DBSocial (ACM SIGMOD Workshop on Databases and Social Networks), to be held in Athens, Greece in conjunction with SIGMOD/PODS 2011, is a venue for database research applied to the problems of extraction, querying, and analysis of social networks. DBSocial aims at disseminating results founded on database research and practice that advance the state-of-the-art in the observation, management, and analysis of inherently networked data originating primarily from social phenomena.

DBSocial welcomes both theoretical and practical papers whose approaches are within the scope of databases and very closely related areas (e.g., data mining and information retrieval), and whose validation are on par with the high standards in the database community.
