psychology, behavioral science, or political and economic science. While the study of human digital traces has attracted attention from different communities, understanding human social behavior via non-invasive methods remains a challenging task and an open problem. Tackling this challenge requires new methods, instruments and techniques as well as an interdisciplinary effort from researchers across disciplines such as computer science, humanities, social sciences and others. This workshop seeks original submissions on either methods or practices at the crossroads of these various disciplines.

We invite submissions that may include the following topics, but are not limited to:

The goal of this workshop is to share and discuss research that goes hopefully beyond the classic SNA research.
