The Third ACM SIGMOD Workshop on Databases and Social Networks (DBSocial 2013), to be held in New York, NY on June 23 2013,
in conjunction with SIGMOD/PODS 2013, 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.
