Brief Bio
Carmen Morgado is currently an Assistant Professor at Universidade Nova de Lisboa (Computer Science Dept., FCT). She received her PhD at Computer Sciences at Universidade Nova de Lisboa in 2009 and her MSc in 1999. She also has a bachelors degree in Electronic Engineering (1991 - Instituto Superior de Engenharia de Lisboa). Her current research activities are on social software an on the studies related to modelling social interactions inside these systems using group communications models.


Social networks have become an increasingly popular communication tool, making more and more part of our every day life. More and more people use social networks as a quick and easy way to communicate, share information and also to find contents and contacts. As a consequence of this there is an increasing amount of information offered to users.

But not all the information is important or relevant to all users to whom it is offered. So there is a need of mechanisms to help users in selecting and filtering the information based on the analysis of the social network and on its users profiles, behaviors and contents. In order to accomplish this there is an increasing need to understand the social connections and behaviors within these networks and also analyze and manage the information that exists in these systems.

This special session welcomes research contributions that focus on systems and applications, data analysis and mining, that are relevant to improve social networking environments.
