The study of social networks originated in social and business communities. In recent years, social network research has advanced significantly; the development of sophisticated techniques for Social Network Analysis and Mining (SNAM) has been highly influenced by the online social websites, email logs, phone logs and instant messaging systems, which are widely analyzed using graph theory and machine learning techniques. People perceive the web increasingly as a social medium that fosters interaction among people, sharing of experiences and knowledge, group activities, community formation and evolution. This can be seen as rising prominence of SNAM in academia, politics, homeland security and business. Many entities of our society evolved into networks in which actors are increasingly dependent on their structural embedding.

The international conference on Advances in Social Network Analysis and Mining (ASONAM 2009) will primarily provide an interdisciplinary venue that will bring together practitioners and researchers from a variety of field to promote collaborations and exchange of ideas and practices. ASONAM 2009 is intended to address important aspects with a specific focus on the emerging trends and industry needs associated with social networking analysis and mining. The conference solicits experimental and theoretical work on social network analysis and mining along with its applications to real life situations.

We have put together a very rich academic and social programs. The academic program includes three keynote speakers and a number of high quality papers to be presented by researchers from North America, Europe, Asia and Australia. The social program includes a wonderful banquet on the cruise. Overall, participating in ASONAM2009 will be a wonder experience to always remember. The final program can be downloaded at
