Call for Papers
The widespread use of online interactive platforms including social networking applications, community support applications draw the attention of academics and businesses. The basic trust of this research is that the very nature of these platforms can be best described as a network of entangled interactions. We agree with scholars that these platforms and features necessitate the call for network science as an emerging research area to better understand their underpinnings.
This workshop provides academics, practitioners with a broader perspective on agile approaches to software development. The term “hope” signifies the fact that practitioners consider agile thinking as a panacea, but the hype term characterizes the agile development as yet-another-movement in the history of software development.
We invite submissions in the form of academic papers as full technical papers, experience reports as short papers. We are interested in papers that are conceptual and/or empirically-based.
Papers should be submitted in LNCS format and the results described must be unpublished and must not be under review elsewhere. All accepted papers as extended abstract (maximum 5 pages) will be published as workshop proceedings and full papers as book chapters. Furthermore, selected papers will be invited to submit a revised version for a publication in Journal of Software & Systems Development with a fast-track review.
We invite research articles, works in progress and experience reports emphasizing field works concerning network science. Some of the specific subjects which are of interest in this workshop, but not limited to, are:
- Information and Communication Network Analysis
- Social Network Analysis
- Complex Systems and Graph Theory
- Big Data and Information Network Analysis
- Business Intelligence and Network Science
- Methodology, Tools, Techniques for Network Science
- Social Commerce and Network Science
- Industry-specific Web Platforms (Finance, Telecom, Health, Retail, Social Media)
