Publication

No formal proceedings will be published prior to the symposium. We will rather have post symposium publication to allow authors to incorporate the feedback from the audience in the final version of their papers.

After the symposium, we will invite some papers for possible publications in the Social Networks Analysis and Mining Journal by Springer. Papers which are not published in the journal will appear in an edited book to be published by Springer.
