I first heard of this a bit too late to develop our work on data mining using the LiveJournal friends network into something that fits, but it looks to be an interesting issue.

Did anyone reading this submit something? I'd be curious to hear from those who are publishing an article in this or a similar venue.

Edit, 06:10 CST Tue 19 Dec 2006 - I did send in an abstract, but it looks as if they are looking for more the sociocultural angle rather than purely technical KDD and machine learning research.

There's a Yahoo Group, sns-researchers, that danah started for the social network community. It's just getting off the ground now.
