The 2nd IEEE ICC Workshop on Dynamic Social Networks (DySON 2015)

June 2015, London, U.K.

Co-located with IEEE ICC 2015


Call for Papers

Wireless and mobile social networks have gained interest the last decade and nowadays they have become in many cases the lion’s share of wireless businesses. Such networks are well known as the primal channels for human communication, means for increasing marketing potentials, tools for enabling social research, and forums for affecting political trends, all of which eventually indicate a more than ever increasing penetration and exploitation of wireless and mobile networks in human lives. The workshop on Dynamic Social Networks (DySON) will mainly cover the technical aspects of the interplay between social and dynamic communications networks, and more specifically will focus on original contributions regarding topics, such as structure, behavior, and optimization of social and mobile wireless and wired networks.

DySON aspires to raise the awareness of the research and industrial communities in the important topics of control and optimization of dynamic social networks and provide a venue for the presentation and dissemination of latest original contributions in the corresponding field of science.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • Interplay between online social networks and wireless communications
  • Network Utility Maximization (NUM)
  • Primal-dual decomposition for network algorithms
  • Optimal control of networks
  • Stochastic network optimization
  • Cross-layer network optimization
  • Spectrum-agile network optimization
  • Game theoretic and economic analysis
  • Social relationship graphs of mobile devices
  • Topology Control for complex networks
  • Resilience and fault-tolerant network optimization
  • Mobile cyber-physical systems
  • Control and optimization in cyber-physical systems
  • Optimal content dissemination in complex networks
  • Complex network structure analysis and optimization
  • Complexity & approximation of social/mobile network optimization
  • Control and optimization in social-aware network solutions
  • Graph theoretic analysis for mobile complex (social and wireless) networks
  • Structure of social networks and their influence to the design of advanced wireless networks
  • Advanced wireless networks
    • Adaptive algorithms for evolving online social and wireless networks
    • Social-aware network solutions in wireless communications
    • Social opportunistic networks
