Online Social Networks are a massively successful phenomenon, used by billions of users to interact. Nowadays, information diffusion in Online Social Networks and Media (OSNEM) has a major role, among many others, for recommendation systems, advertising, and political campaigns. Moverover, the way information circulates in OSNEM impacts on the formation of opinions and on the social roles of users and their influence on others. OSNEM are extensively used for spreading information, opinions and ideas, but also to propagate fake news and rumors. Therefore, prevention of spam, bots and fake accounts, information leakage, trustworthiness of information and trust between users are relevant research issues associated with information diffusion.

This special issue seeks contributions pushing the state of the art in all facets of information and opinion diffusion in online social networks and media. We solicit manuscripts where quantitative and/or data-driven approach is used to investigate information and opinion diffusion in OSNEM.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

- Dynamics of trends, information and opinion diffusion in OSNEM
- Recommendations and advertising in OSNEM
- Spread of news, topics, and opinions
- Trust, reputation, privacy in OSNEM information and opinion diffusion
- Rumors and fake news spreading in OSNEM
- Bots and fake users detection
- Influence analysis and social influence
- Identification of diffusion sources and influencers
- Methods to modify/control/maximise information and opinion diffusion
- Measurements of information and opinion diffusion??in OSNEM
- Models of information and opinion diffusion
- Data-driven approaches to study information and opinion diffusion in OSNEM


*** Tentative Schedule ***

[DMANET] Linköping University expands research in railway planning (PhD-position or post-doc position)

The research group for public transport and railways at Linköping University, Sweden, is expanding its research in railway planning and searches for new staff members. Maybe you or somebody you know is interested in joining our team?

You can find further details and information below, or check out the following link: goo.gl/rGUapR <http://www.goo.gl/rGUapR>

========

Linköping University expands research in railway planning

The research group for public transport and railways at Linköping University is expanding its research in railway planning and searches for new staff members.

The research group is part of the Division for Communication and Transport Systems affiliated in the city center of Norrköping. The division has over 70 researchers, lecturers and graduate students, studying communication networks in its broadest sense. Many projects aim at developing models and methods, which describe the traffic system and can be used as decision support tools by infrastructure managers, operators, vehicle drivers and others.

Current projects in railway include, for example, construction of robust railway timetables, defining and balancing multi-objectives for timetable qualities, socio-economic distribution of railway capacity, and scheduling of time for maintenance work.

Our research is carried out together with stakeholders and funders from industry and society. We are coordinating the national research program Capacity in the Railway Traffic System (KAJT) and some of our collaborators are RISE SICS, Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute (VTI) and Swedish Transport Administration. We are also honored to organize the 8th International Conference on Railway Operations Modelling and Analysis (RailNorrköping) which will be held in June 2019.

We are now looking for people who want to join our group, and work with one or more of the following topics:
- Operational train planning and shunting, aiming at increased rail cargo speeds and capacity.
- Strategic planning of critical infrastructure components (switches) which have a major impact both on maintenance and traffic.

We wish you have a strong background from mathematics, modelling, optimization, programming and/or simulation. You have studied either applied mathematics, computer science, operations research, software engineering or equivalent. If you also have experiences from railways or transportation planning it is beneficial but not necessary. You should in any case have a keen interest for analytical work, planning and scheduling, algorithmic development, be fluent in some computer language(s), English and (soon) scientific writing.

We are searching for a person with a master's degree for a PhD-position or a person with a PhD-degree for a post-doc position. We hope to fill the positions by early 2018.

Please get in touch if you are interested in joining our group and contributing to better transportation planning decisions in the future.

Postdoc position in SAT solving at KTH Royal Institute of Technology

The TCS Group at KTH Royal Institute of Technology invites applications for a postdoc position in computer science focused on SAT solving.

 

KTH Royal Institute of Technology is the leading technical university in Sweden. The Theoretical Computer Science Group at KTH (www.csc.kth.se/tcs) offers a strong research environment spanning a wide range of research topics such as complexity theory and approximation algorithms, computer and network security, cryptography, formal methods and natural language processing. We have one of Europe's most prominent groups in algorithms and complexity theory, and the research conducted here has attracted numerous international awards and grants in recent years.

 

The postdoctoral researcher will be working in the research group of Jakob Nordstrom. Much of the activities of this research group revolve around the themes of efficient algorithms for satisfiability in propositional logic (SAT solving) and lower bounds on the efficiency of methods for reasoning about SAT (proof complexity). On the practical side, one problem of interest is to gain a better understanding of, and improve, the performance of current state-of-the-art SAT solvers --- in particular, solvers using conflict-driven clause learning (CDCL). We are even more interested in exploring new techniques that hold out the theoretical possibility of exponential improvements over CDCL, but seem hard to implement efficiently in practice, e.g., algebraic methods such as Groebner bases or geometric methods such as pseudo-Boolean solving.

 

The research project is financed by a Breakthrough Research Grant and a Consolidator Grant from the Swedish Research Council and a Starting Independent Researcher Grant from the European Research Council. A more detailed description of the project can be found at www.csc.kth.se/~jakobn/project-proofcplx. The group currently consists of three postdoctoral researchers and four PhD students (in addition to the PI). There are also several other professors, postdocs, and PhD students in the TCS Group working on other aspects of algorithms and computational complexity, and so this is a unique opportunity to explore new connections between theoretical and practical areas of computer science within a vibrant and growing research environment.

 

This postdoc position is a full-time employed position for one year with a possible (and expected) one-year extension. The starting date should preferably be during the autumn semester of 2017 or in early 2018, although this is to some extent negotiable.

 

The application deadline is September 24, 2017. See http://www.csc.kth.se/~jakobn/openings/D-2017-0455-Eng.php for the full announcement with more information and instructions how to apply. Informal enquiries are welcome and may be sent to jakobn@kth.se .

[DMANET] SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS - Special issue on Optimization for heterogeneous wireless networks - Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing Journal

*CALL FOR PAPERS*

*SPECIAL ISSUE ON:
Optimization for heterogeneous wireless networks integrating cellular
and ad-hoc networks*

*Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing - Hindawi-Wiley open
access journal*


*Important DATES
*Submission Deadline Friday, 27 October 2017
*Publication Date March 2018

*TOPIC SUMMARY*
In our networked society, wireless devices will constantly interact with
each other as well as with their environment, communicating over
licensed and unlicensed frequency bands, employing any possible link,
from short-range device-to-device communications integrated into the
existing and evolving cellular infrastructure to satellite
communications. The efficient and effective management of these
heterogeneous network architectures requires new optimization
approaches, including central and distributed optimization schemes, or a
combination thereof, where optimization can have very different
objectives, including spectral efficiency, latency, reliability, energy
efficiency meeting constraints on the available spectrum, backhaul
network capacity, and deployment or operational costs.

In this special issue we solicit contributions on optimization-based
approaches to the design, dimensioning, deployment and operation of

[DMANET] Call for Participation: GROW 2017 (Toronto) - 8th Workshop on Graph Classes, Optimization, and Width Parameters

=============================================================
GROW 2017 : CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
8th Workshop on Graph Classes, Optimization, and Width Parameters
The Fields Institute, Toronto — October 10-13, 2017
=============================================================

WWW: http://www.fields.utoronto.ca/activities/17-18/grow2017

GROW is invitation only, we have 10 spots available. For an invitation to
the workshop, please email: grow2017@cs.toronto.edu .

PLENARY SPEAKERS:
* Bruno Courcelle, University of Bordeaux, LaBRI, Bordeaux, France.
* Zdenek Dvorak, Charles University, Prague, Czech Republic.
* Anna Lubiw, University of Waterloo, Waterloo, Canada.

OVERVIEW:
The GROW conference brings together experts in both theoretical
and practical issues to design new strategies for dealing with
intractable graph problems. One well-known problem-solving
strategy decomposes the given problem into subproblems that can
be solved independently, and then combines these solutions into
an overall solution. Graph decompositions may lead to tractable
instances of generally intractable problems by virtue of defining
width parameters which, for some restricted but rich classes of
graphs, can be bounded. Once such a decomposition is computed
(hopefully in an efficient manner), a dynamic programming approach
often produces an efficient solution.

* Derek Corneil (Chair), University of Toronto
* Jan Kratochvil, Charles University

Authors are invited to submit a draft of a full paper with at most 12
pages (excluding the references section).

The usage of pdflatex and the LIPIcs style file (see below) are
mandatory; no changes to font size, page geometry, etc. are permitted.
Submissions not in the correct format or submitted after the deadline
will not be considered.

The paper should contain a succinct statement of the issues and of their
motivation, a summary of the main results, and a brief explanation of
their significance, accessible to non-specialist readers.

Proofs omitted due to space constraints must be put into an appendix, to
be read by the program committee members at their discretion.

Simultaneous submission to other conferences with published proceedings
or to journals is not allowed. PC members are excluded from submitting.

There will be a rebuttal period for authors. Authors will receive
the reviews of their submissions (via EasyChair) on November 21 and have
three days to submit rebuttals (via EasyChair). These rebuttals become
part of the PC meeting, but entail no specific responses.


========================================================================

PROCEEDINGS

Accepted papers will be published in the proceedings of the symposium.
As usual, these proceedings will appear in the Leibniz International
Proceedings in Informatics (LIPIcs) series, based at Schloss Dagstuhl.
This guarantees perennial, free and easy electronic access, while the
authors retain the rights over their work. With their submission,
authors consent to sign a license authorizing the program committee
chairs to organize the electronic publication of their paper, provided
the paper is accepted.
